  • Does doxycycline really effect the effectiveness of oral birth control?
    My dermatologist prescribed doxycycline to me for acne just recently and told me that there are no - with a huge emphasis on NO - studies that have proven that it affects birth control. I have been taking oral birth control now for over 7 years and I've learned that any antibiotics can affect it. When I asked my dermatologist, he told me not to even listen to the pharmacist's precaution and that she didn't know what she was talking about. Everything I read online and even the labels on the Rx cautions that it will affect it. It's hard not to believe a professional, but I am worried about an unplanned pregnancy. And I don't want to change my sexual lifestyle. Although it's personal and I believe this to be unnecessary to explain to every health professional I meet, I have been in a healthy monogamous relationship for 3+ years and I don't see why I would need to change my sexual lifestyle for an acne problem. Is there any studies that prove is does or doesn't affect the birth control? Is there any other prescription I can take that won't affect the birth control? Thank you!

  • Urinary track infection and bydureon
    After 7 weeks of nausea vomiting and diarrhea I got a uti that was hard to get rid of. I also have an inflammation of sacaril nerve. Have had antibiotics and steroids. It is still hurting after 2 months.Don't know if this is connected but is a fact.
  • My experience with lyme
    My final semester at college-

    Woke up to extreme inflammation in what was determined to be a portion of my trapezius on the left side length of my next. It was accompanied by severely swollen lymph nodes throughout my entire body. I went about my day with what to me was seemingly a bad neck cramp and oncoming cold. In the afternoon I decided to participate in Track practice and what occurred after I am unsure about in terms of its relation to me performing physically or an autoimmune response against my peripheral nervous system. The next morning I woke up the left side of my trapezius was completely dysfunctional from its attachment to my cranium all the way down to the mid point of my back. It was accompanied by inflammation and sore pain at the point where the next connects to the shoulder girdle. Over the course of the next 8 months I went undiagnosed with Lyme, having seen neurologists and orthopedics in an attempt to find a solution. Reflecting on the first three months, I experienced significant effects on my emotional stability and cognitive capability. I would have severe mood swings--rage, depression, excitement-- and I would have difficulty with memory and train of thought- all of which can be confirmed by multitude of classmates. By the 8 month mark I had began to feel mild joint pain, particularly in areas I had formerly injured in athletic activity (ankles, lower back). At this point, my accessory nerve had not regenerated in terms of the portion affecting my trapezius, didn't regain any lost muscle function. I saw my physician, who discovered the Lyme infection. I took doxycycline over the next 3 months and saw significant improvement in my trapezius, which was accompanied by a decrease in lymph node size, as proven by comparison of MRIs. My fatigue dissipated and my moods/cognition returned to normal. I've regained about 70% of the function I formerly had with my trapezius (as compared to 0% prior to treatment). I wanted to write this because I have yet to see a similar case, understand the ambiguity of Lyme disease and the array of conditions it causes.
  • Symptons from taking doxycyclin
    I recently went in for a physical, everything was normal except my Creatinine levels. I had severe symptoms from burning hands/knuckles to feeling very tingly like cold needles. Also, burned very easily from sun even with 50 sun screen applied. Should I be worried about the Creatinine levels be abnormally high?
  • I have twice developed a uti after injection of prolia
    I have taken Prolia for 2 years..4 injections. After the last 2 injections within 2 weeks I developed severe cystitis and had to go on course of antibiotics. I am fearful of continuing this medication as the last infection caused me to be treated at the emergency room.
  • Flagyl and hair loss
    I was miserable already but the side effects of this medicine only compounded it. I have had severe diarrhea, stomach cramps, nausea, a horrible metallic taste in my mouth and worst of all I have patches of hair that have completely fallen out!! I am horrified that this medicine is even prescribed to people if these side effects are profound. I will be calling my dr for a new antibiotic, and I will NEVER take this "medicine" again!
