Doxycycline and vitamin d

Common Questions and Answers about Doxycycline and vitamin d


Avatar m tn Anyways, he prescribed me Doxycycline (200mg/day) for a week. I'm on the sixth day and the irritation AFTER urinating seems to be coming back. It's a fullness sensation that is very uncomfortable. It has markedly IMPROVED over where it was a week ago, but it seems to be coming back the last two days. Here is the gist: How effective is Doxycycline on NSU and how soon should I be "cured"? I am I just worrying? Will a week of Doxycycline be enough to nip this NSU in the bud?
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with MRSA about 6 months ago, and underwent a barage of antibiotic treatments. Doxycycline, 10 days, Septra DS,2 tabs twice daily 10 day, Levoquin 750 mg 10 days. I am concerned that this insult to my system may be the cause of my deficience. Living near the ocean , I do spend lots of time in the outdoors. My home life also encourages outdoor living. I take very few medications, eat well and take vitamins and minerals. I am infrequently sick. Last time was 3 years ago.
Avatar f tn I also had low vitamin D with Lyme and then low B12 and hypothyroid all from the Lyme. I also take 2000 per day vitamin D as a supplement.
Avatar f tn The extra hydroxylation in Carbon 1 is what makes Vitamin D bond to the Vitamin D receptor, and activate it. Saying 25(OH)D3 is just a shorter way of saying 25-hydroxycholecalciferol, and 1,25(OH)2D3 is a shorter way of saying 1-alpha,25-dihydroxycholecalciferol. In US measurements 25(OH) is measured in nanograms(ng)/milliliter(ml), and 1,25(OH)2 is measured in picograms(pg)/milliliter(ml).
554044 tn?1215318291 I actually run the MS-Diet Support Group Telephone Helpline and I can answer any questions on the role of diet and vitamin D in the treatment and prevention of MS but this one really threw me. I promised Jenny that I would find out as much as I could and call her back by Tuesday 28th Oct. She is such a lovely lady to speak to and it seems like her GP and Neuro are being as awkward as possible. She was the one who suggested the 500mg doze and she seemed .
Avatar m tn keep asking questions and thinking over all that has gone on and is going on, and modify your approach as more data comes in. Doxycycline is said to be effective, but only almost immediately after the infection ... and so many of us never know when we were infected. This knee-jerk response by too many MDs is a problem. That your daughter is also having GI problems is something one would hope the MD would take into account and not just let it go on.
4939681 tn?1361302899 Vitamin D (2000) B12 (1500) Iron 65 and vitamin c 125 Tramadol (for pain 50 mg at night) Expectorant (guaifenesin 400) Olive oil/ lemon juice mix ( morning) Naturethroid 65 mg Doxycycline 100 mg twice daily after meals (low calcium diet as my blood calcium has been high for a year now) Thanks in advance!
458072 tn?1291418786 I did the antibiotic nasal rinses for 30 days, took lots of probiotics, lots of vitamin D, vitamin C and some oregano oil. ( my ideas ) It worked, but it took time.....You just want to feel better now!! Note: I eventually had sinus surgery from repeated infections and now when I feel an infection coming on I do all the natural things listed above and I can usually fight them off without antibiotics!!
Avatar m tn 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 would say given your age and we all have stress you should do anything you can to keep your adrenals healthy. It could all be a combination of what is going on with you. I hope this helps a little. Best to you.
Avatar f tn I have constant grinding, popping, and cracking sounds in my joints all over my body, especially in my neck, very badly in my shoulders, my back, jaw, elbows, wrists, knees and hips. It does not usually hurt but my muscles and joints hurt and seem to be tense, weak and stiff. Can anxiety cause all of these CONSTANT symptoms? This problem is effecting my life and my relationships and I just want to feel normal and like my old self again.
Avatar n tn ive gone to all kinds of specialists (rheumatologists, endocrinologists, gynecologists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, multiple sclerosis specialists etc) and all i can get for the past 4 years is a diagnosis of fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, vitamin b and d deficiencies, and "well, something is going wrong with you, but i dont know what. go see a ___________" (and its usually an endocrinologist or gynecologist). im so frustrated at this point.
Avatar f tn I jhad an autoimmune component to my lyme disease, my son doesn't. The best way to get the autoimmune problem under control is by taking vitamin D, my son is on 1,000 iu daily and I am on 2,000. My son is 7, that is the standard kids dose. I'd get your son on that right away. You must absolutely refuse to allow him to be given any steroids ever again, they are terribly harmful for people with lyme disease as they suppress the immune system.
4939681 tn?1361302899 My LLMD never went over my schedule for meds and supplements and since I have a lot of difficulty with thinking/concentrating, I was wondering if any of you could please review the schedule that I have come up with and advise: Before breakfast: lemon, olive oil, and water mixture After breakfast: ensure meal supplement for weight gain probiotic burbur detox After lunch: doxy 100 (1 hour later) magnesium (1 tsp) burbur detox vit.
Avatar n tn I also have CFS and I'm on a research study called the Marshall Protocol and that is why I mentioned the vitamin D labs. To be a candidate for the MP, you must have vitamin D dysregulation, which is an indicator of Th1 inflammation and cell wall deficiency. There are some treatments for CFS --- the research protocol I'm on (you can do a search and find their website) and also Dr. Paul Cheney has a treatment for CFS online.
