Herx .....

Hi everyone,
How long after starting antibiotic treatment do you get the herx?

Thanks,
J

Re: Herx .....

I herxed a day after I started abx. It lasted a few days. Then, I herxed again 3 weeks later. I just pulled out of that one. Herxing varies per individual. So, did they decide what abx to put you on?

Re: Herx .....

I'm on Cephpodoxime (I think I spelled it right). I was horribly fatigued (couldn't hardly keep my eyes open) and just basically run down. This last herx, my joints hurt worse than usual and I feel like I've been hit by a truck....the fatigue isn't as bad though.
