Common Questions and Answers about Dose of doxycycline for uti


Avatar m tn That is exactly what I did. I ended up having sex 4 to 5 hours after I took my last dose of doxycycline on day 7. Did I put my partner at risk by having sex so soon after treatment? Also, I took 13 out of the 14 pills. (I choked one of the pills back up and spit it out). Would that have an impact on the meds efficacy?
Avatar f tn I, however, am a worrier when it comes to sexual health, and took myself along to a local GUM clinic, 3 days after the encounter, was tested, (came back negative) and also received two tablets (I am unsure what these were) to treat gonorrhea just in case, and also 7 days worth of doxycycline. My first question would be is 3 days long enough to get an accurate reading? And also, if I did indeed briefly have these two infections, would I now be clear of them?
Avatar m tn The doctor treated treated me for everything that day because it would be several days before the results were in. Doxycycline 100mg for 7 days in case it was chlamydia or gonorrhea and a shot in the rump of something in case it was syphilis. I did tell her that I had taken an antibiotic and she acknowledged it. took 7 days to get the results back and everything was negative! YEAH!!!! I felt fine. 6 days after I finished the script symptoms started returning.
Avatar m tn No Problems but regular Std check a few weeks later reveals NSU, check was done via swab into urethra. Treatment high dose doxycycline and two other anti biotics that I can't remember the name, pain in urethra develops and get worse and worse as time progresses and pain in head of penis. During this time and after I abstain from sex and masturbation. I notice that pain is particularly bad after long car journeys.
Avatar n tn (cystitis = bladder infection) was a common term for UTI in newly sexually active women. It's not an STD, i.e. your partner isn't catching UTI bacteria from you. Instead, she is colonized in her vagina with UTI bacteria, which are "massaged" into the urinary opening during sex. Other things can influence it. For example, some strains of E. coli (which we all have) are more prone to colonize the vagina and cause UTI than other strains.
Avatar m tn Or a yeast infection that's been persisting so it needs more than one dose of fluconazole to be cured? My derm said accutane kind of prohibits yeast from growing, so I'm thinking it could have stayed very mild while on the accutane & gotten worse when off the accutane because of that. Any thoughts?
Avatar m tn He then prescribed me 250mg of azithromycine once daily for 6 days, as well as rifamycine for my eyes (4 times daily for 7 days). I am not happy with his diagnosis. A doctor friend advised me to take double the dose for 3 days for gonorrhea. Do I take this prescribed dose (not effective for possible gonorrhea) or do I wait and see another specialist? Very confused.
Avatar f tn I have taking a single dose of azithromycin and that did nothing. I am currently on my 3rd day of 100mg doxycycline 2x per day and show no signs of my symptoms getting better. I have seen my general practitioner twice in the last 2 weeks and he seems stumped. Any advice on what type of specialist I should see, what remedy I should try, or what you think this could be?
Avatar f tn Hello I had a similar problem to yours. I'm 21 and I constantly feel llike I have all the UTI symptoms and feel discomfort when I have to pee , or have a burning sensation and I notice that when I eat really unhealthy it becomes more common. I hate going to the Doctors constantly to get antibiotics because the more you use them the less effective they are and also I've read and heard that taking antibiotics constantly can cause liver problems.
Avatar m tn The urine culture will tell what's going on. If it is positive for one of the bacteria that typically cause UTI, that's the diagnosis. If negative, it will support NGU as the correct diagnosis. If you have a UTI, sulfa-trimethoprim (Bactrim and other trade names) is a good choice for treatment -- so in that respect your doctor's advice was fine. If it's NGU, then azithromycin or doxycycline.
Avatar n tn Or if he used a condom that was too small this can also cause that type of symptom (but I have never had that issue for 5 days) Sometimes after a good round of oral play guys can have an episode of UTI do to bacteria within the females saliva. No the bacteria does not necessarily have to be gonera (SP) or chlamydia to cause a UTI. Sadly if it is gonerea or chlamydia, that means he has been exposed to it through other sources.
Avatar m tn I was given Agumentin for 3 days which certainly helped which confirmed that i have STD not the UTI. Later I was given single dose of 1 gm ceftriaxone and 100 mg doxycycline. Although it gave me massive stomach upset and and caused me to have hemorroids and fissures, I completed the course. which did not give me 100% relief. I went to see the doctor again and I was on 2 gm ceftriaxone IV for three days. which certainly did not work. i still had all the symptoms.
Avatar f tn Hi there, I have recently been prescribed 80 mg of Solodyn (minocycline) daily for acne. Before switching to solodyn, I was on a daily dose (awful I can't remember the exact milligrams) of doryx (doxycycline). I have only had 3 sex partners.. However my last one was, as much as I am embarrassed to say, someone I didn't know very well. We had unprotected sex, and he did not ejaculate inside of me. I am prone to UTIs, and felt a couple days after that I most definitely had one.
Avatar n tn Your doc might or might not have done that. In any case, doxycycline is one of the drugs of choice for NGU, so if that's what you have (which I tend to doubt), you will be adequately treated for it. So this really isn't a worry at this point.
Avatar m tn However, I have symptome of chronic prostatitis, but doctors are not seeing any actual infections, and told me I should not be on AB. Initially I had doxy for 3 weeks, but the UTI just came back after 2 weeks. I think a lot of people are as desperate as I am. Can more people share their experience or methods to alleviate the symptoms?
