Doxycycline-Lyme
« on: April 25, 2014, 03:07:10 PM »
So, my doctor prescribed me doxycycline for my tick bite. She said based on the pictures it was a common tick and not to worry. No head parts buried underneath the skin. However, she want me to take doxycycline after 2 1/2 days of being bitten as a preventative measure. I took the pills around 11:00 am. It was two 100mg pills. Around 12 I threw up and it was practically water/foam. The second throw up was clear liquid and maybe the size of a small pancake on the floor. No solids. Should I be ok? Do I need to redo the doxycycline? I didn't see any solids as I said before it was all clear and foamy and barely anything. Should my body absorb some regardless?

C'mon guys. I don't want to bother my doctor and can't until Monday. Don't want to go to google because it's completely un reliable.. A headache is brain cancer there.

I think just keep taking it as normal.  Maybe try taking it with some light food.  Antibiotics are awful on my stomach, too; I feel your pain.

Molly, I only took 200mg as a preventative measure. It was taken approximately 65 hours after the tick was removed. I have no more antibiotics.

Ah, sorry, didn't get that.  I'm not too swift sometimes ;)  Either way I think it'd be okay especially since you're super low risk to begin with.

Antibiotics are harder on some than others and they are always tough on the stomach. I would not worry about having lyme unless you get a red bullseye rash at the site of the bite. That is the main indicator that you contracted lyme's from a tick.

It's true, dude. My friend's been complaining about taking antibiotics for strep and it's, 'making her feel worse than before'. Some people react poorly to antibiotics.

i dont think throwing up means they are out of your system. i can see the antibiotics making you sick while taking them. several antibiotics say to eat with food.
