> I know this thread has been inactive for a decade but I just want to report anecdotally that Doxycycline has helped me immensely with depression symptoms. I discovered it on accident (I have a sinus infection.) Googling for answers is how I found this forum. It's even helped me with my existential OCD and anxiety; it feels like it softens the blow of dread. The one downside is insomnia, but it doesn't bother me for some reason. My family and friends have even noticed the positive change in my demeanor. I finally almost feel normal.

If you come.back and see this please followup as to whether or not youhad continued success or not.

I've been interested in the off label research if some of these antibiotics, but I'm always weary of any negatives they may lose to the gut microbiom that scientists find is more and more important. Perhaps that's how they provide benefits though.
