I am in law enforcement and suffer from PTSD and let me tell you that this made my anxiety; which I can usually manage fine, completely explode. I've been taking Doxy for over a month and I can barely get out of bed due to anxiety and intrusive thoughts that have gotten so bad since taking this med. my chest is tight 24 hours a day, my breathing feels so slow it's as though my lungs are just going to stop working. God the dizziness and vertigo is extremely unbearable. I would rather have bad skin and figure out natural ways to deal with this than take these pills any longer, was on the brink of depression. I stopped taking the medication 1 day and already feel better.
