Will Doxycycline Hyclate help my sore throat? My doctor prescribed it for me for a sinus infection, and I mentioned to her that my throat also hurt. But after researching this medication, it specifies upper respiratory infections, but doesn't just say sore throat.
I went to the emergency room, when they found the bronchitis after a chest x-ray, and prescribed Prednizone for the inflammation and Doxycycline Halcate for the infection. I couldn't finish the antibiotic, due to even worse of an upset stomach reaction, but continued on the prednizone, though I was starting to have neurological symptoms on that, albeit mildly (anxiety, paranoia, shaking, hallucinations, irritability).
I assume you actually do have a bacterial and not a viral infection. I'm no doc, but it's odd for a bacterial infection to move from sinus to ear to the lung -- more common for viruses to move around like that. But what do I know. Generally, sinus and ear infections will clear by themselves if left alone, and can be treated with natural antibiotics or just good old salt water, but sometimes an infection is just too strong and that's what antibiotics are for.
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. It has gotten to the point that I can only take a Zpack, amoxicallan or doxycycline with the doxycicline as the last resort drug when the other 2 have failed (I typically have to take 2 or 3 courses to "cure" an infection.
It is working very well, I am clear for 90% of the time. However, I currently have a sinus infection and my family doctor has given me a course of Clarithromycin. I forgot to tell her that I am taking Bymycin for my acne. I really do not want to stop taking the Bymycin (doxy) because it will risk a breakout of acne. Can I take both antibiotics at the same time or is it dangerous? Thank you.
Is it ok doxycycline for sinus infection if I take toprol for high blood pressure
I've taken Bactrim for yrs. for sinus infections, being that I'm allergic to many other antibiotics. However, I've never take Doxycycline. So, could it of been the Doxycycline or Bactrim that raised my level's? and if so, why did the ALT elevated on 7/11 and 7/19 bloodtest results? Thank you for your assistance!
I am prescribed xanax for anxiety (recently for anxiety and panic attacks) and I got doxycycline hyclate for a sinus infection yesterday from a small clinic. I completely forgot to ask if there was an interaction between these two drugs. I may not even have to take the xanax, only if I have a panic attack will I. Does anyone know if there is an interaction between these two?
This is an antibiotic for a sinus infection. There isn't anything on the directions. Please advise.

I have suffered from chronic (and at times acute) sinus infections for over 15 years. I have had pseudomonas, MRSA, and enterobacter, as well as strep and other staph and even penicillium fungi. All were cultured from my sinuses. I've had 2 surgeries, and voila, the infections return. My entire body has now been affected (and I am unable to work). I have had 7 central IV lines for IV antibiotics, and am on antibiotics nearly every day.

Medications Fortunately, when I had encounter I was on azithromycin for my sinus problem since last 5-6 days (1gm a day). I don’t know whether it protected me form transmitting any disease from that girl or not. Below prescriptions I followed from doctor, as meatus not turning pink and pain, irritation still exists, sometimes itching in anus too. Dec’2013.: from 31st Dec- to Jan 6th – majorly on Augmentin (2g per day) Jan 7th : had single dose – azithromycin + IV Ceftriaxone.
I haven't had a reaction to medicine for clearing up a sinus infection, but I definitely have had anxiety while having a sinus infection. I believe it s due to some of the symptoms with difficulty breathing, etc. Some of the symptoms mimic anxiety so your brain can get tricked then you over analyze your symptoms and it brings out some anxiety. The steroids could definitely be causing some extra anxiety as well.
I wasted 5 years of sinus infection treatments prescribed by a primary care physician, when I should have seen an ENT even to diagnose me with a sinus infection. I would rather for my ENT to tell me that I have a sinus infection, than my primary care physician. The sinus problems we are experiencing is CRITICAL to our overall health. DO NOT ignore the signs. See a specialist immediately, so you can be on your road to recovery.
I was given this antibiotic cuz i had broncitis and sinus infection. It was 100 mg, 2 times a day for 10 days. Yesterday was my last day. This morning I woke up to intense vertigo, the room was spinning. I would get real tired and dizzy an hour or so after taking the med each time, but nothing like this, I almost fell over a few times. Has anyone felt any side effects after finishing a regimen of this? Do I have to wait for it to get out of my system?
