Common Questions and Answers about How long is doxycycline in your system


Avatar n tn feeling has been getting less noticable but is still there (one week now). Do you know how long this can take before it disappears? I understand that you might not be able to answer these questions from a distance. Grateful for a response anyway. (sorry for the language, english is not my native language).
Avatar f tn Everyone has different experiences with meds so you will not get the same effect. You can get a better idea of your situation if you ask your pharmacist or the person who prescribed it, since they have the background.
Avatar m tn I finished the course of Doxycycline two months ago. How long could the bloating, etc. take to go away? Thank you in advance for any assistance and information.
Avatar n tn MedHelp is working on it, but till it's fixed, there is a character limit per message of 1000 characters -- but I never know when I hit that number, so I just keep typing, and when I hit 'post a comment' and get that 'failed to post screen', then hit the back arrow, and you will return to this page, where your typed text is still in place.
Avatar f tn Bacteria might still be in your system. It is recommended to wait 30 days to retest.
Avatar f tn I totally agree with all your comments above. Let us know how we can help. I don't see your geographic area in your short bio, but if you post your general area ("near Topeka KS" or wherever) we might be able to give some ideas. (Note to everyone: We do NOT put Lyme doc names in public here, to keep cranky medical boards from harassing the Lyme docs. Please be discrete.
Avatar m tn Hi How is your boxer doing now? Did you ever find out te cause? I have an 8 year old Boxer that had three seizures and has beenon Phenobar for a little over three weeks and was seizure free until this morning. She had one. The only thing I did different was I delayed last night's dose by three hours.
5248641 tn?1367590847 about magnesium as it is one of my greatest battles at the moment... Ricobord is absolutely correct that only about 1% of your overall magnesium is located in your serum (blood) so when you have a routine blood test and your doctor tells you that your magnesium level is normal you are not necessarily out of the woods. The typical range of a serum magnesium is (1.5-3.0) for most labs. The rest of your magnesium is located in your red blood cells, tissue and bones.
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.
798555 tn?1292791151 to my understanding, the point of the abx challenge is to get your immune system to step up and react, so that the tests will show positive indicators of infection, if you are infected. The test results are the object of the exercise, not so much how you feel, tho you may Herx.
Avatar f tn I also had a sore throat, in fact my Dr said every gland in my body was swollen and still is most of the time. When the LLMD pushes on my stomach, it hurts, my massage therapist pointed out a gland in my arm was really swollen last week. You might be how I was 20 years ago. Looking back now and realizing it was all Lyme, maybe they were periods of remission ? I am not sure.
Avatar m tn I got diagnosed with epididymitis a week ago and the pain has just now began to leave. Is this common and how long does it normally take for the pain to go completely away along with the swelling? My scrotum hasn't swollen and i've had a ultrasound, blood test, and urine sample and all came back negitive for cancer or a tumor. I'm really frightened about it and hope that this is just epididymitis.
Avatar f tn There is a lot of confusion in the medical community about Lyme, and it's a field that is changing quickly as to how widespread Lyme is, how to best test for it, and how to treat it effectively. People with strong immune systems (and it sounds like yours is) can often carry on for years not feeling awful, but knowing that something is wrong ... and it sounds like you've experienced that.
Avatar n tn Can cystisis occur due to any STD ? How long it takes to treat Chlamydia and Gonorrhea with antibiotics.
Avatar m tn If no discharge or if the discharge is white or mucus with white streaks, gonorrhea is less likely. In any case, there is a lot of overlap in symptoms of gonorrhea, chlamydia, and nongonococcal urethritis (NGU). However, the rest of this assume your self-diagnosis is correct. 1) Most women with gonorrhea have no symptoms, unless they get complications. 2) Symptoms usually start to improve in a day or two and are entirely gone in a week.
Avatar f tn If instead the doc hears more detail about how long, how bad, such as 'my abdomen is swollen so much that I can't wear my usual clothes' or something to give context to how bad the symptoms are, like 'I've never had this before', then you'll likely get more reaction from the docs.
Avatar n tn Welcome to the forum. In response to some of the opening information. Without knowing anything else, the initial symptoms were not particularly suspicious for STD. (I'm referring only to the discomfort at the penile tip. Scrotal itching is definitely not a symptom of any STD.) They were sufficient to warrant evaluation, and it's good you got checked out. But they are sufficiently atypical that the negative tests should be viewed as confirming the expected findings.
