Upper respiratory Doxycycline

Some advice please,Dr Tinkelman, I am 74 & over past 6 years several diagnosis:
MycoPlasmaPneumoniae, horrible with no treatment of asthma symptoms, next treating asthma symptoms, then finally diagnosed with a form of ABPA. Reaction to aspergillus (aspergillosis) under skin & high IGE 2200 but no evidence of blood antibodies. Treated with 15mgs prednisone every OTHER day for 3 yrs w/exacerbation occasionally. Last Dec "11 was able to get off prednisone & best yr ever until now.
Flu days after Turkey day fr grandchild, then UTI.w/yellow/tan mouthfuls when coughing. Had pred 13 day pack for breathing. Then short steroid shot & 100mg of doxycycline 8 days ago. Helped color of plugs & cough, turned to white mouthfuls of sputum, last 2 days that is better.  Doxy has made me feel weird, little dizzy & yesterday & today nauseated. Very tired. Dec 22 flight to FL & cruise!! What can I do to get better?  Should I get off Doxy? maybe take another antibiotic with me. Urgent to get well!  Please answer soon

Hello and hope you are doing well.

As your symptoms have improved with doxycycline, continue and complete your course. Along with this you can take bronchodilators, do breathing exercises and steam inhalations, to help with your symptoms.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.

Thank you...I did just that even though I did not see this post until now.  Think I stopped for a day or two & realized maybe it wasn't the Doxy so continued through the trip.
We were leaving at 4AM on Sat morning for the airport & on Thursday I was still a mess with no energy or zest.  Desperate around late aftnoon that Thursday I decided to try a Tramadal I had taken for cracked vertebrae a year ago.  I remembered they gave me energy as well as helping the pain.  Voila...I was in business & started packing.  I took one every day on the trip & I was good & the week long cruise was fantastic!  Still have a cough but nothing serious!
