Doxycycline causing more issues?!

Posted , 6 users are following.

i was prescribed Doxycycline 100mg twice a day for a sinus infection a week ago, im at the end of the weeks course and my sinus symptoms have eased however im experiencing headaches, nausea, excessive gas and heightened anxiety.

are these common side effects of doxy? will they subside quickly now ive finished them?
