Doxycycline is a broad-spectrum antibiotic from the tetracycline family. It is used in acne, respiratory tract infections as well as genital infections.
If it is being used in acne it is quite common to see a worsening of the condition for the first 4 weeks as the pimples which were below the skin come to the surface.
Doxycycline 100mg is available from Relimeds as Doxt – SL capsules made by Dr Reddy. These contain 5 billion lactobacillus spores to help protect you from the gastric side effects of these antibiotics. They come in packs of 10.
