Doxy gives me indigestion so I've been taking it with Pepcid (not the Pepcid complete) and it works for me.
 
Tried a search and could not find any info about mixing the two.
 
Anyone here have any thoughts/experience with this?
 
Thanx,
 
Jane

Hi Mcjane,
I just went to my mail in 'scription site & checked to make sure I 'wasn't telling stories - anyway, there is no issues with taking the two drugs.

There are actually several sites for checking drug reaction & interaction. I could start a new thread here if anyone is interested.

Thanks Traveler.
It works for me so will continue. Just wanted to be sure it wasn't taking away the full effect of the doxy.

I'd be interested in a thread on drug reaction & interaction and I'm sure many others would be too.

The web site link would be great - I normally ask the pharmacist when I'm unsure.

I have a really great pharm as well!! I ask him way too many questions every time I go in, I think!

Any way, I'll see if I can find a couple of really reliable site & see if I can get the Mods to either nay or yea to them.

McJane,

Hey hun. I found some great information for you. I'm not sure how far apart you are taking the pepcid, but you should take it at least 2 hours after you take Doxy. Here is a great site that tells you everything you need to know about Doxy:

Ensure that your physician is aware of all medications and over-the-counter vitamin supplements or herbal remedies that you are taking. Antacids and certain vitamins and minerals are known to interfere with doxycycline absorption.

Thank you for sending me to that site, many things there I didn't know.

McJane,

I'm glad I could help. I don't want anything in return, although if asked, I'd like us all to get better.

I hope your tummy feels better soon.

Cajun,

Maybe.......and we all hope someday Lyme will be recognized as the epidemic it is and taken more seriously by all medical professionals.

My tummy is fine, thank you, and I hope each day brings you closer and closer to feeling well.
