Doxycycline is an antibiotic used to treat a few different types of bacterial infection. Antibiotics are divided into several classes and doxycycline belongs to the tetracycline class

Doxycycline is the recommended first-line treatment for chlamydia infections in the UK.

Antibiotics work against bacteria. For their own survival and reproduction bacteria need to produce certain proteins. Doxycycline works by entering the bacteria cells and blocking the production of these proteins.

If taken correctly, doxycycline helps to completely get rid of a bacterial infection like chlamydia in 95% of the cases. To make sure that doxycycline will work properly, it’s important that you complete the treatment by taking every single dose on time.

Doxycycline helps you to fight the bacteria that are causing an infection in your body, but it does not prevent you from catching infections like chlamydia again. During your chlamydia treatment you’re advised to avoid vaginal, oral, and anal sex, even with a condom. The same is true for your partner. This will ensure you don’t pass the infection to other people or catch it again while you are recovering.

If you do decide to have sex anyway, use a condom to make sure you avoid spreading your infection.

If you are under 25 you should take a chlamydia test 3 months after finishing your treatment.

How to Take

The right dosage of doxycycline depends on the condition you are taking it for.

In order to successfully treat chlamydia, doxycycline must be taken for 7 days, twice a day, at 100 mg per capsule.

The capsules must be swallowed with water, in the morning and in the evening, and can be taken with or without food.

You should sit up for 30 minutes after each capsule.
