It has been quite a while since I have taken doxycycline, but now have to take a course due to a tick attachment over the weekend.

I remember that you should not use dairy products like milk around the dose of doxy ... it will reduce effectiveness, correct?

No dairy 24 hours a day or just around the doses?

Didn't someone win a lawsuit against a pharmacy once because they were not told by the pharmacy not to use dairy and did and as a result the doxy did not work and their Lyme progressed?

Also, sun sensitivity is a big factor. I remember my daughter took it once during the summer and no amout of sunscreen kept her from extreme sun sensitivity. I felt horrible when I realized she was burning.

Anything else I am missing?

Thanks ...

Connie

No milk products for 2 hours of taking doxy.

Don't lay down for an hour or two after taking it.

For me, easier to tolerate with food.

Get a Michael Jackson glove for driving (I burned my hand really bad during a 3 hour trip once).

Hope you do well. Rmember the diet and probiotics.

Hugs,

Geneal

Damn, damn, damn !!!!!!!!!!! I an so sorry this happened. I think you have all the info on doxy down. One more thing I sorta remember that you may want to check into is calcium and or magnesium supplements interfering with absorption of doxy.

For that matter I would check on any supplements you are on that may interact. I think most/many minerals can interfere with med absorption.

Hope this does not set you back.

Call me when time permits..........

Be well,
robi

Well, glad my memory is intact ...

I read the pharmacy attachment and it said it is more effective to take it on an empty stomach. Ick ... not sure whether I will be able to do that or not ... this morn I got pretty bad nausea, but didn't lose the pills. Last night was OK, stomach is stronger in the evening.

Short of hiding in my room, I will be exposed to ticks. We did a tick check on Sat then later, there it was. Don't think it was there long but was fully attached. B*stard - I hate those things. The area around the attachment flared up some to about quarter size and is itching like crazy so I contacted my trusty LLMD who never fails to come to my rescue.

Robi, if you are home today and wanna talk, give me a ring ... I am working in my home office today ... you have the number. I sent you an email awhile back ... alot is happening with my job, etc, due to the death of our president/founder Mick a few weeks back. I have been thrown into an administrative position, which was both unexpected and unwelcome ... but my immense respect for Mick causes me to want to jump in there and help get the company back on track.

Talk to you soon...

Thanks all for all the help...

Hi Connie,

I'm sure everyone above has covered all the no, no's about doxy.

I agree w/ no doxy on an empty stomach, it made me double over in severe pain. I had to walk out of a store all hunched over.

I took mine 4rs. away from any milk based food or drink, calcium or mag supplements.

So sorry about the tick attachment, good health to you!
