Which medicines are appropriate to take to relieve nervousness caused by taking ciprofloxin hydrochloridre? Is clonazepam and selective seretonin reupt

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?

My husband has Lyme disease he had a reoccurrence with nervousness and stiffness on doxycycline 100mg 7 days. Is that enough treatment?

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.

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. Naming a set of problems helps sum it up, but it won't fix anything. You really need to see a psychotherapist, perhaps get rx help and stick to a daily healthy life plan for eating, sleeping, etc. You're aging too quickly, slow down, calm down. ...Read more
