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

I was just put on monodox but was already on toviaz (fesoterodine). Do I take both? Is that safe?

I was just put on monodox but was already on toviaz (fesoterodine). Do I take both? Is that safe?

They R fine together: Monodox is an antibiotic famously known as doxycycline. Toviaz (fesoterodine) is a long-termedication for overactive bladder (bladder spasm) and has no known interaction with monodox. I assume u are given Monodox for some type of infections, possibly 2x/day for about 10-14 days? So, I would take both as prescribed. If you experience significant side effects, consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more

I keep sinus infections and Levaquin (levofloxacin) doesn't fully get rid of them so is monodox the cure all my Dr claims?

I keep sinus infections and Levaquin (levofloxacin) doesn't fully get rid of them so is monodox the cure all my Dr claims?

Sorry, no cure-all: Recurrent sinusitis usually isn't the result only of infection. Typically allergy or partial blockage of a sinus opening is responsible for recurrent infections. Either levofloxacin (Levaquin) or doxycycline (Monodox) is likely to help any particular infection, but neither is better than the other, and probably neither would prevent all infections unless allergy or blockage is also cleared up. ...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
