Doxycycline — The Bump
Snarky and T-TTC

Doxycycline

Stupid bottle says to take it on an empty stomach. Makes me super nauseous, and of course I read this:

"Take doxycycline with food or following a meal. If you have taken doxycycline on an empty stomach before and gotten away with it, the next time may be different. Doxycycline induced nausea is quite unpleasant and more serious stomach irritation can occur."

But stupid bottle says empty stomach. Grrrrr.

  • Does you bottle also force you to take it either 3 hours after eating, or one hour prior? I am so used to eating every 2-3 hours, this is killing me
  • Take it with food. Trust me. It may take longer to take effect, but it will work and your tummy will be happier.

    This. My nurse actually told me to ignore what the bottle said and to only take it after having had eaten something. I didn't do that one time and regretted it. Good luck!

    Baby Boy O born 4/5/2010, 7lbs 14oz, 20", at 38w by c-section due to pre-e & failed induction
  • My bottle of doxy told me to take it with food or milk.  I took it once without food, and it wasn't very pleasant.
