Doxycycline Hypotension Causes and Reviews


You've probably heard that high blood pressure is a problem. Sometimes blood pressure that is too low can also cause problems.

Blood pressure is the force of your blood pushing against the walls of your arteries. Each time your heart beats, it pumps out blood into the arteries. Your blood pressure is highest when your heart beats, pumping the blood. This is called systolic pressure. When your heart is at rest, between beats, your blood pressure falls. This is the diastolic pressure. Your blood pressure reading uses these two numbers. Usually they're written one above or before the other, such as 120/80. If your blood pressure reading is 90/60 or lower, you have low blood pressure.

Some people have low blood pressure all the time. They have no symptoms and their low readings are normal for them. In other people, blood pressure drops below normal because of a medical condition or certain medicines. Some people may have symptoms of low blood pressure when standing up too quickly. Low blood pressure is a problem only if it causes dizziness, fainting or in extreme cases, shock.

i am anaemic and i've been treating my acne with Doxycycline but instead my anaemia got worse i'm drowzy,my head feels heavy and i have a headache from hell.
Sun, 07 Jun 2009
I was taking Doxycycline for an MRSA staph infection. I had tightness in my chest and worsening difficulty breathing, sore tongue, burning palms and soles of my feet, and extreme exhaustion. At the end of my 9th day on the medication, I had excrutiating headaches, I was unable to eat and drinking more than a sip of anything made me unable to breathe. I didn't even think about this being a side effect of the antibiotic. It was really scary. I stopped taking it two days ago, and I still feel somewhat bad, but I can at least breathe again now.
Sat, 15 May 2010
The doctor had prescribed me 100 mg Doxycycline twice daily for 14 days. On 9th day of medication, I had itching in different parts of my body. Then I consulted the doctor but he asked me to continue the Doxycycline and complete the course. To control itching he gave me antihistaminic drug for the remaining medication period. Even after completing the course of medicine I had little bit itching for one more week.

I am 11 days into a 20 day regime of Doxycycline for Staph. I am 51 and have not had a period in 2 years. 2 days ago I had some breast tenderness and this morning I woke to classic menstrual bleeding with abdominal cramps.
