I took doxy when I was travelling to prevent malaria (not great, i ended up with it, lol). I was fine on it but practically every other person I was with claimed that it was a nightmare if they didnt take it with food! So yeh, the bigger meal the better I think. And lots of water. And dont take it before you go to bed (as I would - oops) because it can do damage to yout osephagus I think. Not major immediate stuff, just over a long period.

Anyway, you prob know all that. Good luck!

i do take it with food, and a large glass of water. i cant take pepto cuz i read somewhere that something in it will decrease the effectiveness of the doxy. oh well.
