They R fine together: Monodox is an antibiotic famously known as doxycycline. Toviaz (fesoterodine) is a long-termedication for overactive bladder (bladder spasm) and has no known interaction with monodox. I assume u are given Monodox for some type of infections, possibly 2x/day for about 10-14 days? So, I would take both as prescribed. If you experience significant side effects, consult doc.

I keep sinus infections and Levaquin (levofloxacin) doesn't fully get rid of them so is monodox the cure all my Dr claims?
Sorry, no cure-all: Recurrent sinusitis usually isn't the result only of infection. Typically allergy or partial blockage of a sinus opening is responsible for recurrent infections. Either levofloxacin (Levaquin) or doxycycline (Monodox) is likely to help any particular infection, but neither is better than the other, and probably neither would prevent all infections unless allergy or blockage is also cleared up. ...Read more
