Side effects: Antibiotics can have side effects. The question is 'why' are you taking doxycycline? There are other antibiotics that can be used for treatment. If you're having a hard time with this one, you should be able to switch to something else. I would call your doctor to try and get help. It may be possible to try again later with this same antibiotic. Drink some ginger tea to soothe your stomach.

Can I take doxycycline mono 100 mg with food? It says take on empty stomach. Why?

Can I take doxycycline mono 100 mg with food? It says take on empty stomach. Why?

Food decreases: Absorption of the doxycycline. Dairy products bind to the doxyclcline and keep it from being absorbed. If you need to take it with food for GI symptoms take it with 1-2 crackers

OK with food: Doxycycline absorption from the intestinal tract is not significantly affected by food. In fact, patients often are instructed to take it with food, to prevent symptoms like yours.

Bad reaction: Not sure why you are taking it but it sounds like you are not tolerating it very well. Discuss with your doctor for a different antibiotic.

Does taking yasmine birth control before bed on an empty stomach cause vomitting?

Does taking yasmine birth control before bed on an empty stomach cause vomitting?

Depends: Ocp are associated with nausea and vomiting in some patients, and is thus one of the more common side effects listed. For many, taking ocp prior to going to bed at night is helpful as the levels are higher while patient is asleep and less likely to be affected. While taking ocp with food in stomach may improve this side effect, many women don't have to. Thus, depends on individual.

If it was just: Transient, then it is probably just due to a spasm in your diaphragm. If it remained for any significant amount of time, I would recommend seeing a physician.

Seek medical help: You are in need of treatment ASAP. You have opiate dependence and experience withdrawal. You are no longer doing opiates to get high, you are now chasing after them to keep from getting sick or experiencing withdrawal. There is help and you deserve recovery. You are at risk of death from accidental overdose. Please seek treatment as soon as possible.

Can you vomit on an empty stomach if you have a stomach upset and how long will it take for vomiting to occur?

Can you vomit on an empty stomach if you have a stomach upset and how long will it take for vomiting to occur?

Yes: Your stomach makes acid juices and also bile coming from your liver can move up into the stomach when you vomit. The vomiting depends on what is causing it. You can have "dry-heaves" where nothing comes out. If this is going on for over a day or you are very sick, see your doctor or go to the er. I see you are on tetracycline, that can make you nauseous.

If you take a pill on an empty stomach, can it cause vomiting?

If you take a pill on an empty stomach, can it cause vomiting?

No-: Vomiting is caused by something that locally irritates the opal cavity or intestinal tract or a central nervous system stimulant such as a noxious smell. That activates a center in the brain. It can also be caused by intestinal blockage or intense pain. It has little to do with what is in the G.I. tract. The noxious stimulant causes a reversal of the usual pattern of intestinal motion

Go see your doctor: If you keep vomiting bile, even after drinking just water, it's time to go see your doctor and undergo endoscopy (egd) to look for possible obstruction causing bilious emesis (vomit).

Gastritis: You may have inflammation of the stomach lining (gastritis), peptic ulcer, gall bladder problems or even pancreatic problems and you should be evaluated by your physician or a gastroenterologist as soon as possible in view of persistent symptoms. In the meantime follow a light bland diet and drink flat ginger ale to control nausea and vomiting until you're examined.

Green emesis on an empty stomach. Did not feel nauseous before started vomiting but vomited four times in last hour?

Green emesis: The green is from bile. When did you eat last? Did you fall? Eat somewhere new? Have abdominal pain? If persists > 2 hours at this rate (4x per hour) go to ER. If confused or blurred visions go right now. May be gastroenteritis, gallbladder, appendicitis, obstruction (especially if Crohns) or if head trauma/ severe headache from increased pressure in head.

I'm always having this urge to vomit if I have an empty stomach and even after I've eaten but nothing comes out, what do I have?

I'm always having this urge to vomit if I have an empty stomach and even after I've eaten but nothing comes out, what do I have?

Don't forcibly vomit: Vomiting reflex is controlled by 2 units in brain medulla--one receives nerve impulses from GI tract, the other is a chemical receptor. Both have nerve connections to not only GI tract (pharynx, mesenteric vessels, bile ducts) but also from brain corticobulbar areas that mediate smells, sights, ; taste. Maybe you have gastritis, but maybe your symptoms have little to do with GI tract. Get checked.
