Doxycycline is used for the prevention and treatment of malaria. It is particularly suitable for long trips to areas of the world which have become highly chloroquine-resistant.
Dosage for Doxycycline
The adult dose is a single daily tablet, starting 2 days before entering a malarious area, and continuing for 28 days afterwards. If a patient has not taken Doxycycline before, it is recommend that the course should start 7 days, rather than 2, before entering a malarious area. This allows sufficient time to change to an alternative anti-malarial if necessary. For example, one adult travelling for 28 days in a malarious area, would need a total of 58 tablets: 2 + 28 + 28 = 58 (or 63 if Doxycycline has not been taken before).PURCHASING ANY LIFESYSTEMS PRODUCTS OVER £10 IN VALUE WITH YOUR DOXYCYCLINE ORDER ENTITLES YOU TO FREE 1ST CLASS RECORDED DELIVERY, WHICH WILL BE DEDUCTED FROM YOUR INVOICE WHEN PROCESSED.
