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.

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...

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?
