Q.

What is Doxitab for?

Hi,

Last week i thought i was coming down with a bad case of the flu. i had a terrible headache and my body was aching. The abdominal area was the most painful area - walking was a miserable chore. I also had a slight cough with a little pleghm. At some point i experienced nausea and a bit of dizziness. I had a bit of a discharge which i assumed was normal ovulation.
I thought i could just sleep off this illness but things just became worse when i couldn't sit up at work so i went to our medical centre where i was given Doxitab (100mg) and painkillers. This was after the nurse on duty took a urine sample after which she told me i had an infection.

i'm 23, am sexually active with the same partner for almost four years. Could i have an STI?

Most of the symptoms have mostly disappeared. i still experience a bit of nausea and stomach cramps with a bit of diarrhoea particularly after ingesting the Doxitab.
I'm still taking the Doxitab. What exactly are these pills for and is it normal to be experiencing these side-effects?

Dear Andi
Doxitab is antibiotics and is a broad spectrum for all kinds of infections. It is a good choice if you have discharge too. You could have had a STI but you must ask your doctor if he tested you for it.
