hello everyone....i have had really bad knee pain and its getting worse. Does anyone know what i can do for this. I have heated it, iced it and took 800mg advil ....sometimes it gets so bad that the pain comes from the begining of my thigh to straight through my kneee. Its hurts to walk on it and now when i sleep i cant lay on it. should i contact my dr. or is this just something that i have to deal with...

Hi Jennie48,

Do you know that you have to take Doxy with food (no dairy)? When I took Doxy without food it made me very nausea.

Are you seeing a Lyme Literate doctor? Of course you can contact your doctor about it.

It's very important to see a doctor who understands Lyme. In most cases 100 mg. of Doxy won't be enough to treat Lyme.

Take care!

hello goodoldtimes.....yes i am seeing a Lyme Literate doctor...i am going to call him today. I didnt think that i could take it with food cause it says not to cause it wont absorb right in your system...and my dr said that he wanted to go easy with my with the doxy casue my lyme wasnt that bad but i feel like i need more. also did doxy make you tired and feel worse?

Hi Jennie48,
First I took 100 mg. Doxy twice a day for 2 months, later I took 200 mg. Doxy twice a day and Biaxin 1000 mg. once a day for 4 months.
First I felt better on the doxy, my symptoms were less, after 28 days I herxed really bad, all my symptoms got worse.
Are you aware of the Jarisch-herxheimer reaction?

hi goodoldtimer,
No I am not aware of the Jarisch-herxheimer reaction, what is it? i am going to try to cut back on sugar and try not to drink my cofee everyday....it helps me tho get through the morrnings at work but it would probally be best to cut it out.

I have been on doxy for a lil over a month....i have not been consistant with it tho. i should probally be done with it cause i only had 60 pills and take it twice a day. But it just made me sick...i am going to eat a lil something with it now..
