 5  for ear infections- fungal Running diarrhea after the 10 days cycle. I am throwing up. Shaking and trying to pass out. F 68 10 days
 4  Doxycycline Actavis Intracranial Tension Headache Blurred Vision Clay Stools Stomach Pain Frequent Urination Anxiety Itchy Skin Constipation Insomnia + Waking in Night Fatique Associated Herxheimer Reaction Shaking and Nervousness Increased Liver Enzyme Count Kidney Aches and Pains and Lower Back Aches/Pain Bloodshot Eyes Taking a high dosage for Lyme treatment along with Artesunate, Bromelain, Alpha Lipoic Acid and Nattokinese - a proven regime for Lyme Treatment. This medication must be taken with food to avoid severe stomach pains. Do as it says and never take on empty stomach. This medication is effective against Lyme as part of a carefully planned treatment regime, but the side effects are very noticeable and require monitoring. My Lyme symptoms disappeared within 4 days, but I must finish treatment regime to kill every last one. For me, the non-stop intracranial tension is bearable, but I'm only half way into course. I'm taking supplements such as Oral Liposomal Glutathione to help my liver, as my liver enzymes have increases and I have intermittent clay stools and signs my liver is a bit sensitive to this drug. Also, if your on strong antibiotics like these, then it must be balanced with a strong pro-biotic to replace the bacteria being killed in the gut. Taking this medication requires strong willpower as the side effects can interfere with day-to-day life. Many people stop taking it mid-treatment. I'm going to get to the end of the 28 days. I can say that side-effect symptoms do start to decrease as your body gets used to the drug after a week or so. My advice is to have family and friends to reassure you whilst taking this. Increased fear and anxiety are definitely noticeable. M 34 28 days

 4  Sinus infection nausea/vomiting if taken on any empty stomach sinus infection resolved F 29 10 days
 1  sinus infection Crippling diarrhea, nausea, severe stomach cramps and vomiting. Not worth it! F 33 3 days
 2  suspected prostate infection I didn't get the nausea but got depressed and stayed in a really black mood. I started on 100 mg once per day and noticed really long, intense, nightmarish dreams. Increasing the does to twice daily was unberable because I felt violent and hated everybody. That scared me enough to drop the dose back to 100 mG once per day. I was prescribed this antibiotic because an MRI scan showed possible prostate cancer but a biopsy showed nothing. The doctor told me to take the antibiotic for 30 days to see if the scan peculiarity was just due to some kind of infection. Whilst I would like to take the full dose, I cannot as I felt I was going crazy and the rage I felt inside me was too frightening, I am usually pretty laid back. I guess it's better than cipro, the drug the doctor wanted for me to take - but I refused. M 65 10 days

 4  Bacterial Sinus Infection I was prescribed this antibiotic because I am allergic to Amoxicillin. I am also taking this with sudafed. After reading the reviews and the uses for this; I wasnt sure if i wanted to try it. But today i am on my second pill and so far i havent had any side effects. I have cut dairy out of my diet for the time im taking vibramycin. It also says to sit up 30 minutes after taking the pill and to take it with with food in your stomach and a big glass of water. It seems to be helping me mend and start feeling like myself again. I have noticed an occasional rash that only lasts a moment on my finger and arm but nothing that i would need to call the doctor about. F 25 2 days

 1  STI-Urethritis For the particular condition that I was prescribed,(Urethritis), the antibiotic was totally exacerbating. I took it three times for the condition until I finally realized what it was doing as the third time the rash that was a result of the Doxycyline was bodily(Erythema Multiforme-Minor). The rash is caustic and excruciating(unbearable) and massive amounts of Intensive Therapy Cream were mollifying. I understand now that the rash occurred as the doxycycline is supposed to be used in conjunction with another antibiotic. I found out I was supposed to be using it with the metronidazole for the Urethritis. Three years later I'm still trying to find a doctor to prescribe me a course to eradicate the bacteria which now completely diseases me. I have Balanitis, Uveitis, Generalized Erythema that is Edematous, and a Subluxated T10 or T11. I also almost ruptured a tendon a few years ago. My teeth are pretty well eaten away at the gum line. I persist on cran-max, vitamins/supplements, and have to use joint support. M 38 7 days

Even Days After AntiBiotics was Gone Vibramycin would return at same time of the day that I had been taking it; even though I hadn't taken it, like it had memory recall on my psychosis, and it would take control of me like the Matrik SCARRY STUFF!! TRUE STORY!!!!!! SIMPLY PUT BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU CHOOSE TO PUT IN YOUR BODY THIS STUFF CAN BE TOXIC!!! M 34 10 days

 2  UTI Euphoria, 'swelling of the head' (head felt swollen), weakness/fatigue I took Doxycycline for a suspected UTI. I will not take it again. I did not experience nausea or sunlight sensitivity, but I did experience psychiatric effects (mostly euphoria) which was a bit strange, and my head constantly felt swollen / my blood felt like molasses. I also had a general feeling of being 'sick' that didn't wear off until I the medication was stopped. M 27 14 days

VIBRAMYCIN  (DOXYCYCLINE):  This medication is used to treat a wide variety of bacterial infections, including those that cause acne. This medication is also used to prevent malaria. This medication is known as a tetracycline antibiotic. It works by stopping the growth of bacteria. This antibiotic treats only bacterial infections. It will not work for viral infections (such as common cold, flu). Using any antibiotic when it is not needed can cause it to not work for future infections.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
