Minocycline and nausea

Common Questions and Answers about Minocycline and nausea


Avatar n tn Hi, I took 100mg Minocycline for about 6th days and on the 7th day my started getting severe headache and very drowsy and feel pretty weak. I can't even go to the gym anymore. Anyway, I've stopped using it and the headaches started to go away but in the last two days it's still hurt when I turn my head back and fourth and I feels like my head is very heavy. What should I do ?
Avatar n tn After one week of 200mg I started experiencing severe dizziness and nausea. I immediately stopped treatment and the dizziness subsided within 24 hours. However I have now begun to develop a very itchy rash in between my ring finger and middle finger and on my eye-lid. The rash looks like poison ivy which I used to get very frequently as a child. I noticed the rash two days after ending treatment. Does anyone know if minocycline is the cause of this rash and what does it mean in general terms?
Avatar f tn The dosage is within the prescribed limits and I do not believe the side effects to be related to the medication. Bactrim may be similar to minocycline and may be used is suggested by your treating doctor. Hope this information is helpful. Take care!
Avatar f tn Hello, Confusion and convulsions and dizziness can be caused by use of minocycline. You should take this medicine only under medical guidance and report the side effect to the doctor. Treatment of acne include topical and oral antibiotics, topical retinoids, hormonal therapy, dermabrasion , phototherapy and laser resurfacing. Normally a combination of treatments is followed and if nothing proves effective then dermabrasion and laser therapy are useful.

