Can I take both doxycycline 100 mg. And nitrofurantoin mcr 50 mg. For a kidney and u.t.i. infection.

Can I take both doxycycline 100 mg. And nitrofurantoin mcr 50 mg. For a kidney and u.t.i. infection.

Unusual treatment: This is an unusal combination of drugs. Your kidney infection and UTI are the same thing. Nitrofurantoin should be used only for lower tract (bladder) but not kidney infections. Doxycycline is a somewhat unusual drug for any UTI. Also, UTIs are uncommon in males. Are you sure you don't have NGU or prostatitis? Doxy is more common for these than for kidney infection. Discuss w/ your doctor. ...Read more

Is it safe to take 100mg doxycycline hyclate with 300 mg clindamycin?

Is it safe to take 100mg doxycycline hyclate with 300 mg clindamycin?

Yes, it's safe.: There is no specific interaction. However, with all antibiotics, you should be aware that prolonged use of multiple antibiotics does tend to destroy the normal gut flora (normal bacteria in your intestinal tract) and allows for overgrowth of one particularly BAD type of bacteria called clostridium difficile (C. Diff). This can lead to prolonged bouts of diarrhea. So, be careful in the long term. ...Read more

I've just finished my 7 day treatment with Doxycycline Hyclate, how long does it take for the abnormal discharge to stop coming out?

Varies.: Cannot say in your particular case, but generally, it would be decreasing by about the end of the seven day treatment. If indeed the tetracycline worked on what was causing it. It is mostly effective on chlamydia, but less so on gonorrhea and not very effective on yeast infection nor non-specific vaginitis. ...Read more

I'm taking doxycycline hyclate for bronchitis. I feel a bit shaky after I take this medicine my breathing is normal but is this a side effect?

Doxycycline: Unless you are treating an acute exacerbation of chronic bronchitis the doxy is probably unnecessary as acute bronchitis is >95% viral. The side-effects of this drug may include weakness, nausea and other symptoms and discontinuing it might not be a bad idea, but the best thing to do is to consult with the doctor who ordered it. ...Read more

Check with doctor: Each immunosuppressive drug has its own drug interaction profile and thus you will need to check with your doctor re. Such interaction. I am more concerned about doxycycline slowing down the breakdown of the immunosuppressive agent than vice versa. ...Read more
