Been on Doxycycline &Metronidazole since Monday for PID. Been wearing pads & today my vagina lips are swollen tender & red. What should I do?

Possible yeast

Doxycycline
When a woman is taking antibiotics it is common to get a yeast infection. Symptoms of yeast include itching, swelling, redness and thick white vaginal discharge. However there are other types of vaginal infections. Women who think they have a yeast infection will sometimes use an over the counter yeast medication or see their doc for an exam to see what is going on.

Will I be ok if I just drink a beer or two while on metronidazole and doxycycline?

Do not drink beer

Doryx
with Metronidazole (Flagyl). it can impair your metabolism of alcohol, leading to build up of acetaldehyde in your bloodstream, which can lead to irregular heart rate, flushing, vomiting, or even death. It's called a disulfiram-like reaction. With other medications, it is best not to drink alcohol while taking medications.

I was given metronidazole and doxycycline for my PID. Will those cure my UTI/bladder infection as well?

No.

Doxy/metro have no effect on UTIs; you should probably take some nitrofurantoin or a cephalosporin, or bactrim for that. Talk to your doctor!

First treatment with chylmadia was apo doxycycline for ten days. Still positive. Mow on apo metronidazole and azifast. If fails what do u suggest?

The azifast

Doryx
should get rid of it , if it does not then there are other antibiotics the metronidazole does not do anything for the chylmydia but works for BV and anerorbic bacteria, if u get resisitent Chyl, your doc can always refer u to a infectious disease doc, the most common cause for perisistent chyl after txment is re- exposure to someone who still has the chyl so I assume your partner was also treated

Will drinking alcohol while taking antibiotics deter their effectiveness ? Or will it make you more drowsy/nauseous . Metronidazole and doxycycline

Severe vomiting

Open-uri20131121-26563-vgxnga
Like trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole , metronidazole and alcohol can cause a disulfiram -like reaction similar the drug, Antabuse - resulting in violent vomiting. Doxycycline in itself, can cause severe nausea and vomiting. As a result, you will not likely keep you medication down - which ultimately restricts the effectiveness of the vomited antibiotic.