Avatar m tn Minocycline is a dangerous hepato (liver) toxic drug. Physicians and the public are much more alert about side effects of Accutane and usually have blood work done every couple of months. But dermatologists prescribe minocycline like candy. Yet it can result in very serious auto-immune liver disease. It is NOT safer than Accutane.
Avatar m tn Recently I had a migraine that lasted 2 days. I had visual distortions, head pain, and slight nausea the first day and only a headache on the second day. This migraine occured last Saturday and Sunday. I stopped taking the minocycline on the day of the migraine's start (last Saturday) and have not taken it since then (today is Monday), which is a week and two days. Over the past few days I have had a slight headache, some sensitivity to lights, slight nausea, and some dizziness.
Avatar f tn (Years ago I was put on tetracycline for something completely unrelated and after about a week on that, I was puking and I stopped.) Then I read that there are some things you can try to do with doxy to keep your stomach settled, so I'm considering going back on the stuff IF it is the most likely to actually cure this incredibly frustrating and uncomfortable condition.
Avatar m tn I have been on Minocycline for coming up 9 years now and i'm currently down to one 50mg pill a day to control my acne, my question is what effects does it have on my cognitive ability and memory over such a long period of time.
Avatar f tn I've been in an out of the hospital and nothing they have prescribed me has worked for nausea or my headache, but then I realized this all started a day or two after I started taking 100mg of minocycilne instead of only 50mg (I took 5mg for a month and it didn't make me sick, but I didnt clear my face either). It cleaned up my face perfectly (I've been taking it for 3 weeks), within a very timely matter too, but Im so sick I cant make it out of my dorm room (Im a college student).
Avatar m tn Now some right kidney pain had returned. We tried to go off the Minocycline and crashed with unbearable pain, nausea and weakness. Starting Doxycylcine with the Septra, 2 mos ago. I am better, no blood etc' what so ever, UNLESS I try to go down on the Silverbiotics but have the mild kidney pain. Making decisions on the next steps since in my case they are extreme. I will e-mail you my pain management program later... I prefer not to post that openly on the web.
Avatar f tn I'm duplicating the regimen described in the studies (Two 300mg doses daily for a total of 600mg) and as of today in week four I can say I am wart free. After one week of zinc I got periodic waves of nausea for 2 or 3 days but I stuck with it and they went away. I'm going to keep up this high does for the full 5 week regimen they taper down to a lower dose, maybe 100mg. For those who think 600mg is poisonous or risking toxicity I refer you to two scientific studies (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.
Avatar n tn Antibiotics that have been shown to interact with birth control pills include rifampin (brand name Rifadin), penicillin (Veetids), amoxicillin (Amoxil), ampicillin (Omnipen), cotrimoxazole (Septra or Bactrim), tetracycline (Sumycin), minocycline (Minocin), metronidazole (Flagyl), and nitrofurantoin (Macrobid or Macrodantin)." vs. "Penicillin and ampicillin both have the potential to interfere with the effectiveness of birth control pills" vs.
Avatar n tn Hello, Some of the side effects of Cynomycin(minocycline) are dizziness, nausea,vomiting and stomach upset, hives, blurred vision, blood in stools, headache, joint pain and muscle pain. There are currently four oral contraceptives approved by the FDA for the treatment of acne: Ortho Tri-Cyclen, Estrostep, and Yaz. These are available under prescription. Hope it helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional queries. Warm regards.
Avatar n tn For the last 6 months I have been getting tearing (look like paper cuts) in my vaginal area (1/4 to 1/2 inch long). I get the tears at least once or twice a week and they last from 2-4 days, go away for a few days and then come back. They continue to occur in the same locations; 1. Inside the vaginal lips on the sides almost always in the crease (between the labia minora and majora?) 2. Between the anus and vaginal opening (perineum) 3. Above the clitoris in the "hood" area.
Avatar f tn 05 mg, Nexium 40mg, Minocycline 50 mg and Levora .15/30 I want to start a diet pill while taking these medications. The name of the diet pill is Lipovox. Can you tell me if any or all of these medications would cause side effects? I have feelings of nausea and was wondering if the combination of all these meds would cause that. Also, is it safe to take the diet pill with the prescribed meds? Thank you.
Avatar n tn I am getting pains, that come and go, right between my scrotum and my rectum. It feels liek someone is stabbing a knife into me. The first two times it happened it was bareable but still hurt like a mother. It happened on time when i sneezed and happened one time when i jumped off a step to the ground. It was only like a 2 foot drop though but that really hurt. This last time it happened i was driving and it was the worst yet.
Avatar f tn It was amazing what a small dose of minocycline along with the Benicar could do. I had herxing symptoms and felt worse as a result. The Marshall Protocol is a research protocol. You can google for more information.
507935 tn?1217363054 Hi julie, My 18 year old son was on minocycline and came down with severe joint pain last april and high liver enzymes. He was eventually diagnosed with drug induced hepatitis after a liver biopsy. After 4 months on prednisone he is finally off of it but is still experiencing some joint pain. What has been your experience?
Avatar n tn There are plenty of medications available for acne treatment. Minocycline belongs to the tetracyclines and are thought to exert their antimicrobial effect by the inhibition of protein synthesis. It is a semisynthetic derivative of tetracycline and is active against many tetracycline resistant strains of organisms such as staphylococci, streptococci and E. coli. It is indicated in many diseases including skin and soft tissue infections such as cystic and pustular types of acne.
Avatar n tn I have taken Sulfasalazine which did not work and have taken Minocycline for 4 years. The Minocycline has eradicated many of the symptoms but not the most severe. I am convinced the disease is bacterial and have tried a number of antibiotic combinations to no avail. After reading up on it alot it seems that many arthritis conditions are caused by bacteria that, once in the joint create bio films that can not be broken down by Antibiotics.
Avatar m tn I tried minocycline many years before that and had bad enough reactions to it that I quit it. They weren't herxes, as far as I know but a reaction to mino. "SIDE EFFECTS: Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, lightheadedness, dizziness, unsteadiness, drowsiness, mouth sores, or cough may occur. If any of these effects persist or worsen, notify your doctor or pharmacist promptly.
280418 tn?1306329510 Oh and the combo of Valtrex and mino - who knows-- check that! Valtrex -- anecdotally -- makes Lyme symptoms better! You're on your way. Congrats...Keep us posted and feel better soon.
Avatar n tn this worked and the acne hasnt come back. he had no side affects like nausea, but was extra sensitive to the sun and wore sunscreen, which is also recommended when using retin a.
Avatar m tn A number of drugs, including methyldopa, nitrofurantoin, and minocycline, can produce an illness with the clinical features of autoimmune hepatitis. Although most cases improve when the drug is stopped, chronic cases of autoimmune hepatitis may be seen, even after drug withdrawal So, you don't "get" autoimmune hepatitis from anyone, your own body causes you to develop which means AIH IT IS NOT A CONTAGIOUS DISEASE! Q: Is there a CURE? As far as I know, the answer is no.
Avatar f tn It is 4 a.m. and I am desperately trying to figure out why I continue to break out in hives and have joint pain in my elbows, feet, hands and legs. I too started breaking out in hives after taking the antibotic Solodyn for acne. After a trip to the ER, it was assumed that I had an alergic reaction to the medicine. I stopped taking the medicine after only 3 weeks and needless to say, I am still breaking out in hives and have joint pain. I have been tested for allergies and that was negative.
Avatar n tn i have many times and never go away, when i wear my hairband and my ears are noise very bad, feel panic attack, headaches, i want to back normal again
Avatar f tn PLEASE HELP!!! I'M CONFUSED! HAVING STOMACH PROBLEMS! LOTS OF BURPING! Hey guys I have a question. I've always had anxiety since I was in Jr. High, I ONLY got attacks whenever I was in class (college). My anxiety is from stress/overthinking. When class was over my anxiety was gone. I would go to the stores, friends houses, the gym with no anxiety. I decided to take anxiety medicine because I couldn't focus in class.
