From this study (2 months 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.
