I have a full bottle of Doxycline which was prescribed for last year's bronchitis. I took a couple of the pills then and got a strange itchy feeling in the back of my throat, so the doc prescribed another drug. I'm just wondering, is there a possibility that I can take this drug at the current time w/o a reaction?
Constant bouts of pneumonia and bronchitis as well as mystery hives and infections on even the smallest paper cut. After sinus surgery I developed a Pseudomonas aeruginosa infection that seems to have colonized in my sinus'. I have a great number of environmental allergies and have learned that I am allergic to Keflex and sulfa drugs/antibiotics.
I am a 39yr old female who is an allergic asthmatic, has had RSD/ CRPS for the past 14+ yrs, had JRA and have arthritis and Raynaud's Syndrome (and more)... In May I woke with a sore throat one morning and the next day I worke with a VERY HEAVY Chest and the beginning of more than 2 months of he!!
cough and painfully scratchy/dry throat for about 4 days, and then one day the throat pain went away, and the cough turned productive. Initially, the productiveness was CRAZY....cups full of phlegm ranging all sorts of colors/thickness depending on the day/time of day, etc. Day #17, and here I am....
I knew he just didn't want to go any further, because it was closing time. He diagnosed me with bronchitis, and prescribed me doxycycline 100 MG twice a day, along with an allergy med. and 600 MG Ibuprofen. I know that 90% of bronchitis cases are viral. He himself metioned that he didn't want to give my sick daughter an antibiotic for obvious reasons. So why would he give me 10 days worth for "acute bronchitis"?
It is now trying to move into my lungs(bronchitis). I have had 2 rounds of Levaquin, an injection of Rocephin and dexamethazone and it is STILL not clearing up. I hated to take those antibiotics in the first place. They are always a LAST LAST resort for me. Probiotics have been taken for the issue these cause, but does anyone know of anything else I can try that will work. I am supposed to go back to the dr tomorrow but I just don't want another round of antibiotics.

What are your actual thyroid hormone levels? Please post them, along with reference ranges, which vary lab to lab and have to come from your own report. You should be getting tested regularly for Free T3, Free T4 and TSH. Medications for any of the conditions you mentioned could cause you to be hungry all the time, though if you are adequately medicated for your thyroid condition, that should not be a factor. What thyroid medication are you currently on? What dosage?
Believe it or don't, but if you want a future you will get tested for Lyme and/or experiment with Doxycycline and see what happens!
I have built up a tolerance to Levequin, Zithromyacin, Amoxicillin, after 9 years of COPD and now have bronchitis. Any suggestions for other potential antibiotics or other ideas?
I was exposed to Chlamdyia on the 13th of October and then treated for bronchitis with a z-pack (500mg the first day, then an additional 250mg for four days) on the 22nd of October. Would this be effective against the chlamydia as well, or should I seek additional treatment? I can't afford the azithromycin again, so I'd have to use doxycycline if that were the case. I'm a 20 year old male and have absolutely no symptoms of chlamydia.
So I came in contact with Chlamydia, I have symptoms, but did not get tested because my partner got tested and she has it so I know I have it. I have 6 pills of Zithromax at home at 250mg each that were prescribed before for bronchitis. I understand that Zithromax is also used to treat Chlamydia. I also understand that it takes 1000mg to cure chlamydia (correct me if i'm wrong). My question is, do I take 4 pills (1000mg) all at once or should I take 1 a day, 2 a day.. what do i do?
I got sick of it so I went to the doctor who checked my ears and said that it did look sore in there and perhaps I had an infection so they prescribed a low dose of amoxicillin. I took about 1/3 of the dose and stopped because the symptoms went away. I didnt like the side effects (bad stomach) so I stopped taking it since the vibrating had stopped. The vibrating came back though after a few days, and it became a constant sense of vibrating.
I saw a hair growing out of the middle of it, and squeezed the bump. Because my bronchitis had gone away only to develop into a sinus infection, I was prescribed Doxy 100mg / 2x / day for five days, which I took religiously according to instructions. Now, 2 weeks after appearing, the bump is still there. Foolishly I keep squeezing it; on the days when I don't it shrinks with a (closed, not ulcerous head).
middle ear infections 2. tonsillitis 3. throat infections 4. laryngitis 5. bronchitis 6. pneumonia and 7. sinusitis This is very effective against certain transmitted infectious diseases, such as Chlamydia, non-gonococcal urethritis and cervicitis. Recent studies have also indicated it to be effective against late-onset asthma, but these findings are controversial and not widely accepted as of yet.
