Doxycycline and weed.... (pharmacists please!)?!

Question: Doxycycline and weed.... (pharmacists please!).?
I'm taking Doxycycline and I was wondering if it would affect the medication if I smoke weed.

I'm just wondering if it would hinder me getting better with the help of my Doxycycline. thanks :)Health Question & Answer

I'm pretty sure smoking weed doesn't really effect the medication. In the past I've been perscribed with seroquil, prozac, lamictal, colonzapan, abilify and other medications and i've been smoking weed like religously and it had no effect on any medication i've been on.Health Question & Answer

Possible side effects of Doxycycline :

All medicines may cause side effects, but many people have no, or minor, side effects. Check with your doctor if any of these most COMMON side effects persist or become bothersome:

Diarrhea; difficulty swallowing; inflammation of the tongue; loss of appetite; nausea; purple patches under the skin; sensitivity to sunlight; skin inflammation in the anal and genital areas; vomiting.

Seek medical attention right away if any of these SEVERE side effects occur:

Severe allergic reactions (rash; hives; itching; difficulty breathing; tightness in the chest; swelling of the mouth, face, lips, or tongue); bulging soft spots in infants; headache and/or blurred vision; increased pressure in the head; pain, swelling, or redness at injection site; vaginal irritation or discharge; severe reaction to the sun.Health Question & Answer

There is no obvious interaction that comes to mind. The main problem with antibiotic interference occurs from alteration of hepatic cytochrome enzymes, something marijuana does not particularly do. I see no reason off hand that they would have any strong interaction with each other.

Antibiotics and their action are not my area of expertise, and are actually one of the topics I'm less experienced with. You'd have to consult your doctor, I can only offer information from the area of general pharmacology.Health Question & Answer
