What's in it, and what are some of the side effects?
Asked by Juliane Chadek 3 months ago.
Doxycycline Hyclate molecular formula: C22H24N2O8•H2O molecular weight: 462.46 It's used for treating certain bacterial infections. It may be used in combination with other medicines to treat acne or certain amoeba infections. It may be used to prevent certain types of malaria in travelers who will be visiting malaria-infected areas for less than 4 months. It may also be used to prevent or slow the progression of anthrax after exposure. Doxycycline Hyclate is a tetracycline antibiotic. It works by slowing the growth of bacteria. Slowing the bacteria's growth allows the body's immune system to destroy the bacteria. Be sure to use Doxycycline Hyclate for the full course of treatment. If you do not, the medicine may not clear up your infection completely. The bacteria could also become less sensitive to this or other medicines. This could make the infection harder to treat in the future. Doxycycline Hyclate only works against bacteria; it does not treat viral infections (eg, the common cold). Long-term or repeated use of Doxycycline Hyclate may cause a second infection. Tell your doctor if signs of a second infection occur. Your medicine may need to be changed to treat this. If you are taking Doxycycline Hyclate to prevent malaria, please note that no malaria medicine, including Doxycycline Hyclate, guarantees protection against malaria. Stay in well-screened areas, use mosquito nets, cover the body with clothing, and use insect repellent to avoid being bitten by mosquitoes. Hormonal birth control (eg, birth control pills) may not work as well while you are using Doxycycline Hyclate. To prevent pregnancy, use an extra form of birth control (eg, condoms). Doxycycline Hyclate may cause you to become sunburned more easily. Avoid the sun, sunlamps, or tanning booths until you know how you react to Doxycycline Hyclate. Use a sunscreen or wear protective clothing if you must be outside for more than a short time. Mild diarrhea is common with antibiotic use. However, a more serious form of diarrhea (pseudomembranous colitis) may rarely occur. This may develop while you use the antibiotic or within several months after you stop using it. Contact your doctor right away if stomach pain or cramps, severe diarrhea, or blood stools occur. Do not treat diarrhea without first checking with your doctor. Do not take more than the recommended dose or take Doxycycline Hyclate for longer than prescribed without checking with your doctor. Tell your doctor or dentist that you take Doxycycline Hyclate before you receive any medical or dental care, emergency care, or surgery. Doxycycline Hyclate may interfere with certain lab tests. Be sure your doctor and lab personnel know you are taking Doxycycline Hyclate. Lab tests, including liver function, kidney function, and complete blood cell counts, may be performed while you use Doxycycline Hyclate. These tests may be used to monitor your condition or check for side effects. Be sure to keep all doctor and lab appointments. Use Doxycycline Hyclate with extreme caution in CHILDREN younger than 10 years old who have diarrhea or an infection of the stomach or bowel. Doxycycline Hyclate should not be used in CHILDREN younger than 8 years old; permanent yellow-gray-brown tooth discoloration may occur. PREGNANCY and BREAST-FEEDING: Doxycycline Hyclate has been shown to cause harm to the fetus. If you think you may be pregnant, contact your doctor. You will need to discuss the benefits and risks of using Doxycycline Hyclate while you are pregnant. Doxycycline Hyclate is found in breast milk. Do not breast-feed while taking Doxycycline Hyclate. Possible side effects of Doxycycline Hyclate: Loss of appetite; nausea; sensitivity to sunlight; vomiting. Seek medical attention right away if any of these SEVERE side effects occur: Severe allergic reactions (rash; hives; itching; difficulty breathing; tightness in the chest; swelling of the mouth, face, lips, or tongue; unusual hoarseness); bloody stools; chest pain; dark urine; decreased urination; fever, chills, or sore throat; moderate to severe sunburn; severe diarrhea; severe or persistent headache; stomach pain or cramps; throat irritation; trouble swallowing; unusual bruising or bleeding; unusual joint pain; unusual tiredness; vaginal irritation or discharge; vision changes; yellowing of the skin or eyes. If OVERDOSE is suspected: Contact 1-800-222-1222 (the American Association of Poison Control Centers), your local poison control center, or emergency room immediately.

Doxycycline is an antibiotic. It is part of the tetracycline family and is usually given to people with infections who are allergic to penicillin or sulfa drugs. I know because I am normally given this for an infection because of my allergies to those. It is used for a variety of infections such as upper respiratory infections, or urinary tract infections. It's known as a 'broad spectrum' antibiotic because it can treat a number of different infections. One thing to remember when taking this or any tetracycline is to stay out of the sun for long periods of time. Take it with a full glass of water and stay upright for at least 30 minutes after taking it because it can cause nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Be careful if you are on birth control pills because it can reduce the effect of your pills. Answered by Lamont Campagnini 3 months ago.

