As with any other antibiotic, one of the key pieces of advice could not be more simple to follow. When you are given a course of treatment, take all the tablets prescribed for as long as directed. It does not matter that you feel better.
The reason is to reduce the risk that some of the bacteria survive and become immune to the antibiotic. If this happens, the next time you are infected, the antibiotic will be less effective until it no longer works.
That said, for now Doxycycline remains one of the most effective antibiotics to control bacterial infections, mainly affecting the eyes, throat, breathing, digestive system and the urinary tract. However, it is “specific”. So if your physician has correctly diagnosed which bacteria are infecting you, Doxycycline will “cure” you. Otherwise, it will be ineffective. It is also completely useless if you have a viral infection.
Thus, self-diagnosis is not recommended. You should only buy and use this drug when you have a proper diagnosis of your condition. The only situation in which it is “safe” for you to prescribe the use of this drug is to reduce the risk of malaria. Start one or two days before travel and continue for a month after you return.
