Done with Doxy
I found out the hard way that the instructions provided with Doxycycline to take it on an empty stomach isn’t the best way to take it. It didn’t bother me at first, but the last couple days, I was starting to get really sick. I was taking it in the morning before breakfast and at night before bed.
I did some research and nearly everything I read advised to take it with food AND not to take it before lying down (i.e. right before bed). Apparently, it does a job on your esophogas if you don’t allow gravity to take it down.
So, ask your doc or pharmacist what they recommend or you might be in for some intestinal misery.
Took my final dose last night. Not sure it did anything, but have an appt with the ID next week to see what’s next.