Hi.  I definitely have allergies (cats/ragweed) and asthma.  Two years ago in August, I was sick, vomiting I was so ill.  Twice, two weeks apart.  From that point on fatigue never left me.  Several months later, in February, I came down with a horrible upper respiratory infection at the same time I was exposed to a huge dose of animal protein and a very unsanitary condition filled with unimaginable filth.  I've never lost my voice before, but this time, I could hardly squeak out a word.
I went to the doctors because I have had really bad throbbing pains in my face ears and above my eyes,he said I had sinus infection and gave me doxycycline tablets to take over seven days,are these safe to take,as I hates taking tablets and the leaflet states that they are for stds and malaria,I suffer with anxiety and this is causing me to panic more
Get a urine examination as well as urine culture test done to rule out any UTI or urethritis. Also get repeat tests done to check for any persistent Chlamydia infection or for recurrent Chlmydia infection as it may be presenting silently without any symptoms. Lastly get your vitamin D levels, a complete hemogram and your thyroid profile test done for dizziness and mental tiredness and fatigue. E.
The usual abx prescriptions for sinus infections, et.al. won't cure Lyme. Unless you had high dose Doxycycline, Amoxicillin, or other Lyme killing drug for several weeks early in the disease, then you still have it. It is rare for a person's immune system to clear the bacteria by itself. As you've had otherwise unexplained symptoms over the years, it does sound like you've got a robust immune system that has held the Lyme to a mild case all these years.
I was otherwise a healthy person of 44 years until this summer, sure enough I was positive! I went on Doxycycline immediately for one month, and am still on ceftin for almost another month. I am vitrually headache free. I have had fatigue though while on antibiotics that was not present before and mild numbness of extremities. I dont know if that is medicine or lyme but I have religiously taken my medicine and have made a lot of progress.
Hi I have been dealing with a sinus infection and post nasel for about 2 1/2 weeks. And my doctor has put me on 2 different antibiotics first it was Doxycycline with Mucenex and it didnt do anything for me so I went to back to the dr for a 2nd time and he told me to do steam showers and Sudafed which Im still doing, all along Ive had this lump feeling in my throat and "tingling" ( like rice krispies) in the back of my throat at first it was with any movement of my head or walking.
If it is a urinary tract infection it probably doesn't matter to wait but it may be uncomfortable for you for a few days so that is my opinion on it. If you have a fever you may be getting the dizziness and tiredness from that and/or fighting off the infection and/or from the antibiotics. Some species of E. coli and E. faecalis can be resistant too but usually they can find antibiotics to treat both of these at this point.
A blood count and blood cultures can be considered to look for infection and sepsis. If there is tissue damage, a creatinine kinase level can be obtained. Regarding the pain, I would obtain the consultation of a pain management specialist or physiatrist (rehabiliation MD) to help manage your symptoms. Procedures like trigger point injections may help with the chronic muscle and joint pain you are having. These options can be discussed with your personal physician.
lol caught a nasty sinus cold lasted for about a week then I got it. Now for me it took two weeks to get rid of it. I went for a drive 2 weeks ago to a lookout and while I was driving up the hill my ears did not pop like they do every time...Then felt me ear and I was like there was a liquid it there..Left it for a couple days before going to see my Dr. He said that there is some fluid in my left ear and no infection.
It seemed that the whole thing started as a sinus infection but then I went for a CT scan of sinuses and they were clear. I have been having symptoms of dizziness, head pain, shakiness and a spaced out kind of foggy feeling like i am watching my life from the outside - all day every day. There are some times for a couple of hours during the day that the symptoms may lift and give me a few moments to live- but not much.
I have been tolerating a bad ear infection for many months now. And believe it to have originated about over a year ago. At the time I was completely unaware since I cant see into my own ear to notice whether it was red even back then, but i certainly remember having lighter yet similiar symptoms as I do now. Alot of these symtoms seem to involve a throbbing sensation of the jaw and temple region as well as severe migraines from time to time.
