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

  • From this study (1 month ago):

  • My wife took these meds one morning, then that evening she took the Doxycycline and around 05:00 hours the next morning her throat started closing and she Called Kaiser Permanente, getting the answering service. After describing her symptom,which kept getting progressively worse, the medical professional told her to call an ambulance immediately. I proceeded, fortunately, myself to take her to Medical Center of Aurora (Colorado) where they had to perform an endotracheal intubation because her throat had by then closed so as to prevent an intubation. She spent the next week recovering from complications like pneumonia, blood sugar gone wild, blood pressure not under control (after stopping Lisinopril/HCTZ & the new one Doxycycline, which I think did it all, and others I forget. In short is this new? I could not find anything re on the web in February (02/05/2014) when it all started.
