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.

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...

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.
