Are there any restrictions on this medicine? Originally I was on tetracycline which restricted options on meals - ie no calcium or iron. I was wondering if certain types of food might prevent this antibiotic from being fully absorbed? Thanks in advance.

I've been on it. No restrictions as far as I can remember. I've been on mino, tetra, and ceph, and tetra was the only one that had absorption problems.

Alright I briefly switched to a generic version of doxycycline which stated the same directions as tetra, while the Doryx claimed it could be taken at any time with or without meals -which was confusing.

The cephalexin is a definite - and welcome - change of pace, not having to devote hours of the day to the select meal you're taking your medicine with.
