Hi Stan. What dose of Doxy will you be infusing? It can take much longer to infuse than Rocephin. Do you have a PICC line or a port? From what I understand, IV Doxy can be caustic to the veins and is better infused through a port. I suggest talking with your doctor about this.
Hi Ticker, he has started me out on 50 mg, for two days, then 100 mg twice daily. The problem I don't like I have to mix the Doxy powder with 250 mg of Sodium Chloride every time. The Rocephin was already mixed. So that stinks.
I am infusing through a picc line. So will there be caustic problems using it this way?
