Acid reflux or inflammation from Doxy


I don't often post as I'm early into cap but read posts almost every day. Thanks to everyone that do post as it's so encouraging and helpful. I hope to give the same positive encouragement In the not too distant future when I'm feeling better. An ENT dr told me today I had acid reflux. I had a gastroscopy last year and all was ok. could anyone tell me if it could be from the Doxycycline. I take caps and two together on an empty stomach or with something light. I have no symptoms or discomfort. He prescribed protium.


Good to "see" you, NalaOthers will come and give you good advice.  The main thing that I will say is to at least drink LOTS of water with Doxy!  Most people say take it with food, too.  If I don't drink at least ten ounces of water, it will come up in forty-two minutes every time.Rica

3/9 Symptoms returning. Began 5 abx protocol 5/9 Rifampin 600, Amox 1000, Doxy 200, MWF Azith 250, flagyl 1000 daily. Began Sept 04 PPMS EDSS 6.7 Now good days EDSS 1 Mind, like parachute, work only when open. Charlie Chan  In for the duration.&am

Hi Nala,I thought I had a strong stomach but I can't take foxy without food, it makes me sick. Probiotic is recommended on the protocol as antibiotics kill your good intestinal bacteria.Moggie

thank you for replying Rica. I will take extra water and a little food with the doxy for now and take some aloeVera. I will reconsider the Protium. Kind regardsNala

Doxy is "corrosive"... ADRAC in australia had a bunch of reports of the tablets sticking in throat and burning nasty holes...For this reason I labelled all doxy as followsTake in the middle of a main meal with a full glass of liquid. Remain upright for 1/2hour after dose.have some food, lots of liquid and try not to bend over for 30mins

Great advice Liltiger.   Louise    It is what I do when taking doxy otherwise I vomit. not to mention the severe gastric pain.

I have recently had a little reflux and have had no prob with Doxy same as you. I have been on it 1 1/2 years. Seems my gall bladder is stressed. You might check that.

Thank you all for the good advise and suggestions. i will take it with main meal for a while then maybe later take with evening meal. I thought when it wasn't causing me any discomfort it wasn't doing any damage. I did always take lots of water & make sure I'm sitting up. Luckypenny, how did you know your gall bladder was stressed. Nala
