what is LU M73

should u not have dairy after or before taking pill ## Hello, Emily! How are you? Yes, while taking Doxycycline, you should make sure to take it at least an hour after having any dairy products, or anything containing calcium and you shouldn't ingest them for at least 2 hours after taking it. Otherwise, it may prevent you from absorbing as much of the antibiotic as you need. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash and diarrhea. Is there anything else I can help with? ## 73 lu pill To cleanse yourself how many should take ## I have sores from fiberglass is that good for that

Has anyone taken Com Doxynol 200?

I have recently been dealing with a uti issue. I was prescribed doxycycline for a week and got better. By the end of the week I'm not going to go into details but I'm pretty sure I reinforced myself and started to get the feeling of the UTI symptoms again. So I found a supposed to be trusted pharmacy delivery service from Canada. They didn't have any research on them being a bad or unreliable source from the FDA or anything so figured it was ok. It even explains on there how to take your prescription, like times, etc. and what the side effects were and what not. So I filled a prescription for the 200 mg of doxycycline they said they had in stock. It came in today and it's labeled in a package from a company called Combitic Global Caplet Pvt. Ltd. Based out of India. I lo...

Does Doxytet have an effect on my menstrual cycle?

My doctor gave me doxytet and didn't explain on how i should take them. He just told me they are for skin and i didn't know they are antibiotics. Plus i just stopped taking them without really finishing them and my periods are late. ## Yes, antibiotics have been known to cause irregularities in the menstrual cycle. If you are on oral contraceptives, they can also reduce their efficacy at preventing pregnancy. Ref: Medline Plus Doxycycline Other side effects are listed as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, non-allergic skin rash, and diarrhea. Is there anything else I can help with?

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).

Doxycycline and breast feeding

I have a sore breast with clogged duct. I am going to take the antibiotic Doxycycline. I am still breast feeding a 12 month old. There shouldn't be any problems, right? ## Did your doc prescribe it? If you’re breast-feeding, you need to make sure that the drug you’re taking won’t get to your baby via your breast milk. ## Short term use is not considered problematic, according to FDA information, but long-term use may be a concern, since it can be excreted in breast milk. Thus, make sure to only take it as prescribed, and keep all appointments with your doctor. The FDA list the typical side effects of Doxycyline as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, diarrhea, and non-allergic skin rash. Is there anything else I can help with?

can anaerobyl bring my menstruation back

I hevent seen my menstruation for six years.I went to de Dr n they gave me anaerobyl 400 , ciplex , doxycycline and ferrous and folic acid , can all this tablets help ? Please give advice on what more can I use to bring back my menstruation iv been trying to conceive n its difficult. ## Hello Shima! How are you? Has there been any change? How old are you? It really depends on why you haven't experienced a period in so long. If it is due to menopause, then there isn't really anything you can do to change that. However, it could be due to several other medical conditions, and resolving such an issue will require getting the relevant condition under control, if so. Are you on any other medications?

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 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 Doxycycline a sulfa drug?

Can I take Doxycycline 100 mg tablets if I have a sulfa allergy? ## Hi Carol, according to an article I read from the Mayo Clinic, Doxycycline is not listed as a sulfa drug, so you should be okay to take it as prescribed. I also cross referenced the Wikipedia page on Sulfonamides, and it too did not list Doxycycline. If you have other allergies or sensitivities, I'd just double check the inactive ingredients as well to ensure that there is nothing else in there that could disagree with you. If you can refer to the National Drug Code (NDC) printed on your prescription label it should be pretty easy to find the list of inactive ingredients. I hope this helps and feel free to write back!

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...
