Does vibramycin (doxycycline) and metronidazole together cause yeast infection? Or should I take them seperately?

Does vibramycin (doxycycline) and metronidazole together cause yeast infection? Or should I take them seperately?

Possibly: Both are antibiotics and can suppress the normal flora ("good" bacteria) in the GI tract. When this occurs, sometimes yeast and other bacteria tend to experience an overgrowth. If this happens, we can experience a "yeast infection". If you believe this is occurring, one should check with the doctor prescribing the antibiotics for further advice. Good luck! ...Read more

My boyfriend was given doxycycline for urethritis, however is insurance wont cover it. Can he take metronidazole instead?

Low cost, no?: Metronidazole is not the same as doxycycline; I'm not at all certain that's an appropriate substitution. Doxycycline is a very inexpensive drug; I don't mean to be casual with your money but a doxy prescription shouldn't be more than $20 approx., can your boyfriend really not prioritize getting the prescribed drug? ...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 ?

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

Is metronidazole, injection of ceftriaxone and zithromycin enough to treat PID not caused by an STI? I'm 2 weeks pregnant so can't take doxycycline.

Here are some ...: Clinically, the antibiotic treatment you've received should cover all common PID-related bacteria. At this time, you should direct & bring all your existing concern to the treating Doc for analysis, follow-up, modification, etc. Further online chat, I'm afraid, will further confuse you with more anxiety and fear instead of help you. So, keep a close contact with your Doc so to refine the care.... ...Read more

Does metronidazole work better than doxycycline at curing UTI?

UTI Treatment: In my experience I usually take a sample of urine and do an analysis of the urine. If I suspect an infection, or in the patient has symptoms of an infection, I send the urine to the lab for a culture which will tell me if bacteria grow and what type of bacteria. Also, this will tell me what antibiotic is the best to treat the infection.Metronidazole is not usually used for UTI. ...Read more
