I have been browsing the net lately because Ive had the symptoms of esophagitis. After three doctor visits in just as many days, I was finally informed that tetracycline has some bad side-effects. I did some research and found out that 1-10% of those that take it suffer from esophagitis (inflammation) and esophageal ulcers. I stopped Doxycin (a brand) yesterday and hopefully this EXCRUCIATING pain will go away. I haven't been able to eat/drink much of anything let alone swallow my own spit.
My advice, get off that acne medication immediately... (youve probably already figured this out since your post is from January)
