    Anxiety following medication

    Hello guys,

    I'm glad I found this forum! I took too much antibiotics for UTI(Augmenting tablets, 4 ceftriaxone injections, doxycline,zithromax) for one month. Luckily, UTI went away, but the meds left me with the following:

    1. Heart palpitation, especially at night or after eating
    2. Dry everything(palms, hair)
    3.Inability to sleep even during the day, as my heart begins racing immediately when I attempt to sleep
    4. foggy memory
    5. always tired

    I've had blood work done(thyroid,liver, potassium, calcium, ...) and my heart checked and everything is normal. I exercise daily and eat well.

    I was healthy and strong before these meds. Please suggest something(tests, treatment, type of doc to see, ...)!

    Note: I'm on omeplazole 20mg once perday for stomach gastritis.

    Do you feel better now? Just wondering if you took Probiotics when you were done? Since you have gastritis maybe you need more help with your gut health. I have H Pylori (stomach bacteria) and it messes with everything even though it is a stomach bug. A lot of people that didn't have anxiety issues before have pretty bad anxiety during and after. The PPI also makes my mouth dry so maybe that is affecting you even though it seems harmless that could be the culprit. Maybe try switching if possible. I don't know what else to suggest.

    There are anecdotal reports that omeplazole can cause anxiety, dry skin and insomnia for people who take over long periods of time. These "perhaps" side effects are not common. You could try a month without omeplazole and see how things change.

    I took to many antibiotics for a sinus infection that I couldn't get rid of and throw in more for a UTI I had, dental work I had done and I ended up in the hospital with C-diff.. . Some of the antibiotics he gave me had really bad side effects with my feet and legs but that went away soon as I stopped the drug.

    Since the C-diff I have had problems with my colon/stomach. Now I take Probiotics whenever I have to take antibiotics and sometime when I am not..

    I would look at what you are taking now and see if the doctor would change it to a different brand or just do a test of getting completely off what you are on now to make sure it is not a drug you are still on causing your problem..
