Minocycline headache

Common Questions and Answers about Minocycline headache


Avatar n tn I called the doctor and he told me to take some Tylenol to get rid of the headache and told me to start taking minocyline again until if I feel I have a headache again and by then I should stop minocycline completely. I don't want to take it anymore because I know it's the minocyline that giving me the headache. I would rather have acne then die so yea! So, what do you think my doctor will say when I ask him to put me on Accutane after suffer from the side effect of minocycline ?
Avatar n tn Hi, I suffer major side effect when using minocycline. I asked my family doctor to prescribe me accutane and he told I could get accutane from a dermatologist which he is referring me to one right now. I have an appt on the 7th of next month and I'm very anxious to know what will happen next. I was wondering what other antibiotics are out there that work better than minocycline? Something that will not make me feel weak, dizzy and give me severe headache like minocyclin does ?

Avatar f tn is it ok to take tylenol and minocycline? My daughter called from college and took them together for the first time and now has a bad headache. Should we be concerned?
Avatar m tn I have not had these symptoms previously over the course of my time on minocycline. The symptoms I just mentioned are known side effects of minocycline, however, I thought it was peculiar that I got them a few days after stopping use of the drug. Also a condition called Idiopathic intracranial hypertension, or benign intracranial hypertension, or pseudotumor cerebri is known to be an uncommon effect of minocycline.
Avatar n tn He started minocycline again a few weeks later. He has had a constant headache since 10-20-2007 (no minocycline since). His MRI came back with a mass in Rt sinus and they just started antibiotics. His eye exam was neg. He gets no relief from OTC migraine meds, 600 mg ibuprofen takes the "edge" off, but he said it feels like it hurts more after the dose wears off. The earliest neurology appt I can get him is 2 weeks away. WHAT can I do?
Avatar n tn My 15yr old son had rt orbit repair 2004. On minocycline for acne 6-07. Severe headaches resulted in lumbar puncture 8-07 (the results were normal)...off minocycline (because he felt too sick to take anything) for 2 weeks and then he was fine and started minocycline. Severe headaches started 10-20 (no minocycline since).Opthamology exam normal. MRI showed mass rt orbit and he is being treated for sinus infection (but NO SYMPTOMS-ie frontal pain, congestion.
Avatar n tn Severe headaches result in lumbar puncture 8-07 (results WNL).no minocycline for 2 weeks then resumed. Severe headache and no minocycline since 10-20.BP always WNL even when he is in severe pain.
280418 tn?1306329510 After I eat lunch, I'm sick. After I eat dinner, I'm sicker. Pressure type headache, tinnitus and nausea ruined my day yesterday. I can't do this EVERY day! Ugh, I don't know if it's sinuses, Lyme, migraine, hormones or what?
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 I took tetracycline,minocycline with birth control pills as well and then accutane. i only took accutane for 5 weeks cos i started getting headaches after. but then... when i stopped taking the medication.. i still get the bad headaches and im very dizzy.
Avatar n tn This medication may cause upset stomach, diarrhea, dizziness, unsteadiness, drowsiness, headache or vomiting. Minocycline increases sensitivity to sunlight. Prolonged sun exposure should be avoided. Wear protective clothing and use a sunscreen if needed. Very unlikely but should be reported: fever, yellowing of the eyes or skin, stomach pain, sore throat, vision changes and mental changes. Follow up with your doctor regularly and report to him/her if you notice any abnormal symptoms.

