    I've had long-running gut issues, about 25 years or more of IBS-D type symptoms. I was recently diagnosed with Chronic Active EBV and Lyme disease. After the conclusion of a 30-day course of Doxycycline, my gut habit has improved. I feel better, too.

    I suspect that somehow my pancreas was having an issue. (My stool no longer floats.) If it was sick, it will probably take some time to recover, but so far so good.

    hey, how's it goin' ?

    just want to inform you that any gut relief from Doxy will be short-lived (unless you keep taking Doxy , and I believe its' effectiveness diminishes the longer it's used) <--- This was my experience.

    What helped my gut more than all else is VSL #3 , probiotic.

    All the best to you .

    Agreed, always take probiotics to replenish good gut bacteria

    I'm not sure if I was understood. My gut issues improved a bit while on Doxycycline and improved more after the 30-day course of medication was finished. In fact, the IBS-D would seem to have become IBS-C, which is a welcome relief.
