Bone and Joint Pain Caused by Doxy?
Posted over a year ago
Can prolonged use of doxycycline hyclate induce bone and joint pain. Loss of bone density is common in overuse of anti inflammatory medicine. Does this apply to doxy? I have chronic hip and joint pain now after using doxy for 7 months.
Lovemypresley - I have the same thing going on. I've been on Doxy for almost two weeks in case of Lyme's Disease, and the latter part of last week, all of a sudden, my joints swelled up in both hands..the fingers, and it's still like that..also knee, hip and shoulder pain. Went back to dr. and she prescribed prednisone for it, but I'm wondering if it's a side effect?