Avatar m tn She'll suddenly get a random sharp pain in her head, go blind, get numbness in her lips, and then have to hold onto something because she'll feel weak and usually fall to the floor then its like she loses control of her limbs. She says the headache doesn't always hurt, but symptoms remain. It lasts for a brief period of time, like ten seconds Its been going on for about 3 years. It does not happen all the time but it's been happening more frequently recently. What might be wrong?
Avatar f tn I started a new abx ceftinin 600mg 2x/day. I have the worst headache, neck ache, chills and sweats. Been taking hot baths and showers all day. Any ideas of what might help?
Avatar m tn Test is conclusive
Avatar m tn My LLMD added minocycline with the Bicillin LA I have been taking for months. During the week or two on minoccycline, had major problems with dizziness and painful toes. Now I am taking azithromax and tindimax, along with the 2.4 mu of Bicillin LA two shots a week. Have felt bad, feet tingling and anxiety back badly, especially around 8 a.m. Also feel spacey and get headaches. As some of you know, I have lost a lot of body fat during the last two years, and it is still getting worse.
Avatar f tn I have severe pressure in the head after going on minocycline. I spoke to my doctor who said he thought it may be a herx and we tried multiple things (ibuprofen, benadryl with no relief). I have been to the ER twice now with no relief. A ct scan was done which was normal, all medication i am given for headaches doesn't work....and the head pressure continues. I heard about possible intracranial hypertension and went to an opthalmologist. They did extensive eye testing which was all fine.
Avatar m tn About still not feeling 100% after 2 wks on meds, Lyme (to my recollection) is not something that vanishes right away after taking med, like a headache does. But also ask that question when you call in tomorrow. The doc may want to see you, and if so, then I would go, just to close the loop. Then if you see the doc, ask the question about your partner needing meds. It's wise of you to raise the issue, just to be on the safe side.
Avatar m tn went to dermatologist complaining of burning sensation in mustache area and dry yet oily skin on my cheeks which would not subside after drinking 60 ounces of water a day.
Avatar f tn Meds., Surgery???? I also have poor responses to medications. I was on Minocycline for 4 years off and on and it worked great. Now it creates a persistant headache and some swelling around the orbit like pseudotumor. Blephamide ointment has started causing extreme vertigo and a swelling effect in my whole head after a year of using it off and on. I feel crazy but I'm not. I think these last two symptoms are separate issues like multiple chemical sensitivities or allergic reactions.
Avatar m tn Also, I see where others talk about feeling more energy and feeling better after starting to take antibiotics. Me, on the other hand, feel like they are killing me. I have awful headache, anxiety, nausea, and can't sleep. I started minocycline, and feeling the same way.
3139374 tn?1342818511 and as far as the antibiotic, do a little research about minocycline and rheumatoid arthritis. i actually got some minocycline from my general doctor and took it for about a month and it definitely made a difference. i know it made a difference because i quit taking it for about a week and a half and i kind of flared up again. i'm taking it again and i plan to take it for a while and see how it does. i'll keep you posted. i also go back to the rheumatologist on monday.
Avatar m tn My neck is probably my largest complaint as it is so soar that I have a constant headache. If I do anything even slightly physical I will be even more sick and soar the following day. • Jaw pain and stiffness • My eyes do feel soar at times but this may be due to wearing contacts as my vision has decreased over the last few years. Before that I had perfect vision. • At times i feel as though I have pressure in my ears.

Avatar m tn my question is i have to take antibodies or continue when its goes negative ? ....still i have symptoms ringing in ears,headache sometimes.i dont have any contact for sex .
Avatar f tn 3/27 generalized soreness in pubic region that I attributed to the sex 3/28 found some (20ish) red bumps in my pubic region that I attributed to shaving irritation and hair regrowth; had a headache 3/29 bumps really start to hurt and I find that they extend perineally towards my anus, but none seen on internal vaginal surfaces; they appear pustulant, however, popping one (bad idea) did not release any pus; headache and really tired attributed to crazy busy weekend 3/30 pain is still impressive
Avatar n tn (Tested negative for all STD's (including HIV/HSV2) 3 months later.) 2.) I have a sore throat, headache in my forehead and pain around my eyes, general feeling of fatigue, cough/phlegm. My lymph nodes are also sore/swollen in the left side of my neck, as well....but not the right side. 3.) Itching in the same areas (left groin area, base of penis, right testicle) since the encounter...no blisters or lesions (believe me, I've been looking), just itching. I am just curious...
309783 tn?1271961829 Hi Eloise. I think we may have been separated at birth. I have been on venlafaxine XR 75 mg daily for many years - love it. Just be sure not to miss doses or try to quit taking it without tapering off, as it has a short half-life and, unlike most anti-depressants, can cause withdrawal symptoms after missing only a couple of days. They're not dangerous, just very noticeable, and confusing if you don't know what's going on.