Avatar f tn I've also been told that my body is failing to absorb magnesium, iron, vitamin D and zinc. I currently take Magnesium citrate, iron, vitamin D and zinc everyday. I live in Massachusetts. I've seen at least 15 different doctors before anyone started suspecting that I may have Lyme disease. I started seeing my current doctor relatively recently. I don't know if he's a Lyme specialist, but he is an integrative medicine doctor. JackieCalifornia, you said that your treatment lasted a year.
Avatar n tn For the past year, I have been experiencing burning and stinging in my vulva (which is NOT made worse by peeing), which comes and goes but can last for over a month and is extremely uncomfortable. The area looks normal, and there is no unusual discharge. The last time I had these symptoms was in March - they came on suddenly with a stinging sensation, and lasted for 6 weeks.
Avatar n tn 2 Vitamin K1, 3 Prednisone 20mg, 1 1/4 Doxycycline 100mg I stick her pills in some a/d and she seems to do much better for several hours after I make her take the medicine. She won't eat it on her own, I have to very carefully put it down her throat. She is really,really weak though. I have been keeping water and chicken broth soaked Neutro Senior kibble (I've tried several other things, that was the last thing she actually ate) next to her at all times.
Avatar n tn I have been checked out by Neuro, ENT and GP and NOTHING. I'm wondering if I have TMJ but I don't know. Here are my symptoms... Right ear pain Right ear fullness/ringing Pain behind right eye spot headaches on right side grinding teeth at night stiff neck - going into my shoulders I had an MRI/MRA back in Oct and all it showed was chronic sinusitis which I am being treated for by my ENT however he knows the pain is not coming from my ear. I am worried. Could this be an aneursym?
Avatar n tn also if i want to have sex, to prevent irritation, i'm supposed to put some vitamin A and D ointment on the spot, as a barrier, and also use lubrication (astroglide is good, ky is no good because it drys out quickly) i cannot stress the importance of lube enough!! my gyn has had a lot of success with this treatment and hopes that in 6 weeks i should finally be healed. i'll post an update soon. extra advice: if your gyn is not helping, get a new one!!
Avatar f tn HPTH a tumor on my parathyroid gland wreaking havoc on my body...every affected. Ask for Vitamin D test, Calcium levels, and PTH...(parathyroid hormone)....this will tell the story...I do NOT believe in FIBROMYALGIA as a valid diagnosis that anyone should ever have to live with after my struggles with being MISDIAGNOSED> My levels now: Calcium 10.4, PTH 97, hypercalceimia, low vit. D (only 11), to top it off I have a cancerous looking nodule on my thyroid seen on ultrasound.
Avatar f tn I have read that taking Vit D and magnesium at the same time doesn't work, because the Vit D blocks the body's ability to absorb the magnesium, so I take most of my vits and supps all at the same time (each morning and evening), but take the Vit D or magnesium an hour after all the other vits and supps to avoid the conflict. Sounds complicated, but once you have list and a routine set up, it's pretty easy.
755322 tn?1330272714 because it is needed with calcium and mag gly is not one that causes the trots. ;) Also I take CoQ10, EPA-DHA and Vit D. Has anyone found Vit D makes them feel worse? It does me, but I try to keep my levels at optimum level since it cannot hurt in the long run. Sorry bad weekend, I am rambling... Y'all enjoy the rest of Sunday. I am loving this forum. I feel like I am home. :) If I can just take the plunge and find a Doctor who is LL. Maybe tomorrow.
298579 tn?1192250448 You have no idea how glad I am I Finally figured out what exactly to google! I am 35 I have had the exact same thing for 5 years. 6 doctors, no sex (whats the point of crying and making him feel bad?) and waking up in my sleep. I am so tired of it all. I just started physical therapy but I am so much more leaning towards the partial. I don't want kids. but they won't do it, because i might change my mind. Trust me I have thought about this for a long 5 years and i am good with my decision.
Avatar n tn Low Thyroid Function could affect any function in the body, including endolymphatic hydrops absorption and myriads of other biological brain processes The low Vitamin D level is a concern. Consider taking 5000 IU of D3 daily along with Magnesium (Mg Chloride oral or transdermal are excellent choices ) AND Vit. K2, will ensure proper absorption and , provided they're taken with food containing fat. K2 and D3 are both fat-soluble.
Avatar n tn Have you tried stopping these drinks to see if the infections lessen? Have any of you tried D-Mannose and has this made a difference?
480448 tn?1426952138 or was watching the world through a movie projector, instead of through my own eyes and mind. Therefore, I am going to share with you all what *I* know about these phenomena, and hopefully reassure some of you that this is par for the anxiety while irritating, maybe even is totally harmless. Derealization and depersonalization are two terms that are sometimes used interchangably. Truth is, they DO vary a little bit in their presentation....
Avatar f tn Doxycycline 100MG cap twice daily Vitamin D Pharma VIT D2 1.25 MG 50 4 weeks.
3054080 tn?1358726456 I already take a women's multivitamin, Vitamin D and Calcium, Potassium, and Glucosamine and Chondroitin, and Omega 3. Well, I didn't do so hot with the Romberg test. There were several variations and we tried a couple of them and I wobbled pretty bad, didn't fall through. I have a feeling I'm in for a long ride. I guess I will just take it as it comes, which is what I've been doing anyway.
Avatar n tn I went to dermatologists, explaining the problem, but there was never any solution. Recently, my physician discovered that I am severely deficient in vitamin D. I was prescribed a supplement for other reasons, and now I have noticed that the scrotal/penis stickiness is gone. I hope this will help any man experiencing the problem as I know how isolating the problem can be. I went through times when I thought I would never be with a woman again. All the best.