I Went to the doctor and i was treated for a yeast infection, with the 7 day vaginal cream, the doctor then said that i had a bacteria infection also.In March went the doctor for the same reason a bacterial infection which didn't get treat with the right meds So this time around they gave me a shot of penicillin and put me on doxycycline, because Ive had chlamydia in the past. So should i be worried once again that the infection is still present in my body?
back on january 31, 2008, i noticed discharge and burning and frequency to urinate. i went to the hospital, and was given doxycycline for 7 days. i tested negative for gonorrhea and chlamydia. the symptoms went away completely. that following week, i came down with some form of acute viral bronchitis(could that have anything to do with this?) i was out of work for a week(during this time, the tuesday is when i had unprotected sex for one last time with her).
about 3 days ago I started feeling some tingling in my penis and painful lymph nodes in my groin area.ive had 3 std test for chlamydia, gonner hea and tricimonis all came back negative but the pain is worse . could I had caught hiv from this episode. And what do I do now.
Recently I have had an acne-like rash on my face which was completely cleared up with Doxycycline. I have never had anything like this before and was wondering what could be causing it. Now, the whole long story: In June, just when getting over a cold, I came down with extreme fatigue, aches and night fevers and sweats. I went to my doctor who checked me for mononucueosis and found nothing. Not satisfied, I treid another doctor.
Ever since then, I have had chest pain, shortness of breath, fainting spells, weakness, back pain, a worseneing cough, low grade fever, chills, rash on my belly or chest, and nausea. The swollen lymph nodes have also returned. My doctor says I have bronchitis/walking pneumonia and put me on doxycycline on tuesday, but I am not feeling any better. I only have one day of antibiotics left.
Next, lungs are severely infected=Bronchitis now. Its been 14 days and I'm missing University classes and am worried. Short of breath, using inhalers that don't work.I've been on Apo-Sulfatrim 800/160 2 times daily and small lung improvement. New problem: Today,Left Lymph node under mandible swollen and tender, throat sore. Lungs hurt, but now in central chest, not in upper L and R lung as last week? I am allergic to: penicillin, Erc/ Zithromax, clydomyicin, anything penicllin related.
( Doc took urian and said well your not Dibetic but you have a URI. Put on Doxycycline and told it will get better. I was done with the meds this past weekend. Still spitting up a load of mucas clear in color but tast like dirt and my mouth is dry all the time and chaped lips and that is with a cool mist humidifier. And my pee is still a dark brown. And still have funny fealings in my head about middle Top. not a head ack or any thing just a funny like fealing.
Sometimes, after an infection is gone, the lymph nodes may stay the same size or reduce only slightly. I have had bronchitis on and off most of my life - and that alone can cause fatigue. Bronchitis causes an inflamation of the airways, making it difficult for oxygen to pass through. The decrease in oxygen and your bodies struggle to maintain a healthy level of it are the main causes of fatigue. If your still concerned, keep an eye on your lymph nodes.
I went back to the doctor on 9/13 and was told that I have bronchitis and to stop taking the doxycycline and prescribed the Zpack for 5 days as well as phenylephrine(decongestion). I have had diarrhea now for a week and has had so much anxiety of hiv that I took another HIV test on 9/14 and are waiting on the results. My questions are: 1. Why did I all of a sudden get bronchitis? 2. Should the medicine I'm taking cause diarrhea for 1 week? 3.
I also have a compromised immune system due to the fact that I've had pnemonia twice, bronchitis, and mono within a few years of each other. Because of this i've taken a lot of antibiotics and have been on tetracycline for my acne as well-which is a cause of Candida. And now I was just perscribed Doxycycline for my face but I'm scared to take it because what if I do have Candida? All of this just adds to the stress of my already stressful life. PLEASE HELP!
) I went in to see another doctor instead where I was prescribed doxycycline 100 mg for 7 days and given a shot of Ceftriaxone. Again, the symptoms went away for two days and returned. My questions are: * What would be the most appropriate course of action given that I now have two prescriptions? * What could this be if both tests came back negative? Could it still be chlamydia or gonorrhea?
from a 5am trip to the ER to stop a bloody nose, to getting prescribed Doxycycline for bronchitis and occasional fever.. general feeling like poop.. but the upside is the cough is diminishing, I am keeping vaseline in my nose (Minnesota in the winter is VERY dry) and my platelet count is up to 48K.. so continuing the 90mcg dose of interferon, and enjoying the prospect of counting down until the telepravir drops off! Keep the faith everyone and have a great week!
acute bronchitis. I ask this because after being diagnosed with acute bronchitis 5 weeks ago and having it for 3 weeks, my cough got MUCH MUCH better, but I still can hear/feel the "chest congestion" and purposefully cough to attempt to get rid of the phlegm in my lungs/chest.
I'm a 54 year old male and have had similar experience with both doxycycline and cipro. The first time I had a prostititis attack cipro didn't work and doxycycline helped me after 2 full weeks. 18 months later I'm having another bout, this time its the other way around - Doxycycline didn't help and cipro seems to be working after 2 weeks. Are you taking Flomax too? My prostititis problems seemed to start when I went on Flomax.
