Doxycycline

Doxycycline (Brand name: Adoxa, Doryx, Periostat, Vibramycin) is used to treat bacterial infections, including pneumonia and other respiratory tract infections (for example, lyme disease, acne and genital infections). Travelers use the medication to prevent malaria.
Doxycycline works by preventing the growth and spread of bacteria.

Taking Doxycycline

The absorption of doxycycline is not affected by food, and therefore, it can be taken with meals. For most infections, doxycycline is taken once or twice daily for 7 to 14 days. Some doctors will prescribe a “double dose” for your first dose.

Side Effects of Doxycycline

Doxycycline is generally well-tolerated. The most common side effects are diarrhea or loose stools, nausea, and abdominal pain. Exaggerated sunburn can occur so your exposure to sunlight shouild be minimized.
A slight discoloration of teeth may occur for people under the age of 8 when doxycycline is used.
