Doxycycline people


Recommended Posts

My son has just started doxcycline 400 mg./day. I have read that it is less effective if given with a full meal (snack or small meal OK) or with vitamins. I have been trying to give it this way:

 

Breakfast at 8:00

Doxy. at 9:00

Vitamins with lunch

Probiotics between lunch and dinner

Vitamins with dinner

Doxy at 9 pm with a snack

 

Does this sound OK? My question is about the 9:00 doxy. Is it OK that it is being given an hour after breakfast (and often a large breakfast)?

 

Thank you!

When my daughter was on Minocycline, the llmd said you can give with food even though it states otherwise. There was a thread on here where others mentioned they had to give doxy with food to avoid an upset stomach.

 

Thank you, I think I will continue on the schedule I have and keep the doxy. with at least some food. It's not worth the stomach upset. That is one thing he has never had trouble with, and I would hate if that started.

I would give with food. My LlmDs advised to take w food. If I took doxy on an empty stomach I'd throw up.
