What's the connection between doxycycline and liver function?


Answer by  rosieposey78 (1304)

Doxycycline has a small chance of causing liver damage. Signs of liver damage would include yellowing of skin or eyes, severe fatigue, unusual bleeding, abdomen discomfort or pain, nausea, or bruising.


Answer by  TMyers (1084)

Doxycycline is generally used by doctors to treat bacterial infections. This medication can sometimes cause abnormal readings in liver function tests and can, in far more rare cases, lead to a form of non infective jaundice. These risks can be elevated with the consumption of alcohol while taking this medication.

Doxycycline is an antibiotic that is prescribed to help slow down the growth of bacteria in ones body. If you have a liver disease you may not be able to take doxycycline. Your doctor will have to closely monitor your dosage and your liver function if this medicine is prescribed to you.

Doxycycline is found to have some abnormal effects on liver function tests. Jaundice is found in some cases. Even its rare, it is potentially dangerous for those who are affected.
