Doxycycline is a prescription antibiotic used to treat a wide variety of infections, including chest, dental, skin, and sexually transmitted infections. It’s one of the most widely-prescribed antibiotics in the United States, with millions of people taking the medication each year.
The list of conditions that doxycycline is used for is extensive. You may take it if you have acne or an eye infection or if you get an infection from contaminated water. It’s even used to prevent malaria and treat anthrax. It comes in a variety of forms, including tablets, capsules, and dissolvable tablets that you take with water. The treatment period is relatively short, with most people beginning to feel better after a few days of starting the course of antibiotics, but it’s important to take the full course, even if you’re no longer showing symptoms.
What is doxycycline Prescribed For?
Doxycycline can be considered something of a miracle medication, not only because of its effectiveness but because of the sheer number of conditions that it can be used for. It’s most commonly prescribed for people that have a chest, skin, or urinary tract infection, but it’s one of the most versatile drugs that we have; listing everything that it’s used to treat would take up a page or more. It can be used to treat people who are allergic to penicillin, too.
How Does doxycycline Work?
Doxycycline is a type of tetracycline antibiotic. These antibiotics work by targeting the bacteria that are causing the infection and preventing them from growing. More specifically, the medication stops the bacteria from producing the protein they need to survive. That’s how it works when it’s used as part of treatment against interior infections. For bacterial conditions like acne, it reduces the volume of bacteria on the surface of the skin.
What Are The Side Effects of doxycycline?
The vast majority of people that take doxycycline don’t experience any side effects at all. However, as with every other type of medication, some people will. Studies have shown that around one in ten people that take doxycycline will experience side effects to varying degrees.
The most common side effects include:
- Light sensitivity
- Teeth discoloration (which goes away with dental cleaning)
Though it’s rare, some people do experience more severe side effects. These can include:
- Severe or bloody diarrhea
- High blood pressure
- Blistered or peeling skin
Frequently asked questions
Can you get doxycycline over the counter?
You’ll need a prescription to take doxycycline. The medication is not available over the counter. If you’re in need of a doxycycline online prescription, then be sure to book your consultation with a clinician at DrHouse.
Can you get a doxycycline prescription online?
Doxycycline is a controlled substance, which means you’ll need to have it prescribed to you by a licensed healthcare professional. But you don’t necessarily need to go in person to a healthcare provider to get a prescription. You can get a doxycycline prescription online by making an appointment at DrHouse. During the short consultation, the clinician will determine whether doxycycline is suitable for you. If it is, then the prescription will be sent to you, or you can pick it up at a pharmacy of your choosing.
How to take doxycycline?
How you take doxycycline will depend on why it has been prescribed to you. Typically doses are 100mg – 200mg, taken once or twice a day. If taking more than once a day, you should take one dose when you wake up and one when you go to bed.
For some conditions, the dose will be 40 mg, taken once a day. You can take it with or without food, though it’s sometimes recommended to take it with food because it reduces the chance of nausea.
Many people begin to feel better after a few days of taking doxycycline. However, as with all antibiotics, it’s important that you complete the full course of medication.
What to avoid while taking doxycycline?
There are some medications that will negatively interact with doxycycline. These include:
- Other antibiotics
- Some acne medicines
It’s also important to tell your healthcare provider if you’re taking supplements that include zinc, aluminum, calcium, or magnesium. You should also avoid consuming dairy products at the same time you take the medication (wait a few hours).
Is doxycycline considered a strong antibiotic?
Doxycycline is often used to treat conditions that are generally difficult to treat. For this reason, doxycycline is considered “strong”; however, it is safe for humans who are given the correct dosage.
