How Does Doxycycline Work?
You will take Doxycycline orally each day. Your doctor will direct you to either take one or two pills of Doxycycline at the same time each day. It is best to take this medication on an empty stomach, preferably at least one to two hours after a meal. If you are using Doxycycline to prevent Malaria, then you will take one pill each day. You should begin this at least one to two days before traveling and continue until you are safely back home for a minimum of four weeks or more.
Is Doxycycline Easy to Get?
Yes. Doxycycline is a popular antibiotic that is often prescribed to treat bacterial infections and moderate acne. It is commonly used for treating urinary tract infections, some sexually transmitted diseases, and to prevent Malaria during international travels. You will need a prescription to fill Doxycycline though.
What Precautions Should I Take Before Starting Doxycycline?
Always discuss your health history with your doctor before taking a new medication, including Doxycycline. Taking Doxycycline with a meal or milk may reduce its effectiveness at treating a bacterial infection.
Frequent use of antibiotics, including Doxycycline, can lead to oral thrush or vaginal yeast infections. An allergic reaction is also rare but possible. Symptoms of an allergic reaction include fever, lymph node swelling, itching, swelling, dizziness, and difficulty breathing.
Are There Any Known Side Effects of Doxycycline?
Although uncommon, side effects are always a possibility. Potential side effects of Doxycycline include nausea, diarrhea, and vomiting. More serious side effects are rare but are possible and include difficulty swallowing, skull pressure, and kidney problems. Also rare, it is possible to develop intestinal conditions from resistant bacteria when taking antibiotics. You can reduce your risk by discussing your use of antibiotics with your healthcare professional before taking them.
While these side effects may sound scary, very few women will actually experience them. Instead, women should notice a decrease in bacterial symptoms after taking this medication.
Can I Take Doxycycline With Other Medications?
Generally, yes. Doxycycline can be taken with most prescription and over-the-counter medications. However, it is always a good idea to inform your doctor of all medications you are currently taking before taking Doxycycline. Some ingredients like aluminum, iron, and zinc can interfere with Doxycycline's effectiveness. Also, some medications like retinoids, blood thinners, and anti-seizure medications can negatively interact with Doxycycline.
Does Doxycycline Treat a Urinary Tract Infection?
Doxycycline stops the growth of bacteria, making it effective at treating urinary tract infections.
Does Doxycycline Cause Weight Gain?
Doxycycline does not directly cause weight gain. However, because it eliminates all bacteria including gut bacteria that is responsible for weight control and inflammation, it may temporarily increase your weight. However, any added weight gain should go away after you complete your dose of antibiotics.
