Is bladder infection possible while on Doxycycline?

I am currently taking Doxcycline Hyclate 100 mg twice a day for an UTI. This is day 5 on the medicine and now I feel like I am getting a bladder infection. Is it possible to get that while taking this medicine? I am having the frequent urination and when I go there is not much there and feels like a am full.

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
It is possible to have UTI even if you are using doxocycline.
Maybe you are having a doxocycline resistant Infection.
You should do a uroculture to see which antibiotic works best for your infection.
Meanwhile take ibuprofen for pain.
Drink lots of cranberry juice and tea.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

I m having copmuter problems so I may get lost. I believe I have a bladder infection, so I m checking what antibiotics are compatable with my meds. I have PD and heart Problems. I m seeing my GP inthe morning & there is often a problem with her knowing the possible interactions. It saves me a lot of money if I have an idea whats compatable.

I have had a bladder infection for about 2 weeks. My doctor prescribed Macrobid. When the urine culture came back it showed my bacteria was resistant. My doctor then prescribed Bactrim. I have been on it for 8 days and my pain is getting worse. In the past Bactrim never cleared up my bladder infections. How is this possible when the urine culture shows that Bactrim is susceptible?
