Doxycycline - Dosage and How to Use

How should Doxycycline be used?

  • This medicine should be taken with or after food.
  • Swallow this medication with a full glass of water and sit or stand upright for at least 30 minutes to prevent gastric irritation.
  • You should complete each course of antibiotics even if you feel better. Incomplete treatment might cause the infection to return or lead to antibiotic resistance. When antibiotic resistance happens, the antibiotic will not be effective anymore.

What should I do if I miss a dose?

If you forget to take a dose, take it as soon as you remember. However, if it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and take the next dose at the usual scheduled time. Do not double your dose to make up for a missed dose.
