More information

  • Usage

    Doxycycline is a medication (available both orally and in an intravenous form) that, like minocycline, belongs to a class of broad-spectrum antibiotics known as tetracycline antibiotics. Marketed under the brand name Doryx, doxycycline has a wide range of uses in the treatment of bacterial and parasitic infections. Doxycycline is used in the treatment of acne, sexually transmitted infections such as chlamydia identified by STD testing, Lyme disease and pneumonia. Doxycycline is also used in malaria prevention. Doxycycline works by preventing bacteria from making proteins using the 30S ribosomal subunit, thereby preventing reproduction. Doxycycline and alcohol should not be taken together. Doxycycline has historically been used along with azithromycin in the treatment of sexually transmitted diseases.

  • Doxycycline – Side Effects

    Doxycycline can cause side effects when used. Common side effects include nausea, diarrhea, vomiting and a rash. Doxycycline can also increase the risk of getting sunburned and photosensitivity and can cause permanent staining of teeth in children. Doxycycline can also cause pill esophagitis and colitis and can interact with a variety of different foods, resulting in lower efficacy. Anyone with a hypersensitivity or allergy to doxycycline should not use the medication. All concerns and questions regarding doxycycline side effects should be discussed with one’s pharmacist and provider before use.

  • Cost Information

    Doxycycline – both generic doxycycline and branded doxycycline – are moderately affordable at under $1 per pill at most major pharmacies. Doxycycline used to be even more affordable but the price has increased somewhat in recent years. Some insurance plans will also cover the cost of doxycycline, depending on what it is prescribed for. Doxycycline does require a prescription from a medical provider before a pharmacy can dispense it. Online doxycycline coupons may also be available. Farmington Drugs & Medical Supplies takes pride in offering the most cost efficient services and prescriptions to our patients.

  • Dosage

    Doryx contains doxycycline hyclate and comes in the form of delayed-release tablets that are taken orally. Doxycycline hyclate itself can be found as a yellow crystalline powder and is mixed with other inert ingredients to make Doryx. Following administration of an oral dose, doxycycline is virtually completely absorbed. Doxycycline, like other tetracycline antibiotics, are concentrated in bile by the liver and excreted in the urine and feces with a serum half-life of 18-22 hours. Doryx (doxycycline) is typically available in 75 mg, 100 mg and 150 mg delayed-release tablets. Doryx tablets should be stored at 25° C.
