27 Nov 2014 I think I have decreased libido. I'm not able to keep an erection for as long as before I started taking DH

12 Aug 2014 I have noticed when taking Doxycycline Hyclate; I get very edgy attitudes, high mood swings that can go off from something that I feel that's not right to me.

22 Jul 2014 This drug should not be taken more than 5 days.. also should not be taken right before sleeping... or with little water... this is a sticky sticky drug, and can burn the hell out of your throat/stomach. Im on day 5 of this excruciating pain with no meds helping... im going to take prevacid if its ok with my doctor... this was a very painful experience.

24 Oct 2013 Taking doxycycline was not good for me and I will never take again. I was read that you aren't suppose to lie down until after 1 hour of taking the pill; my instructions said 10 minutes...and no where did it states the side affects I was experiencing. These were my symptoms for the past 4 days with yesterday being the worst: Difficulty swallowing, when I swallow, the feeling of food "sticking" in the middle of the chest or throat, stomach cramps, headache, feeling the need to burp but can’t. Yesterday, I bought some Prevacid (well Meijer brand because they were cheaper) and within a few hours, I felt about 50% better and the next day 100% better. I don't have any of the symptoms I had yesterday.

I also have been fatigued,some upper abdominal discomfort,and more high strung\stressed with an increase i heart palpitations.
