My 10 y/o son had strep Nov 2012 and was diagnosed with Pandas in April 2013 after severe mood swings, depression, irritability and aggression started. He also has anxiety and Aspergers. Waiting for Lyme testing results. We treated with zith and penicillin for the pandas and also did a course of Flagyl for clostridia. Titers were at 1140...trending down but only at 1080 now. All of his symptoms are much better. The only tic he has is a vocal humming he makes when he watches tv or plays on the computer. Is that normal to have a tic only at a certain time? Dr suggested we try Augmentin but not sure I want to give him another antibiotic.

 

Also, dr started him on Diflucan since he's been on so many antibiotics. Can the Diflucan cause diarrhea?

The way our ped expained it, when the brain is distracted (in this case tv or computer) and lets its guard down, the tics come out. It's no uncommon for our ds to tic more when he's relaxing at home. Especially after spending the day holding tics in.

Augmentin would likely replace penicillin, not just be added in with the other two. Tics can come and go at almost any time. Such variances it is mind boggling to me.

Biberglund: don't forget to give probiotics to help avoid yeast issues. Search the topic and read more about probiotics. 2 basic things to remember are: give a few hours apart from antibiotics and don't use a brand with any strep----in the ingredients-(long word and can't remember the spelling, but starts with strep). Also may help with the diarrhea.
