Common Questions and Answers about Doxycycline side effects thrush

Hi guys, I am 95% sure I have penis thrush (I have been taking doxycycline for Malaria and took the incorrect, double, dose for the first week). I had red areas on my glands and under my fore skin and white peeling skin. I have been using an antiseptic cream as I cannot get to a pharmacy or the doctors. It has cleared up the peeling skin and red blotches but still there is intermittent itching and some occasional red bumps.
I'm a pretty happy person so can't be anxiety unless medicine side effects but I had some tingling prior. I feel like something is eating at my muscles and joints. Other than the common STD's have you ever seen this? My doc has done all types of random blood work testing (lyme, B12, etc) but all negative. This is why I come back to STD's since this exposure started everything and there are like 20 or so STD's.
2 Great that you say no harm to me or partner if I have NSU long term but does this extend to no harm to a baby if I were to get partner pregnant (I am hoping to have kids in a year or so)? 3 I have read Moxifloxacin side effects are v strong. Which course if any out of Doxy, Erythromycin, further Ofloxacin, Fluconazole or Azithro/Metronidizole sound worth trying? With any of these, does drinking alcohol make them less effective or only make the side effects worse?
Hi, The common side effects of Doxycycline include diarrhea, difficulty swallowing, inflammation of the tongue, loss of appetite, nausea, purple patches under the skin, sensitivity to sunlight, skin inflammation in the anal and genital areas and/or vomiting. Occasionally this antibiotic may upset the natural balance of micro-organisms in the body, allowing those that are not susceptible to doxycycline to overgrow and cause infection.
but I am very scared of what side effects I could catch from this one... 3.What side effects does Azitrox have? Does it affect the liver? Does it give tachycardia? Or Colitis of the bowel? What should I do ? 4. What is the dosage of Doxycycline and Azitrox in reactive arthritis caused by chlamydia? Is it the same with the dosage in uncomplicated Chlamydia infection ? Sorry for my bad english..Greetings and waiting for your reply ...
On the other hand, the medications he provided have side effects and you have described many of them. Both doxycycline and azithromycin are associated with the sorts of GI side effects you describe. Further, taking powerful antibiotics of this sort typically increase the risk for getting fungal infections such as thrush. The rashes you describe on your penis and foreskin could also very well be fungal infections as well and are VERY unlikely to be related to HIV.
That this occurred is between you and your doctor but when this happens it sometimes leads to other problems like drug side effects for instance. That said, you did receive broad spectrum antibiotics which would have been predicted to cure virtually all bacterial STDs so, even if it were possible to get STDs through kissing (I repeat, it is not), they would have been cured by the medication you took. With that as background, let's address your questions: 2..
If you are allergic to sulfa then you'll take doxycycline 100 mg bid, tapering down as above. Levaquin or Avelox are expensive quinolone drugs with dangerous side effects in some people. They are taken once a day. I usually take them for 7-10 days. They can be very effective where nothing else has worked. Avelox is not typically used for these types of infections and you may not be able to obtain it from your doctor due to prescribing restrictions.
You need to understand that for persons with no evidence of disease, one eventual consequence of continuing to take the same, unsupported complaints to doctor after doctor is that it makes it far more likely that you will ultimately find someone who gives you a medication which causes harmful side effects or does a procedure which can cause damaging side effects.
was before I got treated with 'doxycycline' [antibiotic] - I now take 'acidophilus' daily - regardless of any meds. [good bacteria] - I just take one high strength tablet. The bloody stools could be from the 'constipation' which goes with IBS. - you should always get 'bloody stools' checked - it is often from heamorroids [can't spell that!!] - I have found that the 'suppositries for heamorroids' are good - ie; stopped me from getting them - hey I know this is an embarrassing prob.
Look it up and always check out any supplement prior to taking as they have side effects as well and interact with what you are already taking. I have had so much success with both of these. I also get B12 shots monthly, for energy and to help combat the fatigue. I also added Iodine supplements several months ago. I cannot say enough about B12 and iodine supplements. And of course Vitamin D. You might have your MD or ND check your B12 and Vitamin D levels.
I agree that Vancomycin is an option instead of the metronidazole. Although Vancomycin also has it side effects. It is the next drug in line if you want to continue the drug route. It won't cause peripheral neuropathy. It is something to discuss. Yes a "friendly" yeast is a good addition to the probiotics. Since you are being treated right now with Nystatin. It may kill of the yeast for now but after the Nystatin is finished it will be a good addition. Some things to think about.
yes i have a spot i can touch in my throat that feels like it is connected to my ear when i touch it it stops the popping in my ear.coordination is the problem.taking nexium pepcid ac plus temazepan.
