Was taking this for NSU/NGU which had infected my prostate. Was on Cipro first few weeks but Cipro made me quite nauseous after a while. Doxy was much easier to take but I don't feel my condition has been completely cured, & I just finished the course. I may have something viral lingering but I did feel benefit from the Doxy and will be willing to take again, if needed.
