I have a horrible skin infection that's painful and hurts. It keeps getting worse and my doctor prescribed doxycycline. I told her I was extremely allergic to Minocycline and asked if the doxycycline would be ok. She said that doxycycline is safer and doesn't cause as many allergies and just because I'm allergic to Minocycline it does not mean I can't take doxycycline. My pharmacist disagrees and tells me this could cause anaphylaxis (that's what happened two weeks into taking Minocycline). I don't know who to trust. There is no alternative drug available I'm not allergic too and now I'm told there's literally NOTHING I can take for my infection. It's going on two weeks. Im miserable. Please help me
Doxycycline - Dr and pharmacist are giving conflicting info?
