It's only day 2 of Doxy. I've taken 500 mg thus far and already i'm feeling really grim.
Headache like you can't believe
My joints are killing me. Shooting back pains. I feel totally in a fog. I walked around Whole Foods last night looking for new options to my new eating pattern...and I was so overwhelmed and tired that i almost threw a fit.
I'm drinking water like it's my job. I take my vitamins, probiotics in the morning....I assumed I'd start not feeling well in a week's time, not on day 2 of ABX!

Reason: Added legnth of sickness
Hello Aimiloo! Sorry to hear that you're feeling so bad. I felt like garbage early on when I took Doxy as well. I started on a lighter dose for a little bit then worked up to 400mgs/day. It is not at all fun until your body adjusts to it, but hang in there it does get better. Tho everyone's different, you should see some improvement soon. I took Ceftin later on and my body didn't dig that stuff too much either. Hopefully within the next few days(or hopefully a day or two!) you should start feeling better. This disease sucks but try to just take it one day at a time and it WILL get better. I ate non-dairy yogurt(I'm vegan) everyday along with maxbiotic and it really seemed to help my stomach. Try to keep positive and all of us dealing with this on this board are hoping to hear that you're feeling better soon! M.
soooo sorry to hear you are feeling so awful. when hubby took his antib's he got sooo sick it wasn't funny. you can always drop the dose. Hubby chose to stick it through and try to get better faster. Myself, I can't do that. I cut my dose to what i can handle. I am a mom and really can't afford to be unable to function.
Hope you feel much better soon. We kept a diary/journal and it helped us see what was going on. Remember you ARE getting better even tho you are getting worse. Weird disease!
I'm sticking with it! Those first 48 hours were rough. Now i'm just experienceing pains here and there.
The worst is the pain under my shoulderblades. A few days ago it was my whole left side. Then it moved to the middle of my spine. Last night it was HORRIBLE in my right shoulder blade. I had to take ibuprofen with codeine. I thought for sure it would be a nightmare today.
Nope, it's back to my left side. AAAAAAAAAAAH!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ah well, it's been 8 years. I'm not going to feel better over night!
