      Evening everyone

      I was wondering if its safe to take doxycycline, ive read reports it can worsen tinnitus and on TT there is a few threads about it but not much evidence either way, its for a sinus infection, 100 mg a day 200 mg on the first day

      Amoxicillin is not ototoxic, so you might want to look into that.

      I've been concerned about doxy. as well. I was just put on 300 mg/day to treat lyme disease, which is a lot.

      Since starting it 2 days ago, I have already had 2 T spikes, and possibly some hearing damage last night (woke up not hearing motorcycles outside the house, and with a burning sensation in both ears). I'm really hoping it's not the drug but I am getting very worried.

      Probably best to try a penicillin family antibiotic instead.

      Doxy is proven to be ototoxic, I would try to go around of it in any case possible, If you cant take it and pray...

      I am strict no cycline (sintetic anibiotics) are coming my way, if they come i turn to raging dog and bite them.
      Doxy kills high pich sounds in ears so you wont notice it directly but after a weak or 2 you lust start not to hear cricets sound, thos above 10khz...

      That is my personal expirience.

      If you must try to have cod oil and N-A-C sustaine releace as ontioxidants

      @Christian78

      Where is it proven to be ototoxic? Do you have a study?
