I would like to get a positive rating from you so if you are not completely satisfied with my answers please let me know. Thanks! Hi, Doxycycline is known to become stuck in the throat temporarily and when it does it causes an inflammation of the esophagus because it will cause an acidic response that irritates and burns the lining wall. It is this burn like feeling that is painful and makes it feel the medication is still stuck in your throat. It normally heals on its own in a few days. You can however try an acid suppressant like Pepcid or Zantac which may help with the discomfort. Eat only softer foods for now and if by Monday or Tuesday you are still in pain you would need to call your physician for a look see. Hope this helps!

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
