Doxy

Has anyone taken Doxycycline for whatever reason and have it make your hand (palm) tingle/vibrate when you clap your hands? Just wondering if I'm having a rx to the Doxy.

yes you are having a herx! the tingling that you feel are the nerve endings were the spirochetes are sitting, for years I had that problems and it has come back again on doxy, I am on 600mg of doxy a day, if you are on a low dose I would ask you doctor to raise it to 400 mg a day. the reason is it has to cross the blood brain barrier.

I am on 100 mg tid but will probably change to a diff AB that works better for Mycoplasma. I thought it was too low to cross the BB barrier but my Dr wanted to make sure I didn't get too bad of a reaction before he upped it. He said the only reaction of tingling his patients have had was tingling when their hands were run under cold water. Mine tingle when I clap which makes me nervous. So far it hasn't helped my twitching unfortunately!

Doxy works well for Lyme but is not best choice for mycoplasma which can also cause twitches. Bands were 41 & 23 which indicate exposure to Lyme (I've had it twice in the past)

you have lyme disease stephanie, I have 23 and 41 plus others. doxy is working for me at 600 mgs a day somtimes I go between 400 and 600 on differant days. remember that it has to get to the brain in high strength. make sure your doctor knows that.
