The information provided in the summary table is for reference only. It is important to consult a qualified healthcare professional before starting any anti-malarial treatment, including Doxycycline.

Why choose Doxycycline?

While doxycycline is most commonly used to prevent and treat malaria, it is also frequently prescribed by doctors to treat mild to severe acne. The use of doxycycline, in this instance, can significantly improve the appearance and confidence of those who suffer from this common skin condition.

Alongside these types of infection, it also works on those spread by mites, lice and ticks and, in the case of malaria, mosquitoes, by preventing the growth and spread of bacteria.

How effective is Doxycycline?

While doxycycline is efficient in tackling various infections, including pneumonia, chronic bronchitis, sinusitis, pelvic inflammatory disease and oral herpes, it is very commonly used and highly effective at preventing and treating malaria. It is one of the most effective medications to take when travelling in areas where malaria is resistant to chloroquine.

The effectiveness of doxycycline is affected by certain medicines and supplements, including antacids which contain calcium, magnesium, aluminium and iron. As such, if you are prescribed any of these medications, then it will be advisable to take your doxycycline 2 hours before or 6 hours after taking antacids and 2 hours before or 4 hours after products containing iron.

Whilst it is a highly effective defence against malaria, it does not give 100% protection, so you must also use insect repellants, wear long sleeves and trousers, use mosquito nets and take other such protective measures.

What are the advantages of taking Doxycycline?

The three main anti-malaria tablet options are equally effective, and each one will be prescribed based on the drug resistance to strains of malaria in the area you are travelling to, as well as which is best to be used alongside other medications you are taking and whether or not you are pregnant. There are also no psychological implications with Doxycycline, and it is one of the most affordable forms of an anti-malarial.

What does Doxycycline contain?

Each capsule contains either 50mg or 100mg of Doxycycline base. Other ingredients include:

  • gelatin
  • magnesium stearate
  • shellac glaze
  • sodium lauryl sulfate
  • starch

How does Doxycycline work?

Doxycycline works quickly to kill bacteria that can cause a number of infections in the body. It prevents bacterial protein synthesis, meaning it ultimately stops bacteria from multiplying and spreading. If you’re using this medication to prevent or treat malaria, Doxycycline will kill the parasite responsible for causing the illness. Similarly, if being used to treat acne, the treatment will reduce the overall amount of bacteria on the skin and eventually clear up the problem.

Alternatives to Doxycycline

There are several prescription anti-malarial options available in the UK. Although, note that each treatment has different levels of suitability. The most popular alternatives to Doxycycline in the UK are:

  • Malarone
  • Lariam
  • Chloroquine

Also, the alternative options for Doxycycline are considered ideal for individuals who turn out to be particularly sensitive to the side effects of Doxycycline.

While taking anti-malarial medication, remember that it is vital to practice mosquito bite prevention, as well. Experts recommend the following mosquito bite prevention techniques:

  • Use a high-quality insect repellent
  • Use a mosquito net
  • Close the windows while you sleep
  • Wear protective clothing (full sleeves, pants) to cover exposed skin
  • Avoid staying in areas that are more likely to expose you to mosquitos or insects

What dose should I choose?

While this treatment can be taken regularly, it is usually intended for short-term use, and you will need to consult a medical professional to determine the ideal dose for you. You can also contact our experts at Click Pharmacy via telephone or email for further help and guidance.

Generally, the dosage is 1 or 2 doses prior to departure, as well as throughout your trip and for four weeks after leaving an area where you could be exposed to malaria.

How should I take Doxycycline?

Doxycycline must be taken at the same hour each day for as long as it has been prescribed and not in greater or smaller quantities than recommended. For malaria, it is important to follow the treatment plan exactly to ensure that you are fully protected from the disease.

It is recommended that the tablets are taken while standing, with food and a large glass of water or milk and if you forget to take a tablet, take it as soon as possible.

Do not double the dosage in the case of forgetting a tablet.

What are the side effects of Doxycycline?

It is unusual to experience side effects when taking this medication however, some users may experience nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea, a loss of appetite, itching of the rectum or vagina, a sore or irritated throat and swollen tongue, dry mouth, anxiety, back pain and changes in colour of scars, skin, eyes, nails or mouth.

In some cases, it can also make the skin more sensitive to sunlight, and as such, it would be necessary to wear suntan lotion and long sleeved clothes, as well as a hat and sunglasses, whilst taking the medication.

If you are allergic to doxycycline or else you experience any of the following, it is crucial to seek medical care right away:

  • headache and blurred vision, seeing double or loss of vision
  • a rash that may occur with swollen glands or a fever
  • skin peeling, redness or blistering
  • difficulty breathing and swallowing
  • swelling of the eyes, face, throat, tongue and/or lips
  • unusual bruising and/or bleeding
  • stomach cramps, watery or bloody stools
  • joint and/or chest pain

Long-term side effects can include:

  • discolouration of adult teeth

Can pregnant or breastfeeding women use Doxycycline Capsules?

Pregnant or breastfeeding women should not use Doxycycline Capsules. This is because it can affect the growth of teeth in children.

What if I forget to take Doxycycline Capsules?

If you forget to take your dose of Doxycycline Capsules you should take it as soon as you remember, unless it is almost time for your next dose. If it is almost time for your next dose you should skip the previous dose you just missed and continue as normal. You should never take two doses at once, even if you are making up for a skipped dose.
