I'm taking Moxatag long term for Lyme disease. The first time I took it, I got worse for a week, and then improved dramatically. However, I developed a new symptom, eye problems, which the doctors are unable to diagnose (a possible exacerbation of the lyme to the nerves in the brain has been suggested but not confirmed). Went off for 2 months. Lyme symptoms returned. I will probably have to try IV antibiotics but in the meantime I'm back on Moxatag so I can have a surgery I need...unfortunately the eye problems seemed to have worsened, one week in, although the other Lyme symptoms, as before, have regressed. It's a frustrating disease. Moxatag is much more convenient and safe than oral abx I've been on (no interactions with food or sunlight, and no dietary upset). I came here looking to see if the eye problems are possibly related to the Moxatag rather than the Lyme.

I have had Strep throat for 4 days now and have been taking Moxatag for 4 days. Doctor told me I would feel relief in a day or 2 and I feel no change. Only thing that seems to help is the Tylenol I take for the pain and fever.

Right now I would say that the pill is doing its job. I am 4 days into a 10 day pill treatment and have unforunately had some stomach issues with diahrea and feelings that I needed to vomit. Hopefully these side effects will lessen because the pill is great otherwise. I hope to be rid of a horrible sinus infection soon!

I can't remember taking a drug this effective. My awful throat pain disappear after the second dose. However, I had stomach pain almost immediately. But I was happy to get rid of the throat infection and overall nasty feeling.
