Oral antibiotic: Hi AngelaC771, Doxycycline 100 mg is an oral antibiotic that belongs to a class of antibiotics called "tetracyclines". This antibiotic is used for many, many types of bacterial infections. It is generally dosed once a day for mild-moderate infections, but can be used twice daily for severe infections. It should be avoided if you currently are, or thinking of becoming pregnant.

Why?: would you? No harm, but certainly not ecactly a great medical idea if weed is possiobly laced with other chemical or if you are using other drugs, Additionally, doxycycline can interact with UV light rays causing a rash ( photosermatitis)- why the weed?
