doxycycline false positive drug test for cocaine

I am taking doxycycline, tacrolimus, omeprazole, and a nasal spray presently. Could one or the combination cause a positive urine for cocaine? ## FAISAL- When you test positive for coke there's really no other drug out there (either prescribed or over the counter) that would give you a false positive for coke.., Honestly the only way to test positive for coke is if it's in your system. Yeah there are drugs that are over the counter and etc that will make you have a false positive for stuff like Benzos, methamphetamines, barbiturates, opiates and narcotics, but as far as cocaine if you test positive for cocaine it's because it is cocaine. There is nothing out there that will give you a false positive for cocaine when they test for cocaine. It's a specific test that tests ...

can i take doxycycline with methadone

Hi I'm on 118 mg of methadone and I was just prescribed 100 mg of doxycycline. Since I've started taking this combination I have been experiencing withdrawal symptoms. About 30 minutes after I take my antibiotic I start getting leg cramps, sneezed and about a hour after i take it I'm on the toilet with the diarrhea. I don't know if its an effect of taking both or just the antibiotic ## Hello Dee, According to the NIH drug interaction checker there should be no issue with taking these two medications together. It's possible that the doxycycline is causing these problems. Among the listed side effects of docycycline diarrhea is one of them as well as mild discomfort but it doesn't specify which type of discomfort. I think that your leg cramping up is a pretty decen...

Can I take doxycycline hycate 100 ml with methadone? I have cellulitis on my leg. ## Hello, Alicia! How are you? Has your doctor prescribed it for you? I didn't find any interactions or problems listed, but it is always best to double check to be sure. The FDA lists the typical side effects of most antibiotics as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash, and diarrhea. ## Alicia, Yes you can if it's doctor prescribed and you have no known allergies to this family of drugs. I recently underwent major surgery and was prescribed it. Other than some minor GI disturbance I tolerated it. PLEASE DOUBLE CHECK WITH YOUR PHARMACIST. ## I am on a methadone prescription and my doctor has prescribed me doxycycline. I need to know if I take them will my methadone ...

Topical Cream: dicl bacl gaba lido doxe

I have found all of the elements in this topical cream (dicl bacl gaba lido doxe) EXCEPT for "DOXE". Can someone explain the abbreviation of this component and any side-effects? ## Hi twotrees, There are a couple medications that come to mind when I see the abbreviation "Doxe": [1] Doxycycline - An antibiotic, topically used to treat moderate to severe inflammatory acne, or mild inflammatory acne. [2] Doxepin - When applied topically, it can reduce itching caused by atopic dermatitis, lichen simplex chronicus, and other skin diseases. I'm personally leaning towards "Doxepin" due to how close the abbreviation is to the actual drug name and it's topical use-case. If it is Doxepin, you can view a list of possible side effects in the link below: ncbi.nlm.nih....

Port removal insicion skin eruption

8 weeks after my chest port was removed and seemed to healing well, a small fissure opened up on one end and reddened with a tiny pustule. I opened it, drained it, and disinfected. It began to heal, a week later another on the other end of the incision scar has developed one. Started taking 9 Doxycycline Hcl that I had left over, seems to less angry, but still there, I have 4 Cipro 500 mg also, can I take those? Please advise.the surgeon put in inside stitches after removing the port, was this okay? ## Rather than self-treating, you should consult a doctor, or see your surgeon to have this checked out. Getting a full systemic infection from this would not be a good thing, it could put your life in danger. The FDA lists the typical side effects of antibiotics as possibly including nausea...

Doxycycline Drug Information

While taking doxycycline will tanning hurt you? ## I dont know,but I'm trying to figure out the side effects of being out in the sun, as in burnt while on this medicine, because I'm getting a long bump bump, like I've been hit in the head, and my skin feels like it is on fire. How can I find out the side effcts of this antibiotic and the sun, because I'm getting a little worried. ## When I rec'd my bottle, it had a sticker on it that says avoid exposure to excessive sunlight. I believe it makes you more sensitive. I did go to the tanning bed on day two of the meds, but it had been several hours since I took my dose and I just stayed half as long as usual. I didn't burn badly, but I did get more than usual in only half the time. ## Yes, Stephanie is correct, it ma...

