Ozone and Prozac

Subject: Re: Ozone and Prozac

The postings about ozone therapy possibly increasing the "uptake" of prozac leads me to wonder: Is there something unique about prozac with ozone, or can ozone increase the uptake of ANY medicine? (For example other SSRI-type antidepressants such as zoloft, and/or oral antibiotics, for example).

This is very important information to know!

My chronically-ill-with-Lyme disease teen son (fatigue biggest problem) was helped by ozone at a doctor's office while taking these other meds; 17 autohemotherapy treatments. We haven't tried home ozone yet; afraid of too much herxing as he is now on IV antibiotics, oral plaquenil and zoloft, and uses a Rife machine (electromagnetic therapy). He'll be on the IV antibiotics at least a few more months; they have helped. After that, who knows.

I would love to wean him off zoloft within next year, hopefully, especially after reading the book "Prozac Backlash." (the 2 meds are very similar).

Thanks very much.

Dear Elaine,

There is no source of information on ozone reactions with drugs, unfortunately, so I just have to go with the information I have gleaned from various German doctors, or from experience.

We have seen some problems with Prozac and with Prednisone. Dr. Turska warned against ozone and aspirin.

With any possibilities of interaction, caution is the word. Since your son had autohemotherapy without a problem, probably other protocols will not be a problem.

If he is going to be on that amount of drugs, have him do acidophilus daily, and a liver cleanse every two weeks.

Best of health!
Dr. Saul Pressman
