Vomited after taking doxycycline. What is the cause?

Hi, i have been taking doxycyclin and I have so far vomited three times on separate occasions. I bought the three capsules to ensure I complete my dose. The last one is for tomorrow morning. However, I have vomited the second last one. Should I repeat the dose and should I add an extra one to ensure I complete the dose? I vomited within fifteen minutes of taking it.

Welcome to HCM,
Doxycycline is known to cause stomach upset and vomiting,it is not clear for how many days you are taking this drug.
As you vomited it would be prudent to repeat the dose and please take after some light food and with i glass of water.
You can complete the course,although it also depend on condition for which it was prescribed.
If possible you can consult your doctor .
Please take care
Good Luck.
