Customer Question

i was recently put on a course of...
i was recently put on a course of doxycycline 100mg twice a day apparently as a precaution whilst a fully range of tests results came in a walk in clinic. after 3 and a half days i reacted badly to the drug.... massive itching poor breathing etc... and when i called the walk in i was told yesterdaythat they would not be returning to work until monday but that i must stop taking immediately. I have done so and all things appear to be returning to normal. I am still feeling some discomfort at the tip of my penis and i "Doctor" friend travelling through has given me Zithromax which he says is better than the doxy without the side effects. I am about to travel on Monday and may not be able to get to the clinic. Can i go ahead and take the Zithromax. I stopped taking the Doxy 24 hours ago
