Chlamydia Treatment Antibiotic Doxycycline

Chlamydia Treatment Antibiotic Doxycycline is one of the most common ways of treating chlamydia. It’s usually prescribed to be taken twice a day for seven to 14 days. Once it has been started it typically clears up the infection within seven days.

It is important to remember that you should not have sex for at least seven days until the prescribed course of the medication has been finished. If this rule is not followed, it can lead to reinfection, therefore the doctor will recommend that your partner also complete a course of treatment.

Once you think that the infection has disappeared, make sure to get retested after three months. This will ensure you know that the infection has completely cleared up after using Chlamydia Treatment Antibiotic Doxycycline.

What is Doxycycline?

We are often asked the question “What is Doxycycline?”

Doxycycline is an anti-biotic used to treat a wide range of infections caused by bacteria. It was first manufactured during the 1950s and is derived from oxytetracyline, also an anti-biotic, primarily used to treat acne.

So how does Doxycycline work? Doxycycline works by inhibiting bacterial protein synthesis by binding to a ribosomal subunit, preventing amino acids from being linked together. Without proteins, bacteria cannot perform properly.

As an antibiotic it doesn’t necessarily kill the bacteria, but rather stops the bacteria from reproducing. This is why Doxycycline is called a bacteriostatic.

How to take Doxycycline can be found within your patient information leaflet included with your purchase.

Doxycycline Side Effects

Like with all medicine, Doxycycline Side Effects can occur but these aren’t experienced by everyone. If you experience any of these Doxycycline Side Effects, especially if any of them are getting progressively worse, immediately stop and speak to your doctor as soon as possible.

Below is a list of Doxycycline Side Effects experienced more, or less when people have taken the Doxycycline for chlamydia tablets.

If you notice any of the following side effects, stop taking the medicine and immediately contact your doctor or go to accident and emergency. Although the symptoms listed are very rare, they can be severe.

  • Symptoms of an allergic reaction such as sudden wheeziness, difficulty in breathing, chest pain, fever, sudden swellings of the face, lips, tongue, throat, hands or feet, rash or itching, pericarditis.
  • Fever swollen lymph nodes or skin rash. These may be symptoms of a condition known as DRESS (Drug Reaction with Eosinophilia and Systemic Symptoms) and can be severe/life threatening.

Below is a list of more Common, Uncommon and Rare side effects that are sometimes caused by Doxycycline. If any of them occur to you, contact your doctor as soon as possible.

  • Sensitivity to sunlight
  • Increased pressure in the skull
  • Bulging fontanelles of infants
  • Low blood pressure
  • Aches in the joints and muscles

Doxycycline Alcohol

Doxycycline Alcohol can and may reduce the effect of the medicine. It is not recommended and therefore advised that you avoid drinking any Doxycycline Alcohol.

Drinking alcohol with Doxycycline or other such antibiotics can cause symptoms such as dizziness, drowsiness, stomach issues, nausea and vomiting.

If you do drink alcohol whilst in the middle of Doxycycline it can slow your immune response and consequently impact your recovery.

If you need any guidance on how to take doxycycline, please refer to your patient information leaflet.

Doxycycline 100mg dosage

Doxycycline 100mg Dosage depends on why you’re taking it. The dose can vary between Doxycycline 100mg dosage to 200mg once or twice a day. If you’ve been told to take it more than once a day, you should try and space your doses evenly throughout the day.

Doxycycline can also be taken to prevent malaria. The dose for treating malaria is usually Doxycycline 100mg dosage once a day. The treatment should be started one or two days before going near an area where malaria could be contracted. This should be continued for four weeks after leaving the area.

 

What is Doxycycline Used For – Chlamydia Treatment

We are often asked the question “What is doxycycline used for?”

What is Doxycycline used for? As well as treating Chlamydia, Doxycycline can also be used to treat Malaria. It is the relatively cheap option for treatment.

If you’re taking Doxycycline for acne, a positive side effect of that would be protection against malaria. This is usually the case if you are taking an adequate dose.

 

How Long After Chlamydia Treatment Should I Retest

A question a lot of people have is How long after chlamydia treatment should I retest?

The CDC (Centres for Disease Control and Prevention) recommends that any person who has tested positive for chlamydia should be retested three months after treatment.

Chlamydia reinfections are quite common with as many as one in five people catching a repeat infection within the first few months of post-treatment. Not treating chlamydia at all can increase the risk of developing a variety of diseases such as pelvic inflammatory disease. These risks increase if a person becomes re-infected.

Again, retesting is usually done around three months after treatment to detect early repeat infections to prevent any further complications.

This should answer how long after chlamydia treatment should I retest.

Chlamydia Treatment Azithromycin

Chlamydia treatment Azithromycin is an alternative treatment to Doxycycline. Azithromycin or Doxycycline is usually prescribed to treat chlamydia and are both taken orally.

