Steroids gave me perioral dermatitis, so I needed an antibiotic. After a failed second choice topical, I was prescribed doxycycline hyclate, which I did not want. Anyway, I have been getting much sicker, which cannot all be blamed on the antibiotic; one of my symptoms wasn't in line with all the other things that plague me, however. Severe muscle cramps that woke me at night and left painful tight muscles visited me at night and then during the day. Eventually I looked at a more in depth list of side effects, and sure enough severe, though rare, cramping was listed. I believe it made me weaker, too. Of interest for sure is that dysphagia is listed as a side effect! My PCP and neuro nurse believed my hunch, and stopping the drug has resulted in a gradual lessening of those symptoms, though the muscle soreness resulting from cramping remains. Be careful if you are prescribed this drug!!! I know we are all different, but dysphasia is not a side effect to fool with.
