Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • Started on a 10-day course of Vibra-tabs (doxycycline). Pharmacist didn't say whether to take with food or not. 5 days in, facial flushing started, at least 3 times per day. No fever, but heat. Anxiety and Insomnia started right after that. Doctor told me to keep with it. Finished the 10-day course and side effects continue sporadically 2 weeks later. Still no appetite and occasional anxiety, with nightly waking at 3-4 am and not being able to lie still.


  • From this study (3 years ago):

  • I have been taking celexa for about 8 months for social anxiety. I have been doing really well. Until I started taking omnicef, for some reason I am going back into my irrational cycle, and having a hard time leaving my house.
