Hi Shelly,

Are you just starting meds for the first time or adding to abx?

Doxy is very harsh on the tummy, and most people take it with or after eating to avoid it messing up your stomach.

Do not lie down within a half hour of taking it or it can erode your esophogus!

You shouldnt take it with dairy, and absolute no exposure to sun. You can get a bad burn, (without redness) even from a few mintues in sunlight.

Do read the info that comes with the packaging from the pharmacy.

Are you also taking a very high culture/high strain probiotic every day, 2-3 times? Doxy wipes all the good stuff out bigtime, so you need to replenish often.

You can also get yeast while on doxy and recommend a good herbal antifungal like Oregamax or Olive Leaf Extract. Antifungals are what kills yeast so that you dont wind up with chronic yeast infections or systemic yeast.

Doxy is really a very good abx tho. My symtpoms improved greatly while on it.

Good luck and keep us posted.
