    What are the uses for Doxycycline?

    To reduce the development of drug-resistant bacteria and maintain effectiveness of doxycycline and other antibacterial drugs, doxycycline should be used only to treat or prevent infections that are proven or strongly suspected to be caused by susceptible bacteria. When culture and susceptibility information are available, they should be considered in selecting or modifying antibacterial therapy. In the absence of such data, local epidemiology and susceptibility patterns may contribute to the empiric selection of therapy. Doxycycline is indicated for the treatment of the following infections:     Rocky mountain spotted fever, typhus fever and the typhus group, Q fever, rickettsialpox, and tick fevers caused by Rickettsiae.     Respiratory tract infections caused by Mycoplasma pneumoniae.     Lymphogranuloma venereum caused by Chlamydia trachomatis.     Psittacosis (ornithosis) caused by Chlamydophila psittaci.     Trachoma caused by Chlamydia trachomatis, although the infectious agent is not always eliminated as judged by immunofluorescence.     Inclusion conjunctivitis caused by Chlamydia trachomatis.     Uncomplicated urethral, endocervical or rectal infections in adults caused by Chlamydia trachomatis.     Nongonococcal urethritis caused by Ureaplasma urealyticum.     Relapsing fever due to Borrelia recurrentis. Doxycycline is also indicated for the treatment of infections caused by the following gram-negative microorganisms:    Chancroid caused by Haemophilus ducreyi.     Plague due to Yersinia pestis.     Tularemia due to Francisella tularensis.     Cholera caused by Vibrio cholerae.     Campylobacter fetus infections caused by Campylobacter fetus.    Brucellosis due to Brucella species (in conjunction with streptomycin).     Bartonellosis due to Bartonella bacilliformis.     Granuloma inguinale caused by Calymmatobacterium granulomatis. Because many strains of the following groups of microorganisms have been shown to be resistant to doxycycline, culture and susceptibility testing are recommended. Doxycycline is indicated for treatment of infections caused by the following gram-negative microorganisms, when bacteriologic testing indicates appropriate susceptibility to the drug:     Escherichia coli     Enterobacter aerogenes     Shigella species     Acinetobacter species     Respiratory tract infections caused by Haemophilus influenzae.     Respiratory tract and urinary tract infections caused by Klebsiella species. Doxycycline is indicated for treatment of infections caused by the following gram-positive microorganisms when bacteriologic testing indicates appropriate susceptibility to the drug:     Upper respiratory infections caused by Streptococcus pneumoniae.     Anthrax due to Bacillus anthracis, including inhalational anthrax (post-exposure): to reduce the incidence or progression of disease following exposure to aerosolized Bacillus anthracis. When penicillin is contraindicated, doxycycline is an alternative drug in the treatment of the following infections:     Uncomplicated gonorrhea caused by Neisseria gonorrhoeae.     Syphilis caused by Treponema pallidum.     Yaws caused by Treponema pertenue.     Listeriosis due to Listeria monocytogenes.     Vincent's infection caused by Fusobacterium fusiforme.     Actinomycosis caused by Actinomyces israelii.     Infections caused by Clostridium species. In acute intestinal amebiasis, doxycycline may be a useful adjunct to amebicides. In severe acne, doxycycline may be useful adjunctive therapy.

    Patient Education

    Doxycycline


    Doxycycline is used to treat a variety of infections caused by certain types of bacteria. Doxycycline is also used to treat or prevent anthrax (a serious infection that may be spread on purpose as part of a bioterror attack) in people who may have been exposed to anthrax in the air and to treat plague and tuleramia (serious infections that may be spread on purpose as part of a bioterror attack). It is also used to prevent malaria. Doxycycline is also used along with other medications to treat acne and rosacea (a skin disease that causes redness, flushing, and pimples on the face). Doxycycline (Oracea) is used only to treat pimples and bumps caused by rosacea. Doxycycline is in a class of medications called tetracycline antibiotics. It works to treat infections by preventing the growth and spread of bacteria. It works to treat acne by killing the bacteria that infects pores and decreasing a certain natural oily substance that causes acne. It works to treat rosacea by decreasing the inflammation that causes this condition. Antibiotics such as doxycycline will not work for colds, flu, or other viral infections. Using antibiotics when they are not needed increases your risk of getting an infection later that resists antibiotic treatment.

    Antibiotics


    What are antibiotics?

    Antibiotics are medicines that fight bacterial infections in people and animals. They work by killing the bacteria or by making it hard for the bacteria to grow and multiply.

    Antibiotics can be taken in different ways:

    • Orally (by mouth). This could be pills, capsules, or liquids.
    • Topically. This might be a cream, spray, or ointment that you put on your skin. It could also be eye ointment, eye drops, or ear drops.
    • Through an injection or intravenously (IV). This is usually for more serious infections.

    What do antibiotics treat?

    Antibiotics only treat certain bacterial infections, such as strep throat, urinary tract infections, and E. coli.

    You may not need to take antibiotics for some bacterial infections. For example, you might not need them for many sinus infections or some ear infections. Taking antibiotics when they're not needed won't help you, and they can have side effects. Your health care provider can decide the best treatment for you when you're sick. Don't ask your provider to prescribe an antibiotic for you.

    Do antibiotics treat viral infections?

    Antibiotics do not work on viral infections. For example, you shouldn't take antibiotics for:

    What are the side effects of antibiotics?

    The side effects of antibiotics range from minor to very severe. Some of the common side effects include:

    More serious side effects can include:

    Call your health care provider if you develop any side effects while taking your antibiotic.

    Why is it important to take antibiotics only when they're needed?

    You should only take antibiotics when they are needed because they can cause side effects and can contribute to antibiotic resistance. Antibiotic resistance happens when the bacteria change and become able to resist the effects of an antibiotic. This means that the bacteria continue to grow.

    How do I use antibiotics correctly?

    When you take antibiotics, it is important that you take them responsibly:

    • Always follow the directions carefully. Finish your medicine even if you feel better. If you stop taking them too soon, some bacteria may survive and re-infect you.
    • Don't save your antibiotics for later.
    • Don't share your antibiotic with others.
    • Don't take antibiotics prescribed for someone else. This may delay the best treatment for you, make you even sicker, or cause side effects.
