While many medicines: May have anxiety and/or depression as a side effect, the first thing would be to be certain that that is the cause. If so, switching to a different medication would be my first choice, not to treat the side effects of one med with yet another. SSRI's take weeks to months to really kick in, so it depends on whether you are going to be on cipro (ciprofloxacin) for that long. Clonazepam would be better short-term. ...Read more

Why do bronchodilating drugs (such as Albuterol) cause rapid pulse, nervousness and anxiety even when used as directed?
That's what they do: The medications you mention do that as part of their intended action. That's how dilation works. It's not an Asthma cure, but rather symptom relief. It mimics the release of adrenaline effects on our body that increase heart rate and breathing capacity to allow us to fight or flee is what it does. The tightness opens, but our heart also races and it's like we're being threatened. OK? ...Read more

Probably not but...: Acute lyme disease responds well to Doxycycline though lyme specialists advise 200 mg 2x/day for 30 days. If his recurrence is due to a new bite I advise that dose. If it's recurrence of previous infection, as dr. Raff mentions, this is a controversial subject. There is strong evidence lyme can persist (http://bit. Ly/1ffxjxl) but I feel antibiotics are seldom effective for chronic lyme. See comment:. ...Read more

Anxiety IS a symptom: There may be connections between all or some of these complaints. Also, being deprived of adequate sleep (or any other need for a healthy body) matters.