I am taking doxycycline, how long should I wait before I take my birth control pills
Asked by Dewey Guadalupe 3 months ago.
Doxycycline is given probably because you either have a suspected or confirmed chlamydia infection OR you belong to a so called "high risk" population for this sort of genital infection and you needed to be considered for antibiotics prophylaxis after a gynaecological procedure.(it's unlikely that the indication is different, but I really do not know your history, so i am just assuming...) Which ever the case is, the timing for starting the "pill" has nothing to do with the duration of the doxycycline(which should be anything between 10-14 days), i.e you should start it in the same way that you would regardless of the incidental antibiotic treatment. The only tricky point is that Doxycycline may decrease the "pill's" effectiveness and for that reason if you start the "pill" any time during the Doxycycline treatment or up to 7 days after the course is finished, you should use additional contraception (i.e condoms). If medically indicated the antibiotis to be given for >3 weeks than you should be considered by your doctor for a more potent "pill" (containing 50mcg of estradiol). Hope I helped.

Doxycycline is an antibiotic that's used for various types of infections. If you are already on the pill and was recently put on the doxycycline, there's no reason for you to stop taking the birth control. Some antibiotics interact with the birth control and make it less effective, so it is recommended to use an additional method of birth control (i.e. condoms) for the duration of the doxycycline plus 7 days.

Answered by Porfirio Stelting 3 months ago.
Doxycycline is a very common, widely used, broad spectrum antiobiotic. Affective against gram negative and gram positive bacteria. Docycyline is usually a safe antiobiotic, with few side effects ever experienced. One of the most common side effects is normal flora destruction, which can be counter attacked by eating yogurt with live cultures in it and also by drinking buttermilk, another source of good bacteria, that the antiobiotic kills the good bacteria, while attacking the bad bacteria. The second most common side affect is diarrhea, which subsides quickly once you finish your round of antiobiotics. Approximatley 2 months ago, I took Doxycycline 100mg, twice daily for 21 days for a Staph infection. I did get a yeast infection, starting eating yogurt two times per day. And towards the end of the 21 days, I did get severe diarrhea. But I truly believe you will experience little if any adverse reaction for a 7 day antiobiotic dosing. Plus it will knock out your inflammatory pelvic infection. You get a standing ovation from me, for researching the antiobiotic your on. But I can tell you, when one starts reading all the possible side effects of any medication, including Aspirin, or Tylenol, one begans to get paranoid about taking any medication. Hang in there, go ahead and run your concerns past your doctor. Watch for rash, nausea, vomiting, and most surely watch if you get diarrhea, to observe for blood in your stool. This would be a side effect to report to your doctor immediately and to stop the medication at once. Take Care, you will be fine. Hope this helps. Answered by Marine Hennesy 3 months ago.
This medication that you are taking is used for malaria and maybe you need to talk about this with your doctor because that is what I am not. But you need to ask more question do some research on that. Answered by Conrad Fitchpatrick 3 months ago.
Hi Scott. Acne - Blackheads & WhiteheadsAcne is the most common skin disease treated by physicians. It is a chronic condition that affects over 85% of adolescents and young adults. One study showed that two-thirds of teenagers with acne wanted to talk to their physician about their acne, but only one-third actually did. TYPES OF ACNE Not all acne is the same. Simplistically, acne can be divided into red bumps and blackheads/whiteheads. This division is important because each type is treated differently. Blackheads and whiteheads, known as comedones, can be more numerous on the face and shoulders than red bumps filled with pus. Good, consistent skin hygiene can help improve this condition. Therefore, knowing more about what causes comedones and how to treat them is a step towards clearer skin. WHY DOES ACNE OCCUR ? BLACKHEADS Blackheads, also known as open comedones, are follicles that have a wider than normal opening. They are filled with plugs of sebum and sloughed-off cells and have undergone a chemical reaction resulting in the oxidation of melanin. This gives the material in the follicle the typical black color. WHITEHEADS Whiteheads, also known as closed comedones, are follicles that are filled with the same material, but have only a microscopic opening to the skin surface. Since the air cannot reach the follicle, the material is not oxidized, and remains white. SKIN CARE FOR BLACKHEADS AND WHITEHEADS The key to skin care for acne is consistency. An overnight cure has not been found. But using good skin care methods aids in the daily, steady improvement of follicle health. Since acne is not caused by eating certain foods, restricting the diet is not helpful. Since it is also not caused by "dirty" skin, excessively scrubbing does not help and can even make the skin more irritated. The best skin care for comedones consists of once-a-day cleansing with a mild soap or facial scrub to aid in the removal of excess sebum and dead skin cells. Oil-based makeup should not be used since these can contribute to the buildup of oil in the follicles. Water-based makeup labeled as non-comedogenic can be used safely. TREATMENT FOR BLACKHEADS AND WHITEHEADS Treatment of whiteheads and blackheads takes time. Most treatments take several weeks to months before a noticeable change is seen. BENZOYL PEROXIDE Benzoyl peroxide has an antibacterial effect and may also decrease the chemical reaction that changes the lining of the hair follicle. This may help reduce the plugging that causes comedones. Benzoyl peroxide may be used for a mild case of comedones or to help prevent formation of others. TRETINOIN (RETIN-A) Tretinoin (Retin-A, Avita, Renova) is the mainstay of treatment for whiteheads and blackheads. Tretinoin is a derivative of vitamin A and works by increasing cell turnover and reducing the "stickiness" of the sloughed cells. It helps expel the plugged material returning the pore to normal. Tretinoin can be irritating, so specific instructions on how to use it can be found here. ANTIBIOTICS Prescription topical antibiotics or oral antibiotics might be used if some of the blackheads and whiteheads are infected, but antibiotics do not help with comedones that are not infected. ISOTRETINOIN (ACCUTANE) Isotretinoin (Accutane) is used for severe cystic acne and has many side effects. It is very effective for comedones when used properly, but is not usually prescribed for mild acne of either type. EXTRACTION Extraction may be used by a health care provider on open comedones. This process is performed using a device called a comedone extractor. This is a small, metal, circular instrument that is centered on the comedone and pushes down the surrounding skin, causing the plug to extrude. NO NEED TO SUFFER Whiteheads and blackheads are types of acne that affect many people. There are good treatment options available, so there is no need to suffer with this condition in silence. A primary care provider can initiate treatment for acne and follow mild to moderate cases. Severe cases or those resistant to treatment should be seen by a dermatologist. Regards. Take Care.

