Mode of action of Doxycycline

Doxycycline is an antibiotic in the tetracycline group.

Bacteria, like all living things, must produce proteins to survive and grow. Tetracyclines prevent the build up of proteins in the bacteria so that they can no longer grow. The human immune system can then easily kill the bacteria. As a result, inflammation and the associated symptoms often go back within a few days.

    Doxycycline for Respiratory infections

    I went to the doctor at the first signs of bronchial inflammation this year and got this medication prescribed. I was hoping to save myself the worst symptoms of a flu infection by taking the antibiotic early. However, unfortunately, it was different, so I had to endure strong cough cramps and two days fever. Even after the last tablet (9 days), the symptoms such as coughing and dripping nose had not subsided. Conclusion: The drug has not developed any positive effect. As for the side effects, it is difficult to estimate what can be caused by inconvenience to the infection or the drug.

    Side effects: Ineffectiveness

    Doxycycline for Borreliose

    The first day after taking it feels pretty dull after the first hour. This feeling remained daily after ingestion. This has to do with the effect of the strong drug and is also i. O. From the 2nd day until the 5th day only watery bowel movements. The hunger is there and I eat too, but it all comes out watery at all times. Today, just before taking the 5 tablets (1 x 200 mg daily at intervals of 24 hours) it bristles in the stomach. I take the medicine with the meal to me. Over the weekend follow 2 tablets. Then it goes to the doctor. I can handle it if the disease is defeated, but I do not want to cause more. I am in the first stage and I have wandering flush with flu-like syntoms.

    Doxycycline for Tick bite

    Start of taking: 2.8.2007; End of the intake: 21.8.2007 Compatibility: at first without problems. Then pain in the joints and muscles of the legs, back, shoulders, arms. Pain in the genital area. Type of pain: Sudden onset, strong, sticky, circulating from one area to another. During the day and also at night. Very disturbing. After the end of all 20 tablets, the pain persists, sporadically. Activity must be restricted or terminated. Sleep impossible again and again. After about 4 weeks: Taking a painkiller: Voltaren Resinat capsules. Beneficial. Side effect: Sleep disturbance, not because of pain but because of increased wakefulness. Doctor recommends taking Voltaren resinate only sporadically. After 8 weeks still sporadic pain as above, only rarely. Doxy 200 is a broad-spectrum antibiotic. For decades on the market. There is certainly another antibiotic after tick bite. Note: There is, but doxycycline is gold standard because of price-performance, effectiveness and compatibility.

    Side effects: Joint pain; Muscle aches

    Doxycycline for Borreliose

    Doxy-M-Ratiopharm 200 mg was prophylactically taken after a tick bite with a reddish border. The drug was completely ineffective, fortunately without side effects, and was replaced with Bayer’s doxycycline. Given that it is supposed to be the same substance, I wonder about the justification for this drug. I wrote to the manufacturer. This responded after more than a year with a 10-page questionnaire, which should be filled out by the attending physician. My doctor rejected the questionnaire, probably because of the size.

    Side effects: No side effects
