Rated Doxicin (Oracea, Doryx) for Bronchitis- acute Report
I am only on day 2 of being prescribed this medication and after taking it this morning 2 hours later when I tried to eat I got severely nauseous and wound up vomiting . So I decided to research which of the medications I've been prescribed could cause it because I'm also on an inhaler and cough syrup. After finding this website and reading the reviews I'm terrified to continue taking this medication as I already have severe anxiety issues and heart palpitation issues plus vomiting on top of being horribly sick with bronchitis really does not make me feel much better really not sure if I will be continuing whith the medication any further
