I'm on month 7 or 8 (lost count) and I was doing GREAT. I really was healing quite nicely. My mind was clearing up but I was experiencing discomfort in my lower abdomen for weeks and weeks. I thought it was the withdrawal, but my doctor said it is a prostate infection.
I told him I am terrified of taking Cipro or any other flouroquinoles antibiotic because I've heard it messes with GABA receptors and can make things REALLY bad for people who are sensitive to those sorts of things. So he prescribed me Doxycycline, which is not a quinolones antibiotic and he said it should be okay.
I took it for 4 days and was fine, but then got slammed with crazy symptoms. I felt like I was tripping on acid. I was dizzy and the ground was moving, and I was slammed with acute depression. The doctor told me to discontinue until the side effects subside and then he will prescribe another non-Cipro antibiotic.
I feel like I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place. I am worried I will never be cured of this goddamn infection because I won't be able to handle the antibiotics. I'm also worried because the doxycyline didn't seem to do anything.
My life was just starting to get back together but now it's fucked again. I haven't been able to work for two days and I'm worried if it continues like this I will lose my job.
I would appreciate any insight anybody can offer. Please!
