Doxycycline Hyclate 100 mg
If you have certain types of bacterial infections, your healthcare provider may prescribe doxycycline hyclate (doxycycline hydrochloride hemiethanolate hemihydrate). The drug is a prescription antibiotic approved for several uses, including acne, bacterial infections, gum disease, and rosacea. Your dosage of this product will depend on several factors, such as the condition being treated, the particular product used, your age, other medical conditions you may have, and other medications you are taking.
If your healthcare provider prescribes a 100 mg doxycycline hyclate dosage to treat your condition, there are a few different forms of this strength available. Doxycycline 100 mg is available in the form of tablets and capsules (sold under the brand names Adoxa®, Doryx®, Vibra-Tabs®), as well as an injection (100 mg vials for injection).
It is important to take this medication with plenty of water (or other fluids) while in an upright position, in order to prevent the medication from irritating the throat. Make sure that you complete your entire prescription of doxycycline hyclate, even if you start feeling better. This will ensure that the infection is completely treated.
