Jaundice (icterus) after 3 weeks Doxy
I would appreciate any feedback from somebody, who developed icterus (jaundice), while taking Doxy. I started in November 2010 with Doxy in the first week 50mg daily, in the second week 75mg daily and in the third week 100mg daily. After the third week I started to feel very bad (dizziness, fever, trend to collapse, shivering, feeling very depressed, the blood sugar level was increased, although I am not diabetic, my skin became yellow but the sclera remained white). I stopped the abx immediatly and now after 4 weeks, my fever is gone, the blood sugar is ok but my skin is still yellow.
Does anybody had a similar experience or has anybody an idea? What does this icterus means and what can I do? Personally, I think it’s a liver problem caused by Doxy.
I would be very thankful for any opinion or experience sharing.
