  • Severe insomnia and anxiety/panic attacks
    I was prescribed Augmentin for a sore throat. The doctor did not do a Strep test to determine if I had a bacterial or viral infection. She must have assumed bacterial. For three nights I had severe insomnia. I was only able to get about 2 hours sleep every night during a maximum of about 20 minutes per sleep session. I didn't realize that Augmentin was the cause. My sleeping environment was perfect for sleep except I would lie there awake. Eventually panic would set in if some nasal congestion or stoppage manifested itself. I'd jump out of bed and turn on the light. If I could not get relief, I found myself walking through my darkened house turning on lights. But nothing seemed to calm the situation. I also had severe panic or anxiety attacks. I had to escape darkened rooms at night. I could not sit still throughout the day. I felt jumpy, terribly fatigued, unable to focus, and anxious. I stopped taking Augmentin and I finally was able to get almost seven hours of sleep although I did wake four times during that period due to congestion. After some local remedies, I was able to fall back asleep. The anxiety attacks have stopped. I can now focus again and have some energy to read or do work. For completeness, I took Augmentin three years as prescribed by my oral surgeon when he had to remove a tooth. I did not experience insomnia or anxiety/panic attacks on that occasion.
  • Babesia and apergilus
    I was diagnosed 2014 with Babisia. For years after being in a river in BeliIze I was so sick with stuff coming out of my skin. Way back in 03' Dr sent sample away and it came back cellulose. No help for years. Now in 15' I've come up with Apergilus in my sinuses. For years I have sweated. No help. Now I've had sinus surgery. Just before surgery I all of a sudden have double vision. Unsteady on my feet. Surgery did not help. I think I have invasive Apergilus and no one so far is helping me. I believe the fungus originated possibly from tick bite in Belize or from water in river. Asoergilus being a fungus does have spirochetes which are cellulose. Whatever,
    I'm a mess with no help.
  • Diphenhydramine and mental acuity
    For at least 10 years, I have taken diphenhydramine 50 mg. at bedtime for insomnia and allergies. The results have been that I sleep well with no hangover or any cognitive impairment. If I experience vertigo from allergies, I may take an additional 50 mg. but never exceeding 100 mg in a 24 hour period.

    After reading the report regarding an Alzheimer's study finding that after taking as little as 4mg diphenhydramine daily for more than 3 years, dementia rates were high.

    I stopped the diphenhydramine one night. I experienced symptoms of deep brain pulsating pain and severe insomnia. After 4 hours, I took 50 mg diphenhydramine and slept very well. The next night I took 37.5 mg. diphenhydramine, slept very well. However, some of my tasks require layers of mental challenges in which I became slower.

    My question is how did the study recipients obtain 4 mg doses of diphenhydramine when the standard over-the-counter (OTC) availability in tablets is 25 mg? How reliable is the information submitted from the study subjects? What manufacturer's diphendramine was used, or were there several?

    I felt sharper mentally when on 50 mg daily than so far on 37.5 mg.
  • Prozac for children with pandas ocd
    No side effects, works wonders, taking for two years and weaning off.
  • The dangers off fluoridation
    I live in an area where the water has been fluoridated for approximately 55 years and have been treated for an underactive thyroid since 1978. I have also suffered from urge incontinence since 1967 and for 4 years have also had the symptoms of skeletal fluorosis although I have not been able to get the tests to confirm this. About 2 years ago I read about the dangers of fluoride and stopped using the tap water for drinking and cooking but still had to use it for bathing and still swam in the local pool. Also I have always drunk about 3 pints of tea a day. Recently it was found that there might be a problem with my kidneys so I stopped drinking tea and swimming. I had been going to the toilet 16/17 times a day but after about 5 weeks this was down to 7/8 times and the urgency was gone. Also I was given a follow up kidney function test after 6 weeks and that was normal. A few weeks later I was shopping in an area where the water is not fluoridated and risked having tea in a cafe there and the irritable bladder symptoms came back almost immediately and lasted for several weeks.
