While this "fix" appears positive, it is not without potential harm to the integrity of the whole person.
The alteration/loss of gut bacteria through use of this antibiotic is a very important negative side effect of this treatment. After one course of antibiotics, it can take years to reestablish gut biome integrity. This treatment, while perhaps enhancing glutamate activity in some way, effectively eliminates a person's ability to derive value from food (chemically-induced malnutrition) or absorb stress reducing B-Vitamins from the gut, while promoting gut inflammation and increased toxicity do to mal-digested food travelling through the gut. As do all antibiotics, loss of intestinal biome integrity also depletes a person's immune system even further. Depression and pain are directly associated with decreased immunity and biome imbalance, and these would also increase for the patient.
I'd recommend some consideration of how to maintain optimal nutrition and restore gut biome health for any patient in this study or future user.
