I'm being treated for upper respiratory infection. I'm on doxycycline

I'm being treated for upper respiratory infection.
I'm on doxycycline and 5mg prednisone
My regular meds are:

Zyrtec 10mg daily
Gabapentin 300/600 mg 2/day
Duloxetine 60 mg 2x/ day
Tramadol 50mg one/two tabs every 6hrs prn
Ibuprofen 800mg daily pen
Tylenol 650 to 1950mg 1/day prn
Aspirin 81mg 1/day
I smoke marijuana and recently dabbled in meth and drink beer occassionally.

I started on first 2 meds yesterday and
Came home and drank 2 beers took my meds and went to bed no problems and felt better today
Today; felt more energetic at work but by end of shift felt pretty cruddy and was using bathroom quite a bit
After getting home by 6 I decided to take a couple bumps of meth to get housework done. Didn't really drink the one beer I opened til close to 9pm and I basically chugged it then tookmymeds with some apple cider.
Half way into normal nightly med routine I suddenly felt query then all symptoms of need to purge arrived quickly which I vomited twice. Expelling any meds I had recently taken.
Feeling ok but still a little query.
Could this be everything, just the alcohol or just the meth use? Cuz I drank more first night on new meds and had no problems

My dr. put me on 100 mg doxycycline 2 x daily for an upper respiratory infection. If I take it on an empty stomach, I throw up. However, if I eat prior to taking, it reduces the effectiveness of the drug. Is there some other antibiotic I could take that would be equally as effective against a bacterial infection? Thank you!

I have had long-term upper respiratory problem for about a year, but it has become more severe in the past three weeks -- persistent, productive cough, especially in the morning; heavy nasal and throat congestion; frequent sputum, usually green, sometimes lighter in color; and recently, infections in both eyes. I am pretty sure that this is related to my suppressed immune system following a year of chemotherapy. (I am currently in remission and undergoing observation and maintenance chemo (Rituxin) and IGIV.) But I am wondering if I am following the proper regimen for the symptoms -- saline nasal flush, Flonase cortisone spray, Tessel Pearls for the cough, some over the counter cold medicine which reduces the congestion a bit.
