Cant tolerate any of my med's like I used to?

After I became ill and got my LYME diagnoses, I noticed that i was not able to take much medication at all...especially my pain med's...they made me feel even worse and added to the anxiety. I have tried several times to take small dose of vicodin, but it just makes me soooo sick...more dizzy too and it never bothered me before I was ill? even some supplements I used to take are making me jittery? anyone experience this? thanks

Re: Cant tolerate any of my med's like I used to?

I have and am currently experiencing all that too. I have been battling this for eight years. I have tried everything and was think I was getting medication sensitivity. I have recently started taking Buspar for the anxiety and it seems to be helping a LOT. I got to where when I took anything I would panic so bad I was not able to even think clear and remember anything. I was even afraid to drive or just leave the house. I am on my fourth week of zithro now and am having some difficulties with the normal dizzy and headaches but I seem to be tolerating it all now that I have the anxiety meds right. I strongly urge seeing a doctor that treats anxiety or "psych" problems to get the right med for you. I went through my GP and never got anything but the anti depressants that ALWAYS made the anxiety worse, then I got to a "psych" doc that got me the right stuff. I have been on it now for a month and a half and doing good. I go to work about 35 to 40 hours a week now and had missed nearly 3 weeks before the meds. Everyone is different so they might not work for you, but seeing a doc that treats it to see what is right is best, in my opinion. Hang in there we will get through this. Have faith and keep a smile.
