If you’ve dealt with chronic acne or UTIs, you might have been prescribed this antibiotic by your practitioner. You might also have used it if you traveled to a region where malaria is endemic. In other words, doxycycline is used for a whole lot of reasons, which is why the dose and how long someone needs to take it will vary from person to person. Common side effects include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, rash, and sensitivity to sunlight. Antibiotics aren’t exactly known for being easy on the body, but they can be very effective at doing the job they’re meant to do!

Starting to understand I wasn’t crazy and it was the Bartonella. Started doxy and rifampin. Looking into DNRS as well as I been practicing Wim hoff methid but need to retrain my brain out of these loops. Anyone done DNRS and have success?
It’s tick season...and I know of 3 friends who have already pulled ticks off themselves. Outside of mailing the tick in for testing, what is the latest thinking/research in terms of possible prophylactics? I know some people ask their doctor for a round of doxy. What else can people do?
Had a pretty bad allergic reaction to doxycycline for a sinus infection - prickling/itching, tingling and numbness all over, fever, burning throat... it also brought on my weird neuro symptoms so much more. Would this be an indication I would want to get tested for Lyme? I have a mold toxicity but haven’t done the igenex test yet due to cost.

Survival Medicine: Backcountry Safety, Doxycycline, Lyme
School's out and a great way to teach your family survival basics is by taking them camping. The skills needed for successful camping are akin to those required for the activities of daily survival. Once learned, these lessons last a lifetime. There’s no greater gift that you can give young people than the ability to be self-reliant. Camping trips create bonds and memories that will last a lifetime. A poorly planned campout, however, can become memorable in a way you don’t want, especially if someone gets injured. Luckily, a few preparations and an evaluation of your party’s limitations will help you enjoy a terrific outing with the people you care about, and maybe impart some skills that would serve them well in dark times. Plus, identifying a common summer infection, Lyme disease, that can have long-term effects. Treatment, prevention, and more, plus a discussion of a popular broad-spectrum antibiotic that treats Lyme and many other diseases, Doxycycline. Learn indications, side effects, dosing, and much more. Plus, a discussion of an exagerrated form of a common pregnancy complaint: nausea and vomiting. When it's excessive, it's called hyperemesis and can cause dehydration, weight loss, and in austere settings, can become life-threatening. All this and much more on the latest Survival Medicine Hour with Joe Alton MD and Amy Alton ARNP. aka Dr. Bones and Nurse Amy!
