Follow: Up with your Urologist He may if indicated consider cystoscopy and post voidal scan
Sometimes: Doxy is a good antibiotic because it also has anti-inflammatory properties. But so many other thing may be going on that you need close follow up with your urologist.

Is it ok to take both a Medrol (methylprednisolone) dose pack and doxycycline safely together to treat a rash on your face?
Depends on…: What the rash is. If acute acne flare, the 2 drugs may be used without interaction. (caution: do not take meds with grapefruit juice as that can cause an interaction). If you don't know what the rash is, see your pcp or a dermatologist before using the antibiotic. For ex, poison ivy rash is helped with Medrol (methylprednisolone) dosepak but antibiotic does no good; may create resistant bacteria.
4-10 days: You should wait until your body has completly eliminated the medication. This is dependent on the dose, the half life and your bodies ability to eliminate the drug. If sun toxic then safe to wait about 10 days, wear at least a 30 sunblock when you go out.

Milk (calcium) is said to interact with Doxycycline, actually reducing its absorption. Can I have milk and cereal morning and Doxycycline afternoon?
Doxycycline: Absorption of tetracycline is in stomach and upper small intestine. Absorption of tetracyclines may be impaired by milk products, aluminum hydroxide gels, sodium bicarbonate, calcium and magnesium salts and iron preparations. The mechanisms responsible for decreased absorption seems to be chelation and an increase in gastric pH. It is therefore advisable to take doxycycline on an empty stomach.
