Although it's not ideal, yes, you can put the contents of doxycycline capsule in apple sauce, but please take the full dose. Might be a good idea to mix it with very little apple sauce so that you can take it in one go. I must warn you though that the taste might not be pleasant, and please take more food before the medicine and drink lots of water after taking the dose. You really want to wash all the medicine down into your stomach and none remaining in the esophagus.
