Discussions that mention prozac

Lyme Disease board


Hi Pearlscale,
Wow :eek: the more I read these boards, the more I realize I don't know much about lymes. I thought I've read everything but you guys have definately open my eyes to much more. I thank you all for that!
I haven't went to a lymes specialist yet, my doctor just said I have it and put me on doxycycline 2x/day, along with Prozac. (I suspect that I've had it for a few years at least, going on all my symptoms) I have 4 weeks of the doxy to take, now being in the middle of my third. I am worried that I need to take it longer cause I still feel so bad. Some days are better than others and my joints are better than they were but other things have come up worse than they were before. (ears and this horrible itchy rash I get every single day! Thinking that these are the crawley bugs makes me sick! ewwww!) And to hear you were infected 17 years ago totally blows me away that you still have it. I feel so bad for you, I can't even imagine having it for so long. I know now that I need to check into it further, that possibly abx aren't enough, and not just a short 4 week dose. I have so much to learn about this horrible disease! The doctors act like the abx will cure you completely, no big deal. After reading your story, it really makes me want to go to another doctor, a specialist, and to not just trust my reg. doctor who acts like it is nothing. I read up on the coinfections that you mentioned, I didn't even realize that these were out there and could be caused by the lymes. I appreciate you letting me know these things!
Mentally, I feel a little better, my husband can tell a change in me so maybe I am having some luck with the doxy so far? Did you ever take the doxycycline? Also, how long did it take for your joint pain to start? Did you have it? (I'm sure you did) I've had the joint pain for about 8 months so I am wondering how far into it the joint pain starts? (I had to use a cane for a few months to get up and down, and I'm only 39 yrs. old!!) :o
I will pray for you Marsha! and thanks for your replys, they have really helped me! It's so nice to FINALLY chat with someone who knows what I'm going thru. It is so true...people who don't have it, just don't understand...
