Are prescription medications available for Morgellons disease?

Morgellon's disease is not widely recognized as a valid diagnosis by the medical community, so opinions on medications may vary widely between doctors. Right now no one knows the cause of Morgellon's disease, so it's difficult for doctors to prescribe a medication. However, some people are reporting that antibiotics help minimize some of the skin problems associated with Morgellon's disease. Your doctor may also want to prescribe psychiatric drugs, which can help with some of the behavioral changes that are common in people with Morgellon's disease. Talk to your doctor about your options for prescription medication for Morgellon's disease.
