Hi all,

Well, as you know I'm on a month's worth of Doxy for possible Lyme.

Well, I'm also on the Pill and I just read on a medical site about Doxy that it's effectiveness can be decreased by birth control (and vice-versa).

Crap! I'm not worried I'm pregnant, but I am worried the Pill is making my treatment weaker!

Crap.

I'd suggest that you talk with your doctor about this issue. You may need dose adjustments for both meds and/or to use an alternate form of birth control.
