Hi.

In general, doxycycline is the go-to drug to treat Lyme Disease, which causes a wide variety of psychiatric syndromes, including depression. However, doxycline also has some anti-inflammatory properties. Since brain inflammation is associated with depression, it might be the anti-inflammatory properties of doxycline that produce your improvements. If so, you might consider switching to monocycline. It is in the same family of antibiotics, but is supposed to have stronger anti-inflammatory properties than doxycycline. It works by suppressing the release of pro-inflammatory cytokines by glial cells.

I remained partially improved on monocycline for over a year. Unfortunately, at this point, I began to develop hyperpigmentation of the shins and feet. It looks similar to black and blue marks. The hyperpigmentation can disappear, but can persist for over a year after the discontinuation. Sometimes, it is irreversible. I can't produce statistics.