Doxycycline and chest pain

I have been taking 100mg tablets twice daily for 2 days. I have been up with the most horrible chest pains both nights. It hurts to eat, drink, or even swallow. What is this? Is this normal for this medication? ## I am experiencing terrible heart burn. Could this be caused from this drug Doxycycline? I never have this problem. What do I need to do? ## Please e-mail me back concerning this, Thank You, Doris ## The heartburn is caused by not drinking a full 8oz of water with each pill. I didn't do that and though I was dieing the burning and chest pain was so bad. Now I see they say take with full glass of water. ## Regardless of anyone else's experience using the drug, you should always speak to your doctor about such problems, to rule out other causes, which could potentially be...

expiration date of doxycycline

I have doxy that was mixed on 5/14/2014 by my vet. Its only a little over 30 days old and I use it for the kittens that come from our local animal control. Most have some type of infection. I just rescued 6 who need the doxy, is it still good? ## Hello, Terrie! How are the little fur faces? This is an antibiotic, so it doesn't become dangerous after the expiration, but it does start to lose effectiveness and the problem with that is the risk of antibiotic resistance. I'd suggest double checking with your veterinarian, I'd think it should be safe, but since I'm not entirely familiar with the use of medications in animals, I'm reluctant to say definitively. Is there anything else I can help with? ## While I have not yet discovered the answer to your question, the previ...

Doxycycline hyclate 100 mgs

This drug doesn't seem to be available at any dose. Have they stopped making it? I take it for rosacea... ## Hi lynn, According to The American Society of Health-System Pharmacists: As of December 10, 2012, there has been a shortage in Doxycycline Capsules and Tablets, mainly due to supply and demand (with a lack of raw materials). You can read more on the shortage here: ashp.org/DrugShortages/Current/Bulletin.aspx?id=977 Unfortunately, it seems as though no one really knows when they will be restocking the supply.

Doxycyclin, jaw/ brain infection

I have been given doxycycline against Lyme disease, but I suspect I have a jaw abscess/head infection as the jaw is very painful my headaches are localised as well as inflamed nerves and my head feels as if it has pus at the base. Will doxycycline work for abscess and head infections or do I need to get different treatment? ## It is a broad spectrum antibiotic, so it can help with various types of infections. The NIH lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, diarrhea, and non-allergic skin rash. However, if you have an abcess, it is very important to consult a doctor to discover what has caused it. If you don't, then the underlying cause could remain, and may cause the infection to return.

Been taking 1 antibiotic pill instead of 2 a day

I've been taking antibiotics for a UTI for the past week and a half, my doctor said take this antibiotic for a week and you'll be done. It's been a week and a half, and I just realised that the bottle had said take two a day, but I've only been taking one a day. I know this was stupid of me to not read the bottle, but I just want to know if this will compromise my recovery or something. Should I just keep taking them this way until they're gone or should I start taking two a day? ## What antibiotic was prescribed? I'm sorry, but I can't answer your question, without knowing this additional information. Can you please post back and clarify? Thank you! The FDA lists most common antibiotic side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-aller...

doxycycline hyclate 20 mg can this be used for tooth abscess?

No money right now for a dentist and I have a new bottle of doxycyline hyclate in 20 mg form (using for acne) pill says lci on one side and 1336 on the other, small round white. I have a tooth abscess and want to know if I can increase the dosage safely to 100 mg per day to fight the infection? ## @Jason, Based on my research, Doxycycline can be used for a tooth abscess. The usual adult dose for a severe bacterial infection is listed at 100mg orally every 12 hours for 7 to 10 days; (but the 100mg may also be taken once daily as a "maintenance" dose for less severe infections). My only question to you would be do you have enough pills to run a full course of treatment, in order to fully eradicate the infection? The last thing you'd want is drug resistant bacteria, so I do hop...