Doxycycline hyclate side effects?
i have been prescribed doxycycline hyclate for a mouth infection, but i read the side effects and it said that naseoa or vommiting may occure. i really don't want any of those things, so does anybody know if these side effects are common? or if it most likely won't happen? thanks!
Asked by Rene Titcomb 3 months ago.
Yes, doxycycline is one of the more nausea-prone antibiotics. This side effect can be minimized by taking it with food. Do avoid ingesting dairy products and/or antacids within two hours before and after taking the medication. (It prevents absorption and thus defeats the purpose of taking it in the first place.) But beyond that, take it with as much food as you want to prevent nausea! Answered by Cortney Dhillon 3 months ago.

Asked by Jenelle Frabizzio 3 months ago.
Doxycycline is used to treat bacterial infections, including pneumonia and other respiratory tract infections; Lyme disease; acne; infections of skin, genital, and urinary systems; and anthrax (after inhalational exposure). It is also used to prevent malaria. Doxycycline is in a class of medications called tetracycline antibiotics. It works by preventing the growth and spread of bacteria. Doxycycline is generally well-tolerated. The most common side effects are diarrhea or loose stools, nausea, abdominal pain, and vomiting. Tetracyclines, such as doxycycline, may cause tooth discoloration if used in persons below 8 years of age. Exaggerated sunburn can occur with tetracyclines; therefore, sunlight should be minimized during treatment. Answered by Keitha Ollendick 3 months ago.

I'm wondering have anyone ever use this medicine before and does it work ? Answered by Kena Kruchten 3 months ago.
Doxycycline is useful if your acne is inflamed, pustular etc. It works by getting rid of the bacteria that can form. However if your acne is very mild and is mainly blackheads etc, then you probably won't get a result with doxycycline as this only works for bacterial problems. I would recommend seeing a skin therapist in the first instance, so that they can work out your skin type, get you into a good regime for your skin type and then look at why you are getting the pimples as there can be a range of reasons, from age, hormones, make up, essential fatty acid deficiency etc. Doctors do have a habit of throwing the doxycyclines or tetracyclines at pimples without really understanding why they have been formed. Spots need a bit of a multi pronged approach and there aren't any quick fixes. Answered by Kristin Keney 3 months ago.

