The intestinal pressure sounds like just that ... intestinal pressure ... no surprise given that antibiotics reek havoc.

Has anybody had similar experiences? I took this antibiotic for four days before everything got ugly.

Thanks in advance.
I ended up having a seizure because of this medication and since have not been able to get out of bed because I am afraid that I am going to have another seizure. I am epileptic and I had a cold and my doctor prescribed this crap to me for the cold the next day started taking them I ended up in the ER having a seizure and have not felt the same since I have never felt like this before. Before, I realized it was this medication that was doing this to me I have taken it for six days. So now it's been three days since i've been taking them but i'm still feeling like i'm going to have a seizure I have no one to take me to the doctor and I can't drive in this condition I need to know how long this will be in my system.

The "half life" of doxycycline is 18 to 22 hours. That means the blood level will drop by one half in that period of time. Forty percent of the dose will be gone in 72 hours. In another 72 hours, 40% of the remaining 40% will be gone, and so on. Some seizure medicines will cause it to be eliminated more quickly. This means the seizure med may make the antibiotic less effective. I cannot find anything suggesting the doxycycline might decrease the effectiveness of the seizure med. It is hard to know without knowing what other medications you are taking. It seems that the doxycycline may not be the actual cause of the seizure. It may have been the illness itself that did it.

You are wise not to drive until you find out what is going on. Have you called your doctor? Have you had a recent blood level of your antiseizure medicine? Have any other medicines beside the doxycycline been started or stopped? Give the doctor's office a call.

By the way, antibiotics are ineffective for "colds", which are caused by viruses. Unless your doctor thought there was a bacterial infection somewhere, the doxycycline was not indicated.

Have you had any side effects personally? If not, there is no reason to quit taking it.

You should definitely talk to your doctor before stopping it.

Don't worry about it. Your drug screen for a job will not even include doxycycline.

I'd rather have acne any day then go through the hell this drug put me through. If you're having bad side effects, then stop immediately. After my experience with this nasty antibiotic, I searched online and found many more people who had the exact same horror stories. Even if my life depended on it, I would ask the doc for another drug. Never again.
