Drug interactions between doxycycline and methylergonovine
Interactions between your drugs
Applies to: doxycycline and methylergonovine
Medications like doxycycline may rarely increase the effects of methylergonovine, leading to excessive narrowing of blood vessels in the body. This can reduce blood flow to vital organs and increase the risk of serious side effects such as high blood pressure, heart attack, stroke, and gangrene (death of tissues, usually in the arm or leg, that may require surgical amputation). You should seek immediate medical attention if you experience severe abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, numbness or tingling, muscle pain or weakness, blue or purple discoloration of fingers or toes, pale or cold skin, chest pain or tightness, irregular heartbeat, severe headache, shortness of breath, blurred vision, confusion, and/or slurred speech during treatment with methylergonovine. Do not take larger doses or use the drug more frequently than prescribed. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs. Do not stop using any medications without first talking to your doctor.

Contact your doctor if your condition changes or you experience increased side effects. Orange juice is not expected to interact.
