Minocycline isn't working like before anymore :(

i even upped my dose to 100 mg twice daily… taking a pro biotic with it i feel a very little effect from it but not major like it did before, sigh

I do not have positive symptoms from Vraylat 3 mg it is a great med for positive and energy a bit but not 100% effective for negative symptoms or depression?

I do NOT understand why minocycline doesn’t give it’s full potential on the negative symptoms this has become a very disabling condition for me for 20 years now,

CBD oil the first few days work but then nothing.

I really think this all sucks big time!!!

Any serious options for negative symptoms, and depression? djezus

I tried SSRI Paxil, Cipralexa, it gave energy but still felt sick.
All Anti psychotics modern, even clozapine for 6 months i slept like a baby for 6 months on that one… but felt terrible… its hopeless im 37 now and still no recovery anymore from the negatives sooooooo bad.

I gave up on fighting negative symptoms, I try to forget and live with them as much as I can.

Antibiotics are not known to treat negative symptoms.

I think he said he got sz from Lyme disease and antibiotics worked for his sz in the past. Maybe now the damage is too advanced to recover.

Hes been tested for lyme disease multiple times and the test always comes back negative.

Oh didnt know that, he told me he tested positive. Maybe he had it before and the damage is already too advanced.

Man, I spent half a year on them thanks to the wound that would not heal. I’d have been over the moon if I could wake up and feel like going for a walk without ten minutes of arguing with myself in my head. They made NO difference.

My sz I am sure is genetic in my case, never had a serious infection. Didnt use drugs, etc

My first Lyme Elysa test came back positive, these tests arent accurate i must admit but still…

I tried some herbal neuroborellia treatments with some results, but not strong enough to consider a cure or a remission of symptoms.

I will now shut up and go to sleep and @ninjastar may I ask do we know each other in real life, you seem to know lot about those negative lyme tests, and 1 positive standard test i have proof off.

None of the anti psychotics like clozapine worked for negative symptoms the drug companies claim its for treatment resistant schizophrenia it was awfull taking that

yet I am thankfull for been stable with Vraylar 3 mg for 6 months now, @Aziz its better then Abilify but you will need to adjust to it and 1,5 mg is not for psychosis, 3 mg and a few days later i had no positive symptoms :sunny:

I don’t have much hope of getting rid of my negative symptoms. Unless of course some of them are caused by AP’s and someday I am able to get off of them.

Only solution for negative symptoms is little bit of positive symptoms. I mean controlled positive symptoms. daily schedules, rituals is a kind of controlled positive symptom. This is why all the substances which tend to improve negative symptoms seem to worsen positive symptoms ex: stimulants, tapering medications etc.
