I took a preventative dose of 200mg Doxycycline mono and was able to to donate plasma. Did donating plasma take the antibiotics from my system?
Odd statement: They should not have collected your plasma if you took any antibiotics in the days prior to selling/donating this product. You place anyone who receives the material at risk of a life threatening allergic reaction if they have an allergy to that material. Yes, you pass some of the antibiotic into any body fluids. ...Read more
Been taking doxycycline 7 weeks prostatitus helped but not much can't take cipro (ciprofloxacin) need a stronger antibiotic what is another good choice?
Maybe none...: If doxycycline didn't clear it up, it is unlikely that any other antibiotic will do so. Most prostatitis isn't due to infection; antibiotics often tried but don't help much. Return to the doctor or clinic who prescribed treatment. If in doubt about doctor's expertise, you won't go wrong with one of your country's excellent NHS genitourinary medicine (GUM) clinics. Or a urologist. Good luck! ...Read more

Would it be bad to take an antibiotic such as doryx (doxycycline) for my acne while taking probiotics?
Today i was put on doxycycline for a sinus infection. I take probiotics daily, will this make the antibiotic less effective?
No: Probiotics will not make your antibiotic less effective, but they might protect your gut from having problems like diarrhea. Antibiotics can kill off your natural gut bacterial flora, allowing infectious bacteria to take over. Probiotics can re-establish normal bowel flora so that this is less likely to happen. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
If I take doxycycline for acne but have infection like strep, do I need different antibiotic in addition to doxy or instead of doxy or what?
Probably different: If you develop any bacterial infection while taking doxycycline, usually the bacteria causing it will be resistant to doxy. (If not, the infection wouldn't happen.) So usually an additional antibiotic would be needed to treat it. But not always; and most infections are caused by viruses and don't respond to any antibiotic. Check with your doctor; never treat yourself for a presumed infection. ...Read more
3 days ago i had unsafe sex with a girl and she have chlamydia. I have at home doxycycline i took it now for 2 days. I have to take te antibiotics for?
Stop Rx, get tested: You shouldn't treat yourself. You should tested for chlamydia plus other STDs. Doxycycline is good but needs treatment for 7 days (100 mg twice daily); azithromycin is effective and only a single dose (1 g) is needed. Netherlands has world class STD clinics, and expert care probably is available in Nijmegen. Take no more doxy so testing (Monday?) will be more accurate. ...Read more
I take doxycycline for acne. I also take birth control, does taking this antibiotic make my birth control ineffective?
No: This question was raised 20 years ago. It was determined that the antibiotic does NOT make any birth control less effective. This was settled many years ago. It is distressing to see that this question is still out there. However the OC pill you take might make acne better or worse depending on the progesterone. Also, SPIRONOLACTONE is much more effective, cheaper, and better tolerated than doxycy ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

May not: You need to give it try. It is imperative that you use an alternative method of contraception if you are sexually active. You may consider getting an IUD before stopping bc.

Why the biotin?: Who's told you to take biotin? Take an antibiotic for acne only on a physician's advice and NEVER as the sole treatment, only as an adjunct to topical benzoyl peroxide or retinoic acid or salicylic acid. Acne is serious business especially now that you're getting older. You'll need guidance from your own physician here. ...Read more
