I am prescribed 100MG doxycycline hyclate. It says not to lie down for 30 minutes after taking it, what will happen if I do lie down after taking it?

Esophagitis. Doxycycline can cause drug-induced esophagitis, or inflammation of the esophagus. You are instructed not to lay down so that the pill can travel quickly down the esophagus and into the stomach. If you lay down there is the potential that the pill will remain in your esophagus as it dissolves and cause inflammation. Read more...

I was prescribed doxycycline hyclate for five days and doxycycline mono hyclate for 2 days for insurance reasons. Will this treat chlamydia?

Not necessarily. I usually prescribe doxycycline (do not take of you are pregnant) 100mg orally twice a day for 21days. That usually cures the infection. It would be wise to talk to your physician and tell him/her that you received a second opinion and what does he/she say. Read more...

Infected cyst just under eyebrow. Prescribed doxycycline hyclate and mupirocin. How quick will these two meds reduce cyst size. Will I still have to get this drained. Or will meds remove cyst. Not sure why derm didn't go ahead and drain.?

Close to the eye. I would think the dermatologist factored in the risk of incision and drainage in an area like that... For example - cut too deep and you may damage the eye, that would be right underneath the scalpel blade (at least the top part of the eye and some important muscles that control the eye). Doxycycline and that ointment should work -it's dual therapy. See the doctor in a couple days if no better. Read more...
