antibiotics: does this make me tired?

I've been on Doxy for a few weeks now and I've been very tired lately. Just wondering if there is any correlation and that if it's possible that Doxy might be the cause of my fatigue

Antibiotics will make you very tired. It made me drowsy every time I took it.

Re: antibiotics: does this make me tired?

I've been on Adoxa (antibiotics) for about 3 months now and all I want to do is lay down on the couch!! I don't seem to have any energy whatsoever, even though I eat well. I find everything a chore.

I've never made the connection between fatigue and antibiotics - I just thought I'm being a lazy azz!!!

The funny thing too is that its summer and this is usually the time of year when I feel most energetic. But even when its nice out, i just want to stay home and rest.

antibiotics have always made me a bit lazy, especially doxycycline. it was worst about an hour after taking it and was pretty bad for about an hour or two i just would lay there feeling dizzy. how long have you been taking it for?

It's going to be my 8th week on Doxy, but it's only recently that I made the connection of my tiredness and the drug. I thought it was coz of summer's coming and the heat was making me lazy. well i guess the drug is to blame! are you still on doxy? how did it work for you?

Im on doxy now and it makes me tired and lazy. If I don't notice an improvement in the next month I will stop taking it.
