Comments for this study:

Sam (2 years ago):

Many tick bites in NC last month,-- eight(8) plus. Dr. there said to take Doxycyline 100 for 10 days if any suspect symptoms developed.

I am now back home in Thailand and lower back and butt muscle pain and stiffness has come on strongly.

I took my second Doxy pill a few hours ago and my penis is starting to become swollen with red inflammation.

I took an Aleve two hours ago, to fight the inflammation, until I find out what I should do?

Should I continue the doxycycline, but with an anti-inflammatory?

What anti-inflammatory should I take, when and how much?

Is there an effective substitute to the doxycycline that I can switch to?
I am a 73 and male

  • I have been having vaginal bleeding so my dr prescribed me this med. 100mg. I took with a full meal and more than one glass of water. My heart feels like it's racing and fluttering. It doesn't hurt, it's just really uncomfortable and a bit worrisome. I'm on Wellbutrin ext release 300 mg.

  • From this study (5 days ago):

  • I had a very severe illness, with fevers (103), myalgia, fatigue. It was triggered or made worse by sun exposure(my hands were sunburnt after kyaking on a vacation). Workup showed very abnormal hematology (myelo and lymphoblasts, platlet count over 700,000, anemia), very elevated acute phase reactants (sed rate 120, CRP 56, liver enzymes elevated). I also developed ANCA-P antibodies. The illness resolved within 1-2 months after stopping the doxycycline. However, I now have stage 3 CRF and wonder if it is from the drug induced lupus.