Avatar f tn My doctor put me on dixy 100 mg for 21 days and I don't feel like this is a high enough dose. I have asthma and it has been a lot worse since I got this Lyme, I have had confusion, lethargy, weakness, fatigue, cough, nausea/vomiting, neck stiffness and cracking, joints hurt, diarrhea.
Avatar m tn If symptoms suggest recurrent or persistent urethritis, the CDC recommends treatment with 2 g metronidazole (Flagyl) orally in a single dose plus 500 mg erythromycin base orally four times per day for seven days, or 800 mg erythromycin ethylsuccinate orally four times per day for seven days. This recommendation is to provide treatment for other bacterial causes of urethritis." Source:http:// w w
Avatar m tn He tested for any UTI infection but it was clear. Gave me a single dose Cifixme 400mg and a 7 day course of Doxycycline. By the following Friday I still had the burning sensation so I went to a second doctor. He gave me the same medication ( Cifixme & Doxycycline) plus a 7 day course of Flagyl. It is now more than a week later and I still have slight burning sensation. I must mention the burn is more afterwards than during urination and I still have no discharge.
Avatar f tn constant white, sour smelling vaginal discharge, pain with insertion. Back in January of 09, I had a severe UTI. It was the first one I ever had and I took about a week to get to the doctor because I didn't know what was going on . He said my urine was the worst he had seen in a while. Anyway, all they did was dip a test strip into the urine. I was put on Cipro for 5-7 days. I went back at the end of the 7 days because I had developed a vaginal discharge.
Avatar n tn 2 (Blood test) o Tested negative for UTI/NGU based on a White Blood Cell count of 1 (Swab) o Diagnosed with epididymitis in right testicle June 25 Pain in bladder, ex-ray taken of pelvis, a white area was noted on left area of bladder, considered un-remarkable by the physician. Given 2 more weeks supply of erythromycin, instructed to take them if needed.
Avatar m tn When i first noticed these signs i thought they may be STI related as a month or two before i had tested positive for chlamydia but completed a 7 day dose of doxycycline. When i saw my GP he took a urine sample and completed a test in the office but said there doesn't seem to be any infections but has sent it off to the lab for testing. I completed the nitrofuratoin tablets about 3 days ago, cloudy and smelly urine has gone but im needing to go to toilet about 2-3 times every hour.
Avatar n tn That would normally be doxycycline 100 mg twice daily for 7 days, plus a single 2 gram dose of metronidazole (Flagyl) or tinidazole (Tindamax). As for "still can’t seem rule out HSV-2 given the risk I took", you misunderstand the risks. Herpes remains unlikely. You had only a single exposure to an infected person.
Avatar f tn I visited an urgent care center a month ago, and was diagnosed with Bacterial Vaginitis & a UTI. I was given Macrobid & Clindamycin. Finished treatment with those, and I still had some burning after urination, not really during, but afterwards. It was a very uncomfortable heated sensation that I couldn't really pinpoint. So I saw my regular doctor, not an ob/gyn.
Avatar n tn However as i am still feeling symptoms (intermittent clear penile discharge and penile tenderness), my GP prescribed me a 1g dose of azithromycin and a 2g dose of Tinidazole. This on top of the antibiotics that i have previously taken such as doxycycline, keflex and noroxin should well and truly cover any undiagnosed infection. Is that correct? I did have a positive ANA test (Titre: 640 Homogenous) on two occasions so i do wonder if its a autoimmune problem causing my symptoms.
Avatar m tn They tested me for everything to include HSV and they gave me a oral dose azithromycin 1G and a shot of ceftriaxone 250mg just for peace of mind if it was bacterial. Within 7 days of exposure I had developed a very small open sore where the redness had been and it healed within a week, I showed the doc and she said it looked bacterial but did not take a swab and to let the antibiotics I took work their magic. Even though there was no sore my penis skin still felt very irritated constantly.
Avatar m tn By day 18, the pain still seemed to be subsiding, but for the first time, there were a couple of drops of blood that came out after I urinated. I went back to the doctor. This time they took a urine sample and ran a WBC and nitrite count. Both counts were normal. They sent it to the lab just for a general bacterial culture. This too came back negative. They prescribed me 10 days of Cipro (500 mg twice a day). The next day, the symptoms had gone down tremendously.
Avatar m tn So to make a long story short, I've been on Doxycline for a month and 2 days now, and much of the pain has left.. for example, main lingering pain in testicles and penis, groin and fulness in prostrate but i have since had a few UTI's (mild), burning while urination, mainly at night and early mornings, and slight achy pain in testicles and penis only after masterbating.
Avatar n tn these include Azithromycin 1 g single dose, or doxycycline 100 mg twice daily for 7 days, or levofloxacin 500 mg once daily for 7 days, etc. All these regimens are administered orally. As Chlamydia is a STD, it requires treatment of both partners for effective eradication of infection. Abstinence from sexual intercourse is advised during the course of treatment, but condoms should be used if the infected individuals intend to have sexual intercourse. Do keep us posted on your doubts.
Avatar f tn Over the next few days the pain persisted and I ended up going to the hospital in which they diagnosed me as having a UTI, gave me a dose of painkillers and a general UTI antibiotic and told me to stop taking the doxycycline. After that the symptoms seem to clear up. A week or so later the doctor I saw when I first had symptoms requested me to come and see her, she informed me I had Ureaplasma and prescribed me the doxycycline again.
