Doxycycline twice per day. Estrace twice per day. Provera once per day. Plus prenatals.

I don’t often complain about meds, but there is something in this combination that simply does not agree with me. I am literally counting the days until I am done with them. Four more doses of Provera. Eight of Estrace. Sixteen of doxy.

I’ve spread them out, I’ve taken them together. It doesn’t seem to matter much.

  1. Yuck. Sorry. The prenatal and doxy alone would make me sick. I don’t think there’s an easy way to take them.

  2. Ditto- yuck. Hoping the blech feeling goes away soon!

  3. I dislike living by the clock to take my meds on time, I’m happy to be free of that for now.

    Hang in there.

  4. the estrace after a while (in nov. for a frozen cycle) really played a number on me… (so much that I thought maybe, just maybe it was morning sickness – but it wasn’t) my current prenatals are also playing a number on me. actually – everything seems to play a number on my stomach.

    so I hear you.

  5. That low-level nausea? Yuck–hope it passes soon.

  6. Blech is right.
    Maybe baking will help?
    Yes, that’s my solution for most things.

  7. Sounds like you need a medicine dispenser for that Rx list. Hope the days go quickly.

  8. I’m sure you thought of this, but can you ask your dr for a prenatal with no iron? Iron is what usually causes the nausea.


  9. Yuck! I am so sorry. I’ve been bitchin about 2 bcps a day. That is nothing compared to this. I took estrace when I was on Depo Lupron and it gave me really bad cramps. Also, do you take probiotics. It can really help level out an icky tummy. We give them to Cooper for all his gut issues; it seems to help.

  10. I took a prenatal that was a pill combo — one in the morning and one at night. The nighttime one had an ingredient to help with sleep, and it was also the one with the components that cause nausea. I can’t remember what it was called. I want to say PrimaCare?

    I hate estrace.
