Doxycycline Hyclate
Indications And Clinical Uses: In adult patients with urethritis, cervicitis and vaginitis with a positive test for C. trachomatis and/or U. urealyticum, clinical resolution and absence of detectable organisms have only been observed at completion of oral therapy with doxycycline. Relapses or reinfection can occur. In these cases, limited data suggest that some patients may derive clinical benefit from the oral administration of doxycycline or an alternative therapy. The effect on long-term morbidity has not been established.

Symptoms And Treatment Of Overdose: Symptoms and Treatment: Specific information on symptoms or treatment of overdosage with doxycycline is not available. Treatment, therefore, should be symptomatic and gastric lavage may be considered for overdosage with the oral preparation. tag_DosageDosage

Dosage And Administration: Doxycycline should be given with or after a meal in order to minimize the possibility of gastric upset. Antacids and iron preparations impair absorption and should not be given concomitantly to patients taking doxycycline.

Doxycycline should be given to patients with adequate amounts of fluid while standing or sitting upright to reduce the risk of esophageal injury.

Adults: For treatment of uncomplicated urethral, endocervical, or vaginal infections in adults associated with C. trachomatis and U. urealyticum: 100 mg by mouth, twice a day for at least 10 days.

No alteration in recommended dosage schedule need be made when treating patients with impaired renal function.
