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. ...Read more

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

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'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. ...Read more

Why do I feel nauseated after taking vitamins? I make sure to eat first and don't take them on an empty stomach. Feel like throwing up :(

Why do I feel nauseated after taking vitamins? I make sure to eat first and don't take them on an empty stomach. Feel like throwing up :(

Not unusual: There are several reasons why taking a multivitamin causes nausea. Vitamins C, E and iron all tend to cause more irritation to your stomach. Be sure not to over dose on these (RDA is 75 mg vitamin C, 15 mg vitamin E, 18 mg iron). Fat solubles can accumulate; stick to RDA of vitamins A-700 mcg, D-600 IU, E-15 mg, K-90 mcg. Coatings slow absorption causing irritation. Try a gummie or chewable. ...Read more

Get help : You need to be seen by your pcp or a GI doctor to find cause of pain. Glad you're feeling better, but you're so young to be having possible complications from heavy drinking. Build support starting with a trusted doc, family member, close friend and get to an AA meeting. You'll be surrounded by others, all ages, who understand: http://www.aa.org/pages/en_US ...Read more

Yes like most: medications, empty stomach + pills = potential disaster. As a rule of thumb, I ask my patients to take most pills with something like a small piece of bread or rice to help soothe any irritation to the gastric lining -- as well as to increase the digestive process. Except for a few medicines (thyroid, anti-acid meds, nausea meds) you should remember that rule. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap. ...Read more

I took my citalopram about 30 minutes ago on an empty stomach. And for some reason i threw up. I feel fit and well. Should i take another?

Celexa (citalopram).: If you vomited it up almost immediately then you likely did not absorb very much of it. If that is the case, you can take another one but would suggest that you take it with food. You will likely run out of medication earlier - as a result - so let your doctor know. ...Read more
