  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • Severe neck and shoulder pain began on day 5 of taking the 100mg dose 2x daily. Took drug for 13 days of the 14 day Rx. On the 14th day I went back to the doctor, who then gave me 2 other Rx's for the pain. The shoulder pain has dissipated, but the neck pain is lingering. My first day off the drug was 7/23, and today is 8/6 and I still have to use ice and/or diclofenac sodium to get relief. The pain has gone from severe (7/23) to least/moderate (today).

  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • I came to your website searching for information and answers with regards to neck pain and doxycycline hyclate. I took it in a very low/non-antibiotic form (Oracea) for about 2 1/2 years; after about a month of stopping it, the neck pain disappeared. At the time, I attributed the pain cessation to some natural supplements (turmeric, coq10, omegas 3,6,9) I had coincidentally begun taking. I was pain free for about a year until last week when i began taking doxycyline hyclate (for acne rosacea). Within 3 days, the neck pain returned. I stopped taking it and drew the conclusion between the 2 doxy meds. It has been 4 days and i am in worse pain. It has also traveled down my back and left arm. I hope this helps with your study, and I hope and pray somebody is able to find a treatment soon! I was so upset when i scrolled down to the "treatment" section and it said "n/a."
