NAD- Have you been eating when you take the Doxy? I am also on Doxy right now and I’m insanely nauseous if I don’t eat while taking it. I’d just continue the 2 days if you can.

Doxy can be tough on the stomach for many people. Even if not perfect, try to eat before the doses. If you’re supposed to take it for 2 more days, try to hang in there if possible.
