Great. Tomorrow you'll be taking 12.5mg Lamictal at 6 p.m. Then hold at that schedule for a week and track your symptom pattern.

 

How is it you are waking up on the couch around 3 a.m.?

You may have a range of reactions to an antibiotic but it's better than having a bad infection.

Hi Allreadygone, 

 

I was so sorry to hear you got poison oak poisoning n have an infection. That must be awful. I don’t think I’ve ever seen poison oak, not sure if we have it in Australia, I must google it. 

 

You seem to have no choice but to take the antibiotics but as Alto said it’s better than having a severe infection because the stress of that will probably make withdrawals worse anyway n you’ll also end up with extra health problems. We try n stay away from antibiotics as much as we can but there are times we just can’t.

 

If you get waves from the antibiotics just know they will eventually subside. Any time our bodies have any extra stress put on them from different things we always eventually stabilise again. It’s just a matter of when. 

 

Hope you recover from the poison ivy soon. 

 

Sending hugs🤗

Good idea. Looks like you're stabilizing finally.
