Monocycline and doxycycline have caused depression. Should i risk Accutane (isotretinoin)? What are my other options?

Accutane: Accutane has been associated with risk of severe depression, including suicidal ideation. You need to discuss this frankly with your physician, and have care plans in place for any eventuality. Your physician can work with you also to develop other options instead. ...Read more

Doxycycline no prob: But, combining Prozac, (fluoxetine) Valium and MJ with alcohol or other central nervous system depressants can cause increased sedation and potentially dangerous respiratory depression and death. You should avoid alcohol altogether. ...Read more

Is 1g of azithromycin and 400 mg of cefixime good against gonorrhea? Tried doxy+cipro already and it didn't work. I'm in Thailand, allergic penicilin

Is 1g of azithromycin and 400 mg of cefixime good against gonorrhea? Tried doxy+cipro already and it didn't work. I'm in Thailand, allergic penicilin

Should be OK: Gonorrhea bacteria in SE Asia, including Thailand, often are resistant to both ciprofloxacin and doxycycline, so no surprise they didn't work. Cefixime and azithromycin should be OK, but the best option would have been a shot of ceftriaxone 250 mg instead of cefixime. You should be retested in a couple of week to be sure it's gone; if not, see an STD expert and discuss ceftriaxone. Good luck. ...Read more

PID treatment: You have asked at least 3 questions about treatment of your PID. Those antibiotics will be effective against gonorrhea, chlamydia, and all the other bacteria typically involved in PID. Follow your doctor's advice about the best treatment in your particular case. There's no point in trying to get more advice on this forum. The answers won't change and you MUST discuss with your own doctor. ...Read more

I have strong BV and am resistant to metronidazole would combining metro and clindamycin cure bv.if so how much mg of each pill should I take?

Resistant bv: I believe that you should see your gyn for this. The bacteria can be cultured and sensitivities checked with a large number of antibiotics. You should take the one or two that your infection is sensitive to and take the full course so the infection is totally eradicated. ...Read more

Could antibiotic: Minomycin (in Australia), or minocycline hydrochloride, (prescribed as 3 month course - acne) cause suicidal tendencies/ depression?

Could antibiotic: Minomycin (in Australia), or minocycline hydrochloride, (prescribed as 3 month course - acne) cause suicidal tendencies/ depression?

Not likely, but: There've been some reported mood change effects - not common and severity is not mentioned. If you have a tendency toward this sort of intense depression, it might be wise to avoid this elective medication in favor of an alternative approach. Only you and your doctor know how crucial acne Tx is for you. One ting that may help is knowing it's not a meaningful depression - just short-term chemistry. ...Read more

Can adderral given 3 times a day 15 mg in addition to lamictal and klonopin (clonazepam) make someone with major depression mean, hostile and aggressive?

Can adderral given 3 times a day 15 mg in addition to lamictal
and klonopin (clonazepam) make someone with major depression mean, hostile and aggressive?

Side reactions?: I'm not quite sure what your problem is, but isn't it rather clear that the medications you are receiving are not really solving your problems? My guess is that your medication regimen is making you worse. You may want to see a board certified psychiatrist for this. If you were my patient, i could imagine first tapering and discontinuing those meds and seeing what you're like off of them. ...Read more

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
