My daughter is taking Doryx for acne. She started 21 days ago and today awoke with diarrhea, nausea, and now has a fever of 101.9. The pharmacy and clinic are closed due to the holiday. What if anything can I give her or do?
Stop using doxycycline and call your doctor at once if you have any of these serious side effects: fever, nausea and vomiting.-
diarrhea-less serious side effect
She must drink plenty of fluids, she has been dehydrating.-
For future reference:
Get emergency medical help if you have any of these signs of an allergic reaction: hives; difficulty breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat.
Stop using doxycycline and call your doctor at once if you have any of these serious side effects:

severe pain in your upper stomach spreading to your back, nausea and vomiting, fast heart rate;
loss of appetite, jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes); or

This is not a complete list of side effects and others may occur. Call your doctor for medical advice about side effects. You may report side effects to FDA at 1-800-FDA-1088.
I hope your princess gets well soon, if her symptoms get worse, just take her to the hospital (ER). She must hydrate and drink plenty of fluids.-
