Doxycycline is an antibiotic belonging to the tetracycline class. It is generally used as a broad-spectrum antibiotic but is effective as a treatment against malaria, where there is a widespread Chloroquine or Mefloquine resistance.
You should confirm if Doxycycline is used to prevent malaria in the area you are visiting before you travel. You can view the NHS fit for travel guide for further information about travel health.
Malaria is a serious tropical disease caused by infection with the Plasmodium parasite. The parasite is spread to humans through mosquito bites.
The symptoms of malaria usually start between 7-18 days after being infected, and they include fever, muscle pain, vomiting, shivers, headaches and diarrhoea.
You should seek immediate help if you develop malaria symptoms up to a year after travelling to an area with an increased incidence of malaria.
Antimalarials, such as Doxycycline, can both treat and prevent malaria if taken correctly before and after your travels. The type of medication you take will depend on several factors, including the type of malaria common in the country you travel to.
Doxycycline is usually prescribed for people travelling to malaria endemic areas with widespread Chloroquine or Mefloquine resistance.
Adults should take one 100 mg tablet every day, from 2 days before travel, during the stay and 4 weeks after returning home.
Doxycycline is not suitable for children or pregnant women.
Take tablets with a full glass of water on an empty stomach, an hour before food or two hours after food.
Take Antacids containing aluminium, calcium, iron, magnesium or zinc at least 2 hours apart from the Oxytetracycline dose.
Do not take Doxycycline tablets with milk, antacids or aluminium, calcium, iron, magnesium and zinc containing products.
If you forget to take Doxycycline, take it as soon as you remember and continue to take your medicine at the normal time.
Do not take more Doxycycline to make up for the dose you missed.
If you take more Doxycycline than you should, speak to your doctor or go straight to the nearest hospital.
