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.
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!
