I'm very allergic to penicillin and sulfa.I've been prescribed doxycycline and metronidazole to take post op for a hysterectomy. Are they safe for me ?

I'm very allergic to penicillin and sulfa.I've been prescribed doxycycline and metronidazole to take post op for a hysterectomy. Are they safe for me ?

Yes: As long as you are not allergic to them and avoid alcohol while taking metronidazole. Also avoid spending too much time in the sun on doxycycline (usually not an issue in winter, but if you live in a tropical climate you could get a sunburn even if you have dark complexion). Everything in life has risks vs benefits. The benefits of your meds are better than the risk of infection so I would take! ...Read more

Follow up visit: When treating PID the doctor usually sees the patient 48-72 hours to assess their level of pain and assess for fever to confirm the treatment is working. Treatment is not assessed based on the amount of cervical mucous or vaginal discharge. If you are feeling better then it is probably working ...Read more

Doxycycline monohydrate and metronidazole combined are making me throw up. Do i need to take both or can I just take one.Prescribed both ?

Doxycycline monohydrate and metronidazole combined are making me throw up. Do i need to take both or can I just take one.Prescribed both ?

Need other drug(s): Usually when these drugs are prescribed together it is because the chance of effectively treating your condition is much high if you take both. I would suspect the Doxycycline is responsible for the vomiting. I suggest you contact your provider who can suggest an alternative, either a substitute for one of your current drugs or something completely different. Good luck! ...Read more

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. ...Read more
