Infection, Antibiotics, Antidepressants and Mental Health

My docs suggested that a urinary tract infection was partly responsible for the psychotic break.  They said that it was possible the infection was interfering with the Effexor I was taking.  Or, the infection had somehow been running roughshod over my mental well being.  Whichever the case may be, I am being very cautious with the sinus infection that has been plaguing me for the past couple of weeks.  Tomorrow, I will start my second round of antibiotics.  Whatever bug is running around inside my head, hopefully this round will be its last.  I can’t help but think the little ups and downs that I’ve been experiencing over the past few weeks have had something to do with this.  Maybe and maybe not but whatever happens, I hope the infection gets knocked out just as soon as possible… and I hope I keep my sanity until this all gets wrapped up.
