I made a big mistake not checking for side effects first in websites like this, if I would do it, I wouldn't take this horrible medication. it has been been almost 10 days since I stopped it, and i still feel some of the side effects, i have even thinking in going to a psychiatric hospital, sometimes I have been feeling that I am losing it. I know is not me, I know is this medication, I never in my life felt like this before. F 50 3 days

 4  Rocky Mt Spotted Fever, skin infection I have a permanent ringing and slight hearing loss in my left ear after being on Doxy for a period of three weeks for Rocky Mt. Spotted Fever. I also had increased symptoms of neuropathy in my feet and hands on top of the normal pain and burning I experience from diabetic neuropathy. I experienced some insomnia and increased fatigue. On my current 10 day treatment for toe infection I am having increased ear ringing, increased neuropathy, and insomnia. I had to weigh the benefits of this drug against the side effects and decided I would rather have the reduction of other symptoms and continue it. Doxy decreases the following vitamin levels in the body, which may cause many of the symptoms users have described: folic acid , potassium, vitamin B2 , vitamin B6 , vitamin B12 , vitamin C , and vitamin K .

 1  Epididymitis Chest pain, heart palpitations, anxiety, weakness and dizziness. I have taken antibiotics for various reasons my entire life and have never had a reaction to one much less any drug like this one. I have had a couple of panic attacks in my life and some anxiety but this was like having a panic attack then jumping out of an airplane for the first time. If you have ever had even the slightest anxiety in the past I would stay clear of doxycycline. The attack lasted a couple of hours which is a lifetime when experiencing it. It finally subsided and had my doc switch me to Levofloxacin 500 mg with no problems. Last, I had an EKG done at ER when during the attack and the attending physician said it was abnormal. After keeping me 6 hours the EKG had returned to normal. M 57 1 days

DOXYCYCLINE HYCLATE  (DOXYCYCLINE HYCLATE):  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)
