I'm taking doxycycline monohydrate 100mg 2x day. Is ok to drink while in on it?

I'm taking doxycycline monohydrate 100mg 2x day. Is ok to drink while in on it?

Varies: While it is best not to drink alcohol with any antibiotic treatment it is not prohibited with the doxycycline. If you just drink an occasional drink then it may not have a problem. However, alcohol tends to eliminate the medication faster from your system so the effectiveness of the medication can be diminished. Be careful in this respect. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Can you tell me about using doxycycline monohydrate for acne treatment?

Can you tell me about using doxycycline monohydrate for acne treatment?

Don't use alone: Never use an antibiotic as sole treatment for acne. It's a reasonably good choice, especially for a few months if you have acne on your trunk or it's otherwise fairly severe. Avoid taking it with milk and/or iron. If you have acne that's causing scarring now, consider Isotretinoin instead if it's offered to you. It's not for the faint-hearted but it works. ...Read more

Am on clindamycin and doxycycline monohydrate can I use them both with my vit c serum if yes should I put the C first or clindamycin & ceramide cream?

Save your money: Ceramide cream is for dry skin, not acne. Vit C "serum" is worthless. Clindamycin solution is seldom worth the trouble. It matters not at all which is applied first. Do NOT use oral clindamycin. When we need to get serious about acne topicals we use adapalene [soon to be OTC], tretinoin, and benzoyl peroxide. ...Read more

Need other drug(s): Usually when these drugs are prescribed together it is because the chance of effectively treating your condition is much high if you take both. I would suspect the Doxycycline is responsible for the vomiting. I suggest you contact your provider who can suggest an alternative, either a substitute for one of your current drugs or something completely different. Good luck! ...Read more
