    My son also had stomach problems when he was taking Doryx. You need to call your dr and see if there is something else they might want to try. It sounds like you are having an allergic reaction. Take care

    Re: been taking DORYX _side affects HELP ME

    Ok wow that sounds scary. It really does sound like a reaction! I have just started taking doxycycl for about 4 weeks and I am not seeing a difference. I have headaches everyday and my stomach hurts as well if I don't eat. I have a derm appointment today at 3:00 and I might ask him if I can go on something else. My face has not changed except for a few more pimples. Plus for a week I was also taking predinose, yesterday was my last day. I just don't understand why I haven't seen any results yet. Upsetting

    I know EXACTLY what you're talking about. First of all, Doryx (doxycycline) will make you nauseas if you don't take it with food. so take it with food! Second of all, the dots on your face are not a reaction. It's called Petechiae. It's broken blood vessels caused by violent vomiting. You were not getting enough oxygen to that part of your face while you were throwing up, and it caused the dots to form (this has happened to me before and the nurse told me that's what it was. I guess you can also get it from crying heavily). So don't worry- the dots will gradually fade away over 3-4 days. Hope this helps ease your mind!!! Just make sure you eat with your doxy!!! Also, switching over to Minocycline might help-- I switched and now I can take it on an empty stomach with no nausea whatsoever. Good luck!

    Re: been taking DORYX _side affects HELP ME

    Kc1985, the same thing happened when I first started taking Doxycycline.
    Whats interesting about Doryx, thats essentially the same thing as Doxycycline.
    My Derm said Doryx is better on the stomach then Doxycycline when you first take it.
    The first 3 or 4 days I took Doxycycline.
    I had the worst stomach ache.
    Then my body got used to it.
    Now when i take Doxycycline, its like taking a vitamin.
    I feel nothing.
    I would definitely recommend not taking Doxycycline or Doryx on an empty stomach when you first take it. Say the first 4 or 5 days.
    I didn't get any of these rashes or redness you mentioned.
    How long have you been on Doryx?
    I would also say, Doxycycline has done wonders for getting rid of acne.
    Doxycyline is amazing at getting rid of acne on the face and body.

    How long was it til you saw results on the doxy? I have been on it for about 4 weeks and haven't noticed any change in my acne except for it getting worse.

    Re: been taking DORYX _side affects HELP ME

    I would say within a week and half my acne started to go down.
    Once my body got used to the Doxy, the acne started to clear.
    Now when i take Doxycycline if i have acne.
    It works immediately.
    You've been on it for a month and its not working.
    Let me ask this.
    Do you still get stomach ache's when you take the Doryx.
    How does your body react now when you take Doryx?

    Yes I still get stomach aches!! Headache's are bad too!
    I'm starting to think that maybe doxy works better on men. I really haven't herd of any women on this drug that are doing well but alot of men say it's great. I'm going to do a post askin the women if they r on it had results.
