Hi, I was recently prescribed 100mg capsules doxycycline to help with my acne problems. I have read many forums stating that alot of people get very nauseous and some even vomited from taking it. How can I avoid this all together? Is there a method to prevent it? (I have a phobia of vomiting)
Are you taking it with food?
You need to drink a glass of water when you take it, eat something if nausea is a problem, drink water through out the day.
Just make sure to take it with food and drink water, from personal experience i find it taking it with food prevents upset stomach. If you take it with an empty stomach there’s a change you will may feel nausea or even throw up, I took it on an empty stomach and within an hour I threw it up. Make sure to drink water throughout the day as well(:
I took Doxycycline several years ago and haven't taken it since because I remember throwing up from it. I'm pretty sure I took it with food because I never take meds on an empty stomach. Ask your provider if there is an alternative to you taking Doxycycline.