Ciprofloxacin and Doxycycline would clear out most bacteria from an infected throat. Ask your doctor to look and consider herpes simplex or aphthous ulcers.
The doctor looked at my throat and said that the tonsil seems OK. Because the antibiotic caused side effects, it was stopped. My left pinna is sometimes very sore. The neck muscles and the muscles around the ear are sore. The neck is sometimes so weak that it is shuddering. Now my elbows hurt, and the right knee is sore. Last night my leg muscles cramped very hard. The cramp did not stop until I took a warm shower. Now I am having tinnitus.
It is a sleep aid medicine that has had some users complaining of this side effect. Go to www.medicalnewstoday.com/youropinions and read some of the posted comments. I too am suffering with this annoying condition. I scrape, brush and gargle with Biotene. This regimen helps for about 3 to 4 hours but it always returns. I took Lunesta for a couple of times but not 2 nights in a row. Thats the only common thread I can see. Hope this helps.
For me it was white thrush on tongue, pruritus, pain in back of knee when I stopped Tx, continued Lyme symptoms which were unique to me. It was so long ago, I do not remember the specifics. I do not recommend doing my fasting, probiotic method very long if you are in ill health. It should be done with a Lyme doctor involved. Lyme doctors are open minded, and understand the effects of antibiotics. Other doctors are influenced by the anti lyme propaganda.
SO if you are using it and it is helping just beware that when the dermatologist prescribed it to my daughter to use on her eczema (this is when I learned the side effects) he explained to use it for two weeks and then stop for two weeks to avoid the bruising and thinning skin. I am in the middle of allergy testing, actually have a second panel tomorrow, to find out what is causing my severe allergies.
I have been treated for prostatitis with multiple two week cycles of doxycycline, (2) six week cycles of levaquin, (2) 30 day cycles of amiltrytilene and Utira-C with no effect. As a treatment for potential interstitial cystitis I've taken Elmiron for 2-3 months with no effect. I've tried three cortizone based creams. None of these has had any effect on the symptoms. I changed underwear style, laundry detergent and soap in case it was fabric or allergy related. No effect.
penicillin, diflucan,amoxicillan, erythromicin etc But certain types have certain side effects. The drugs weaken the tissue and cause the skin to rip and tear easily. For women, commonly around the vagina (labia majora). So, what to do??? and why don't the doctors know about it??? You have to keep the area dry, so it can heal, but sometimes bepanthen or paw paw ointment is good, so you can at least urinate without the sting.
It is now well recognised that low doses of oestrogen therapy, delivered locally in the vagina, can be effective (see box below) These treatments are effective and acceptable and unlike the conventional form of HRT, the effects are local therefore the risk of systemic side effects are reduced. Local oestrogen therapy Vaginal dryness, soreness, burning, vulval irritation and chafing can all respond well to local oestrogen treatments.
in fact, it made it worse. I despise all this medication because of all the long term side effects and build up in the body. It was discovered in 2003 that my daughter had low pneumoccal and strep antibodies although she's never had either. She gets bouts of sinusitis a couple of times a year. The immunologist ordered a protocol of 2 flu shots and a pneumonia shot per year to boost the antibodies. The first year, it worked well and she didn't get sick ; however, the antibodies didn't rise.
I think that you have answered some of the reasons why you feel weak and shaky - Lack of Sleep - and you are over exhausted. I am no different in that respect. I go to bed about 1 or 2am, can't sleep, come down, go on the computer or decorate my cakes (made two this week with octonaut figures made out of fondant for one, so ended up going to bed a 7am).
No difference yet but I'll continue this for a while as long as there are no adverse side effects. I went in there to try slippery elm but she told me this might help more and the slippery elm tincture I wanted to purchase had alcohol in it that might irritate my esophagus. And I didn't want to take more pills (the slippery elm pills that is) because I am swallowing enough pills and it is not comfortable. Please let me know how you are doing Elizabeth and I will do the same.
They are in the opening area of the vaginal on the mucus membrane part. One side is worse than the other. They dont always hurt. But if my sugar intake is high I find that is when they are at there worst. They do not bother me at all until they are aggrevated by sex and dryness. And not that much friction in the sex, I might add. He knows better by now. Please let me know if your last surgery works.
He doesn't want to put me on antispasmodics because of the intense side effects I get (dry mouth leading to thrush, dry eyes, migraines). He eluded to a connection between colitis and rheumatic diseases. I'm assuming he meant some type of autoimmune response, given I have lupus and possibly the beginnings of Sjogrens. Meanwhile, the diarrhea, nausea, pain, "full" sensation, "lump in throat", cough, and weight loss continue.
