Medicines are not ordinary items of eCommerce so it's really important that you provide us with as much information as possible when filling out our forms so we can prescribe safely.

How many Doxycycline should I buy?

Knowing how many to buy can be tricky. Just remember that you need to take one capsule daily starting at least 2 days before arrival, every day there and for four weeks (28 days) on leaving. The easiest way to add this up is; holiday length + 30 capsules.

Travellers have reliably used Doxycycline for many years as a malaria tablet for travel around malaria regions where there is Chloroquine resistance. Areas that are resistant to Chloroquine include but are not limited to, Africa, South America and parts of Asia and Australiasia. Doxycycline is a tetracycline antibiotic used frequently for bacterial infections that affects the blood stage of the malaria parasite killing it after it has emerged from the liver.

How do I take Doxycycline?

Doxycycline should be used as follows:

How often should casules be taken?ONE capsule daily.
When should I start treatment?TWO days before entering the malaria region and whilst there.
How often when leaving risk area?DAILY for FOUR weeks after leaving the risk area.

A typical 2 week (14 days) trip will need 44 capsules (2 + 14 + 28 capsules).

It is important to note that no antimalarials are 100% effective and Travelpharm cannot stress how important insect repellents and mosquito nets are. Always make sure you finish your course!

What Side Effects May I Experience?

Doxycycline is generally well tolerated but it has some significant side effects that must be mentioned. Doxycycline must always be swallowed with a full glass of water to prevent irritation of the throat. It is also associated with sensitivity to sunlight. This is called photosensitivity and affects about 3% of patients.

Who Can't Use Doxycycline?

Our specialist pharmacist will assess all orders for suitability. Doxycycline is not suitable for female patients who are pregnant or planning a pregnancy. It is also not suitable for children under 12 years of age. Doxycycline cannot be prescribed as it will damage the teeth and bones of unborn babies and children under 12 years.
