What is Doxycycline?

Doxycycline is an antibiotic used to combat many different bacterial infections and is known under many brand names including Monodox, Doryx, Vibramycin, Oracea and Acticlate. It is particularly effective at treating a number of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) including:

For the vast majority of people, a single course of Doxycycline antibiotics is enough to completely cure any of these STIs, meaning treatment is effective and quick.

You can buy Doxycycline capsules online from euroClinix for the treatment of chlamydia, NSU and ureaplasma urealyticum after completing an online consultation, reviewed by one of our registered doctors.

Other uses of Doxycycline

Doxycycline can treat and prevent a wide range of infections including, but not limited to:

At euroClinix, we also offer Doxycycline as an antimalarial. It is a popular medication option when preventing certain types of malaria in travellers who will be visiting moderate to high-risk areas for less than 4 months. Although you can buy the same dose of Doxycycline for malaria, it will require a separate consultation.

How does Doxycycline work?

Doxycycline is an antimicrobial (antibiotic) treatment that fights bacterial infections. It contains the active ingredient doxycycline hyclate which belongs to a particular class of antibiotics called tetracycline antibiotics. These antibiotics work by interfering with the microorganism’s ability to make proteins that are essential for it to survive and reproduce. Due to its ability to penetrate deep into cells, Doxycycline is particularly effective for infections of ‘intracellular bacteria’ that can only survive within the cell. This is true of the microbes that cause certain STDs such as chlamydia and syphilis as well as other bacterial infections like anthrax and acne.

Who can take Doxycycline?

Doxycycline is safe for most adults over 18 years of age, however some people should take caution when taking this medication. Some contraindications include those who have:

This is because Doxycycline can make symptoms of these conditions unstable. If you are not sure, consult your doctor before taking Doxycycline.

You should also not take Doxycycline if you have had an allergic reaction to Doxycycline or any of its ingredients. It is also not usually recommended for pregnant women, particularly in the last half of pregnancy. This is because it has been found to cause complications in bone development in infants. Doxycycline can also be excreted into breast milk. Short-term use in breastfeeding women has a low risk of complications, however risks of long-term use are not known so it is generally not advised.

Does Doxycycline interact with other medications?

Doxycycline can interact with some medications so it’s important you talk to a healthcare professional if you take any prescription or over the counter medications and supplements. This is because Doxycycline, if taken with certain other medicines, can cause adverse effects such as preventing Doxycycline absorption.

Some drug interactions include:

If you’re not sure whether you take any of these medications, speak to your doctor before taking Doxycycline.

How do I take Doxycycline?

For the treatment of non-specific urethritis, chlamydia and ureaplasma urealyticum, a doctor will normally recommend that you take one 100mg Doxycycline capsule twice daily. You must swallow the capsule whole with a full glass of water. If you miss a dose, take your missed dose as soon as you remember and take your next dose at your regular time. If your missed dose is too close to your next dose, just wait until your next dose. You should not take two doses at once.

The length of the course will depend on the severity of your symptoms, and will be at the discretion of one of our registered doctors. However, you will generally be prescribed a course lasting between 7 and 10 days. You will probably start to feel better within a few days of treatment, however it’s important you finish the full course. This will ensure the infection is treated, prevent it from returning and prevent the bacteria becoming resistant to treatment over time.

You should not drink alcohol throughout the course of treatment. Doxycycline can also make you sensitive to sunlight and cause sunburn. Avoid going in direct sunlight for extended periods and regularly apply sun cream.

What are the side effects of Doxycycline?

As with other prescription medicines, Doxycycline can cause some side effects. The most common side effects are normally mild and tend to pass very quickly. The most common side effects include: headaches, nausea or vomiting. Speak to your doctor if you notice anything more serious or if these side effects are particularly bothersome.

Neurological

It is possible that you may experience headaches as a result of this medication. These should only be mild, but if they are severe you should stop taking Doxycycline and contact your doctor.

Gastric

Mild gastric side effects are fairly common and could include nausea, diarrhoea and an upset stomach.

Skin

You may notice a mild skin rash that may be itchy. If you experience a severe skin reaction, which is far more rare, you should seek medical advice immediately.

Liver

Liver problems as a result of this medication are extremely rare but should be taken very seriously if they occur. If you experience symptoms such as jaundice, you must contact a doctor immediately.

Does Doxycycline cause tooth decay?

It was previously thought that doxycycline causes tooth decay and staining, particularly in the tooth development of young children. However, subsequent research shows this is not the case as doxycycline binds less readily to calcium. In fact, low doses of Doxycycline can be used to treat gum disease by improving tooth attachment and reducing gum pockets.
