Pill esophagitis: Doxycline can cause an esophagitis which is inflammation of the esophagus. This is usually self limited, and can be relieved by medications prescribed by your doctor.

Is it possible to first experience side effects after a week of being on doxycycline? I suddenly have bad unexplained stomach cramps whenever I eat.
Possible: Doxycycline can certainly cause gut upset and it may begin several days after beginning treatment. This may occur if you aren't always careful to take with bland food and adequate liquid. Spicy food, empty stomach makes stomach cramps more likely. But avoid antacids which can bind the antibiotic & keep it from being absorbed. If symptoms persist, though check with your doctor! ...Read more

Can doxycycline hyclate 100mg twice daily for 9 days cause distended abdomen. If so, is it a dangerous side effect, should I discontinue taking it?
Bloated: It's possible that 10 days of doxycycline caused abdominal bloating and it's worth asking your physician if you can safely discontinue it as he/she knows why it was prescribed and whether you need any more antibiotic treatment.As long as you don't have associated abdominal pain, vomiting or stoppage of bowel movement, there is no present danger. ...Read more
Probably yes, but...: ...there are differences in the kinds of bacteria best treated with these two antibiotics. If you are having stomach problems with doxycycline and your doctor has prescribed cefadroxil instead, go ahead -- it should be easier on your stomach. But don't make the change on your own, only with your doctor's advice. In the meantime, you can lessen doxy's effect on the stomach by taking it with food. ...Read more

Discuss w doctor: You need to discuss this with the dermatologist seeing you. I realize that some doctors are not the greatest communicators in the world, but if you persist you should be able to get a satisfactory response. Best wishes. ...Read more
Taken 2 doses of Doxycycline, now I have stomach pain, vomited and a runny tummy. What should I do?
Probiotics: Consider probiotics when taking antibiotics. Multiple strain products provide more balance than single strain. You need to have enough of the probiotic to make a difference - billions of viable bacteria per gram is better than millions. Cultures need to be alive - except for greek or bulgarian yogurt & specialized probiotic yogurts – the average yogurt has mostly dead cultures. Take care. ...Read more
Treated for chlamydia, 2 pills azithromycine, 2 weeks of doxycycline, lower right abdomen still in pain after treatment, do I still have it? Only symptom I had w/ chlamydia, could the test have been wrong?
Pain after tx: It's unlikely the test was worng - not impossible, but very unlikely. As to whether you still have it, chlamydia symptoms can range from none to severe pain/fever/illness. So the leftover pain may be peristent infection, or just inflamation in the area where the infection was. That inflammation takes time to clear up after the infection is treated. I would ask doc if need to be tested for cure. ...Read more

By the way, the proper term is sulfa allergy not sulfate (which is not known to be allergenic) but this or IBS has nothing to do with your doxy side effect. ...Read more
Can doxycycline mono hydrate cause my nausea and upper stomach and back pain? I take it in 50mg for my acne alone with some meds for my add. Help?
Stop the doxy: If you think it is the doxy, then stopping it for a week or 10 days makes sense (and if everything clears consider trying it a second time just to be sure). Doxycycline can cause esophagus and stomach irritation (the chest tightness and stomach pain) and worry about what is wrong, the fatigue. ...Read more
Wbc 7.7, rbc 4.6, neutro 48%, lymph 33%, high abs eosphinils 1024, all else normal. Had diahrrea/stomach pain 1month. On doxycycline. What's happening?
Big picture: The high eosinophil count should just raise an eyebrow to the possibility of your having met a worm -- perhaps strongyloides or ascaris. Was a diarrheal stool sent for ova / parasites? Beyond this, we're not going to be able to do much with this. Lab reference ranges are set so that several percent of normals fall outside on either end ...Read more
My Dr suspects IBD (due to stool sample result) - awaiting colonoscopy. Taking Doxycycline for Lyme. Am I likely to get C Diff? Currently have upper abdominal cramps, are they normal with Doxycycline?
