Medical information

Doxycycline for chlamydia

Doxycycline is an antibiotic used to treat chlamydia infection. It is used mainly as an alternative to the antibiotic azithromycin.

Doxycycline is equally as effective as azithromycin, but whereas azithromycin is a single dose treatment, doxycycline treatment needs to be taken twice daily for 7 days.

  • Avoid sexual contact whilst taking doxycycline and for 7 days afterwards, until no longer infectious.
  • People with a positive chlamydia test and their sexual partners should be treated, at the same time if possible.
  • Tests take 6 weeks to go negative after chlamydia has been successfully treated.

Doxycycline antibiotic is prescription only medicine – our doctors will issue the prescription online direct to our pharmacy.

For background information about chlamydia please see chlamydia information page.

Alternative antibiotic

The most frequently used antibiotic for the treatment of chlamydia is azithromycin taken as a single dose.

Azithromycin is preferred by most doctors and patients because it is a single dose, although it is more expensive than doxycycline.

Side effects and cautions

The most frequently seen side effects are nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea and acid type indigestion and heart burn.

Other side effects are rare. Doxycycline can cause light sensitivity. Strong sun and sun beds should be avoided whilst doxycycline is being taken.

For a full list of side effects and information about taking doxycycline, including interactions with other medication, see the patient information leaflet on doxycycline.

Cautions

Doxycycline should not be taken at the same time as antacids or milk as these can reduce absorption.
