Doxycycline Suicidal Ideation Causes and Reviews


Suicide is the tenth most common cause of death in the United States. People may consider suicide when they are hopeless and can't see any other solution to their problems. Often it's related to serious depression, alcohol or substance abuse, or a major stressful event.

People who have the highest risk of suicide are white men. But women and teens report more suicide attempts. If someone talks about suicide, you should take it seriously. Urge them to get help from their doctor or the emergency room, or call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255). It is available 24/7.

Therapy and medicines can help most people who have suicidal thoughts. Treating mental illnesses and substance abuse can reduce the risk of suicide.

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.

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 was taking them as an anti-malarial. Caused a duodenal ulcer and a bleed on the brain, either of which could have killed me. Both nearly did, I had 3 months in hospital and 8 operations before I was discharged. I will probably never be properly well again.

I took Doxycycline for 10 days for perioral dermatitis. A week after completing the medicine I went to the ER with a burning in my chest. Then I lost my appetite, was nauseous and started losing weight. Three weeks later I was diagnosed with gastroparesis. I went on motility medication and changed my diet. It has been 14 months, I am improved, no longer taking the medication and able to eat small meals that are easily digestible. I know of 4 other people who developed gastroparesis after taking Doxycycline.

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. Could the Doxycycline be responsible for this in some way? Should I follow up with my GP or call my GYN?