Avatar f tn Well, the claim question is an interesting one...because I quit work two and a half years ago to move in with my 90 year old fstep-ather and 80 year old mother, which means I did not pay into the SS system for two (2008 will be three actually), I do not heave enough credits! Which means, no disability. Also, my small retirements pension is just above the amount you can bring in for SSI. So everything is a no go. Bummer. One foot in front of the other...
Avatar n tn Do you think that the chlamydia is out of my system or will be by the time this set of doxyclyclines finishes? Is the nurse's relaxed attitude regarding HIV justified? 5) What would you do in my situation? 6) Which HIV tests should I get done now? Going to London will be expensive and I prefer something here with the results on the same day. Doctor, please respond to me. I need your help and guidance. Please, thank you very much.
Avatar f tn Visit your doctor who will take a blood sample and fill out the required paperwork 3.Return your sample to CFR, pay for your test (see pricing) and receive your results in as little at 48 hours. I am ordering my free test kit Monday morning..mind you the test kit is free but the actual test cost $250. I know this may sound crazy but I am sooo excited to find a lab that is focused only lymes. P.S. I had a really good 9 hrs of the day today!
Avatar n tn clinic told me to go back in 4 weeks if i still had symptoms, anyway i was still getting symptoms enough to make me feel uncomfortable, went back and did a urine sample, they checked urine there and then,nothing found, sent it off to test for UTIs and chlamydia and both came back NEGATIVE and he examined me and took swabs to check for urethritis and said it was CLEAR, was then told he feels this is something now that will go in its own time and urethritis can take time to go....
Avatar m tn I would think a year is common, and sometimes longer, depending on what infections you have and how strong your immune system is. But it gets easier as time goes on, and you get stronger in small steps. Take care of yourself, eat well, sleep well, take meds as directed, stay in touch with the doc, and carry on! It took me about a year and a half or so for treatment, and it was worth it.
Avatar n tn You can hear the mucous rattling around when she coughs, but she says she cannot get it up -- it just moves around in her upper chest. The cough is a full, phleghmy bark, and it tends to come in fits. She'll be fine for a while and then hacking. Her doctor has called it sinusitis and tracheitis, but she's been on three courses of antibiotics -- Zithromax, Doxycycline, and now she's finishing 7 days of Biaxin -- and nothing seems to make it better. She doesn't have a fever (running around 99.
Avatar m tn The difference between ceftriaxone and benzathine penicillin is that the benzathine penicillin stays in your system for weeks (and is the most effective medicine for treating syphilis). Ceftriaxone disappears much more rapidly, and prolonged treatment is necessary for syphilis because the bacteria are slow in dividing. The appropriate dosage of benzathine penicillin is: 2.4 million U IM in a single dose, check this website to be sure:
4451049 tn?1387157037 , but there are quietly brave docs who will try to help as long as they don't end up on the front page of the local paper labelled as a quack. So shhhhhhhh.... Stay in touch and let us know how you're doing and how your search for answers and a doc are going, okay? We shall call thee 'Ephedra the Intrepid.
Avatar m tn I am curious how these repeated infections affect my organs in the long term. It seems only women which have diseases will sleep with me.
Avatar m tn Lyme will not go away by itself, although sometimes your immune system can keep it in check at a low level. Lyme bacteria are in the same family as those that cause syphilis, which is also a disease that persists over time and requires treatment to cure. You say: "I was thinking about MS or Lyme." That is a common differential, because the symptoms can be similar, at least in the eyes of MDs who are not familiar with Lyme. You say: "I know Lyme is super hard to diagnose.
Avatar n tn I'm still going to retest and I still haven't had sex with my gf. I told her it was an UTI. This is the biggest mistake of my life in the 22 years on being in this planet. To answer you question it is highly likely that your partner was unfaithful and lied to you people don't have untreated chlamydia for 2 years with-out health complications. Sorry for the long response I just hope my story gave you some insight.
6402846 tn?1391067348 Your comment about your legs hurting sent up a flag for me. That's a Bartonella symptom. I recommend that you do get tested for Bartonella. Doxy does have some anti-Bart properties and it can be effective early in an infection. Doxy doesn't resolve a long standing infection, but there are not studies to say exactly how long "long standing" is. Rifampin is a much better med for Bart. Doxy doesn't always resolve an established Lyme infection either.
Avatar f tn I wrote him back thanking him for saying he would re-fill my doxy, and informing him that the thyroid controls the whole body and my body has been attacked by the Lyme bacteria and once it is in your cells,tissues,and blood it is/could be for life. I added that I would appreciate he share my original e-mail with my regular dr. I never heard back from him and I am glad. So here is where I am at right now. Still feeling great but retaining water from the doxy.
