Got Doxycycline, have a question.

Recommended Posts

The instructions say to take it twice a day, so does that mean one in the morning and one at night? Or one in the afternoon, one at night? One in the morning, one in the afternoon?

Can anyone who takes it tell me what you do?

Thanks SO much!

I usually took mine about 12 hours apart (9 am and 9 pm)... but it depends on your daily schedule

Thank you! Yeah, that sounds about how I should do it. Did it work for you?

Yes and no.

No because my first month I was taking it incorrectly... you're not suppose to take it with milk/diary, which is what I was doing (since it upsets your stomach). Once I stopped doing that and uped the dosage to 2 pills a day (versus 1) I think it helped.

I am now on a stronger antibiotic, but I think doxy is great for mild/moderate acne (I have moderate/severe).

For 11 months (100mg/day) i've been taking my doxy at around 7am every morning after breakfast and then at 9pm every night after dinner and it has been successful taking it at these times. Just mainly around breakfast then dinner is the go i think.

I hope you have success with doxy hun :)

I only took a 50mg pill once a day. The 100mg messed up my stomach.

You want to keep a balanced dose in your system, so once in the am, and once in the pm.

Don't take it with foods or supplements containing calcium, zinc or iron. They interfere with the absorption of the antibiotic.

Doxy worked ok for me...but I didn't want to take antibiotics long term.

I'm on my 6th week of accutane now.
