Can flagyll and cipro (ciprofloxacin) cause thyroiditis?

Having Zinc Acetate & Doxycycline-LB tabs, 1.5 hours after meal, for acne. Have severe nausea & discomfort after having tabs, for 10-15 mins. Advice?

Having Zinc Acetate & Doxycycline-LB tabs, 1.5 hours after meal, for acne. Have severe nausea & discomfort after having tabs, for 10-15 mins. Advice?

Yes: Get yourself onto a better acne regimen. Stop taking the zinc; it's generally bad for you, probably won't touch your acne, and it's probably making you sick. That leaves you on just tetracycline, and you must not take just an antibiotic for acne. Add topical benzoyl peroxide. If the tetracycline makes you sick, or this doesn't help, consider isotretinoin if severe and/or a different regimen. ...Read more

M.D. visit: Another sputum sample to determine whether there is a secondary infection is indicated, and possibly a chest x ray to rule out pneumonia. Your history of smoking also makes it likely that you have underlying lung problems which can cause a chronic cough and respiratory symptoms.