Doxycycline Hyclate Acne Answered by Harris Burch 3 months ago.
Dry and/or greasy skin due to poor oil composition of the skin. Thick greasy oils clog pores, lack of oil leads to dryness and irritation. You need thin oils to moisturize while dissolving and clearing gunk in your poors. Try fish oil or seafood. 2 tsp fish oil a day or 4 servings of seafood a week. Stick it out for at least 2 months; it will take a long time to replace all your oil. Any effect after 1-2 days is temporary or random; so even if it makes you break out a little at first, you haven't given it a full try yet. In the short term you can wash and moisturize well, but that will only go so far. Plus excessive washing can be drying and excessive moisturizing can be clogging. Use a small amount of a light moisturizer, made with oil not jelly or grease. Often that means soybean oil or mineral oil. Mineral oil means mined from the ground. So soybean oil is usually better, though mineral oil won't cause too much harm. Clean with soap and water, not a harsh acne cleanser. Even then they only work so well. So you really need the seafood. Antibiotics aren't really good for bacteria long term, they'll come back in force after. Short term they may help. After you get off them find some kefir with acidophilus listed first or 2nd to replace the friendly bacteria they destroyed. Studies show less illness when you have these bacteria, even outside the stomach in places such as the lungs and elsewhere. You want friendly bacteria to fill the void when the antibiotics stop, not harmful ones. In the short term you might also try 100,000+ iu retinol vitamin A (a megadose, and too much for normal use) or one of the acne drugs that is similar to retinol vitamin A. It's some minor harm to your organs, but it helps against bacteria on your skin. At least it doesn't have the other long term drawbacks to your skin that antibiotics and many scrubs do.

Has anyone taken doxycycline for acne, and if so, did it work, and when did you find was the best time of day to take it? Answered by Clayton Grandmont 3 months ago.
You're probably reading something like this on the label: "Doxycycline is best taken on an empty stomach with a full glass of water (8 ounces or 240 milliliters), 1 hour before or 2 hours after meals. Some manufacturers state it can be taken with food or milk if you develop an upset stomach, however doxycycline might be less effective if taken with food or milk (or other products high in calcium). Do not lie down for 30 minutes after taking this medication." The reason that your doctor recommended yogurt is because antibiotics are more like grenades than sniper rifles. They kill the good bacteria that help your body digest food, as well as the bad bacteria that are harming you. Without any bacteria in your system, you become susceptible to a number of problems, but all of these can be avoided by simply replacing the good bacteria by eating food with live cultures, like yogurt. (check the label on the yogurt package, not all yogurts have live cultures.) This medication is most effective if taken on an empty stomach. If it gives you a stomach ache, or makes you feel like you are going to throw up, eat a slice of bread or a couple crackers. Take the Yogurt halfway between doses. Answered by Vernice Kleiber 3 months ago.
My pharmacist said that to avoid an upset stomach to take the Doxycycline with almond milk, which is really not milk. Real milk has calcium and that dilutes the strength of Doxy. Well, lo and behold, I just found out that almond 'milk' has 50% more calcium than cow's milk. This was not good news. I am back to taking the Doxy with H2O. Cheers! Answered by Irena Busick 3 months ago.
No, it's not really okay to stop antibiotics unless the side effects are so unreasonable that the risks outweigh the benefits or treatment of the side effects would be so cumbersome that it wouldn't be worth it. IF the doctor is correct, then bacterial resistance could develop as a result of you suddenly discontinuing the antibiotic without finishing your course. Are you taking this antibiotic with food and LOTS of water? Also, if you're having trouble swallowing, eat less solid foods and more semi-solid or liquid foods. It sucks to study while you're sick/in pain but it happens. Just stick with it. Answered by Cassi Prow 3 months ago.
This must be very new to the market. Please ask the pharmacist that filled your prescription for more info on this. Even webmd.com has no results for this and this is a first for them not to have even a reference. The next after the doctor, which already said something you're not sure of is these experts on medications. I do know that if you crush up any aspirin, not acetaminophen, and mix it with a small amount of water for a paste it works wonders with allot of people with acne. Have you ever tried this? If you really don't want to try this drug, which is advisable especially after checking with the pharmacist, keep this in mind and pass it alone too.

Doxycycline has not been proven to be particularly effective at treating the basterium reposponsible for lyme disease. And if antibiotics are being used to treat Lyme disease the minimum time period for treatment usually extends to weeks, and usually months. Many times patients take the medicine for years. If you did not develop a bulls-eye rash around the tick bite, you probably have little to worry concerning Lyme disease. Just keep an eye out for changes in your health, but don't get paranoid.
