Do I take one tablet twice a day with meals for 7 days?
10 May 2010
The dosage as indicated is: Doxycycline Hyclate tabs 20 mg twice daily as an adjunct following scaling and root planing may be administered for up to 9 months. Doxycycline Hyclate should be taken twice daily at 12 hour intervals, usually in the morning and evening. It is recommended that if Doxycycline Hyclate is taken close to meal times, allow at least one hour prior to or two hours after meals. Safety beyond 12 months and efficacy beyond 9 months have not been established.
Administration of adequate amounts of fluid along with the tablets is recommended to wash down the drug and reduce the risk of esophageal irritation and ulceration.
However check with your doc./pharmacist who has prescribed the drug, hope this helps?
