Well after all this experience off and on meds...you start to get a feel. I was off and on zithromax a few times. . . and 2 days after i stopped i began to feel worse. Herxing is just basically when my symptoms "flared up"...but then i began to feel relief and it went away. I started this med feeling crappy....and its just gotten worse to the point of i feel just as bad as i did before i started any medicine. Like i said, its hard to tell. But just get use to your body and what its telling you. I know that sounds cliche. But you'll be able to identify herxing/or reactions/ or w/e. Best of luck with you and your treatment. Keep me posted on how ya feel!
