I just started taking iron supplements and I also need to take doxycycline for a short period of time. Will either of the 2 affect each other?
If you take iron supplements and doxycycline at the same time then less doxycycline will be absorbed. It is best to separate the doses of iron and doxycycline by 2 to 3 hours.
