Antibiotics can go screw.
« on: June 16, 2022, 03:33:37 AM »
I'm on doxycycline. I thought going through this was as simple as avoiding dairy. Nope, CALCIUM.
The google searches are from bizarro earth, they're all about ADDING calcium to a diet, rather than how to avoid it. I get it, Calcium is critical, it's vital, it's the building blocks of life.

I'm still supposed to be avoiding it.

Even a bread and water diet wouldn't do it, unless I start baking my own damn bread, as that is one of the highly popular places diets are "Enriched"!

I've found a diet that works for me, but honestly, this poo is for the birds.

Jesus! The list of side effects - even the usual ones - are pretty gruesome and sound worse than what it's trying to treat.

All antibiotics knock my digestive system for 6 and I end up feeling unwell until a take enough pre and probiotics to reset my system.
Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can put off until the day after.

There is an exception to every rule, apart from this one.

The last time I took tetracycline, many years ago, it really upset my stomach.  I was advised to drink rice water (the water that one normally pours off if you cook rice) as the starchy mild bland quality helps to buffer the stomach against the nastiness.

I hope you get through the prescription soon.  It sounds pretty awful.

Found out Pillsbury tube biscuits don't add calcium.

So far most of the food I can eat on this med happen to be unhealthy and packed with sodium.

I can eat all the Lard I want! Sadly, I do not want to eat lard.

For the most part I've just been waiting two hours after taking the drug to eat. I feel crankier and fatter than normal.
