Doxycycline, a tetracycline antibiotic, is used to treat a variety of infections. It is also used to treat chlamydia, a sexually transmitted infection (STI). Chlamydia is caused by the infection of a bacterium and doxycycline helps to stop the growth of the organism.
You should swallow the capsule with plenty of fluid and preferably after food. This is to reduce the risk of side effect such as stomach upset. You should also be standing or sitting upright while taking the medicine to prevent irritation to the throat. You should NOT take this medicine immediately before lying down.
Like all medicines, doxycycline may cause some side effects, although not everyone gets them.
Serious side effects are unusual. The most common side effects are stomach upset, nausea, vomiting.
However, if you experience severe allergic reactions with symptoms such as difficulty breathing, swollen lips, eyes and face and rash or itching, you should stop taking doxycycline immediately and seek urgent medical advice.
Occasionally, it can increase skin sensitivity to sunlight. You are recommended to avoid strong exposure to sunlight and use sunscreen with high sun protection factor.
For the full list of side effects, please read the patient information leaflet attached below.