Taking Chlamydia Treatment Azithromycin usually resolves the infection within one or two weeks. Oral antibiotics almost always work for treating Chlamydia if you and your partner take the treatment as directed.

It is typically recommended that a single dose of Azithromycin is 1 gram, taken orally.

If you need any guidance on how to take doxycycline, please refer to your patient information leaflet.

• It is best to take your capsules at the same time(s) each day, when standing or while sitting.

• If your stomach is upset, Doxycycline capsules can be taken with milk or a meal.

Do not have sex until you have completed all 7 days of treatment.

Chlamydia

Chlamydia is one of the most common sexually transmitted infections (STIs) in the UK.It is caused by bacteria called Chlamydia trachomatis. It can infect both men and women. Women can get chlamydia in the cervix, rectum, or throat. Men can get chlamydia in the urethra (inside the penis), rectum, or throat.

It’s passed on through unprotected sex (sex without a condom) and is particularly common in sexually active teenagers and young adults.

If you live in England, are under 25 and are sexually active, it’s recommended that you get tested for chlamydia every year or when you change sexual partner.

Symptoms of chlamydia

Most people with chlamydia don’t notice any symptoms and don’t know they have it.

If you do develop symptoms, you may experience:

pain when peeing
unusual discharge from the vagina, penis or rectum (back passage)
in women, pain in the tummy, bleeding after sex and bleeding between periods
in men, pain and swelling in the testicles
If you think you’re at risk of having an STI or have any symptoms of chlamydia, visit your GP, community contraceptive service or local genitourinary medicine (GUM) clinic to get tested.

How do you get chlamydia?

Chlamydia is a bacterial infection. The bacteria are usually spread through sex or contact with infected genital fluids (semen or vaginal fluid).

You can get chlamydia through:

unprotected vaginal, anal or oral sex
sharing sex toys that aren’t washed or covered with a new condom each time they’re used
your genitals coming into contact with your partner’s genitals – this means you can get chlamydia from someone even if there is no penetration, orgasm or ejaculation
infected semen or vaginal fluid getting into your eye
It can also be passed by a pregnant woman to her baby – read about the complications of chlamydia for more information about this.

Chlamydia can’t be passed on through casual contact, such as kissing and hugging, or from sharing baths, towels, swimming pools, toilet seats or cutlery.

Is chlamydia serious?

Although chlamydia doesn’t usually cause any symptoms and can normally be treated with a short course of antibiotics, it can be serious if it’s not treated early on.

If left untreated, the infection can spread to other parts of your body and lead to long-term health problems, such as pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), epididymo-orchitis (inflammation of the testicles) and infertility. It can also sometimes cause reactive arthritis.

This is why it’s important to get tested and treated as soon as possible if you think you might have chlamydia.

Read more about the complications of chlamydia.

Getting tested for chlamydia

Testing for chlamydia is done with a urine test or a swab test. You don’t always need a physical examination by a nurse or doctor.

Anyone can get a free and confidential chlamydia test at a sexual health clinic, a genitourinary medicine (GUM) clinic or a GP surgery.

People under 25 years old can also get tested by the National Chlamydia Screening Programme (NCSP). This is often in places such as pharmacies, contraception clinics or colleges. If you live in England, you’re under 25 and you’re sexually active, you should get tested for chlamydia every year or when you change sexual partner, as you’re more likely to catch it.

You can also buy chlamydia testing kits to do at home.

Read more about getting a chlamydia test.

How chlamydia is treated

Chlamydia can usually be treated easily with antibiotics. You may be given some tablets to take all on 1 day, or a longer course of capsules to take for a week.

You shouldn’t have sex until you and your current sexual partner have finished treatment. If you had the 1-day course of treatment, you should avoid having sex for a week afterwards.

It’s important that your current sexual partner and any other recent sexual partners you’ve had are also tested and treated to help stop the spread of the infection.

The NCSP recommends that under-25s who have chlamydia should be offered another test around 3 months after being treated. This is because young adults who test positive for chlamydia are at increased risk of catching it again.

Sexual health or GUM clinics can help you contact your sexual partners. Either you or the clinic can speak to them, or they can be sent a note advising them to get tested. The note won’t have your name on it, so your confidentiality will be protected.

Preventing chlamydia

Anyone who is sexually active can catch chlamydia. You’re most at risk if you have a new sexual partner or don’t use a barrier method of contraception, such as a condom, when having sex.

You can help to prevent the spread of chlamydia by:

using a condom every time you have vaginal or anal sex
using a condom to cover the penis during oral sex
using a dam (a piece of thin, soft plastic or latex) to cover the female genitals during oral sex or when rubbing female genitals together
not sharing sex toys
If you do share sex toys, wash them or cover them with a new condom between each person who uses them.
