hi,
I am 2 wks into my abx treatment, 100mg of Doxy 2x a day... just in the past few days my stomach and intestines feel as if they are revolting! I am taking a probiotic and even drinking Kefir to keep everything status quo, but something is up. Anyone else??
Thank you!

I always had stomach problems with Doxy. Stayed on it for 2.5 months and the gut issues never ended until I stopped taking it.

Yes... take it in the middle of a meal and DO NOT lie down for AT LEAST 30 min afterwards.

Ask your physician for Doryx which is the coated version of Doxy. This should eliminate the stomach issues.
