Could a rash be a withdrawal symptom after being on tetracylene for 3 months?

Could a rash be a withdrawal symptom after being on tetracylene for 3 months?

Very unlikely: Tetracycline (tcn) is an antibiotic, and is not known to have withdrawal symptoms. A rash just after using tcn for 3 months is unlikely to be a withdrawal symptom. However, the rash could be due to an allergy to tcn, even though tcn was stopped. Persons allergic to tcn may also be allergic to Doxycycline & minocycline. Also, the rash might be just a coincidence and have nothing to do with tcn. ...Read more

My wife was on hydrocodone for 3 weeks after a ureteroscopy and now has symptoms of withdrawal. Should we be concerned or will symptoms go away?

My wife was on hydrocodone for 3 weeks after a ureteroscopy and now has symptoms of withdrawal. Should we be concerned or will symptoms go away?

Yes, in about 2 days: An addiction to prescription pain killers can occur in 2 to 10 days. The body can readjust itself after the drugs are out of the system. Hydrocodone has a half life of about 4 hours, so only 6 % is left after about 16 hours. Usually, one more day later, the symptoms should abate. ...Read more
