Unfortunately this preparation seems to give joint pain as it attacks cartilages.
Dr Fox response:
Thank you for your review. our doctors advise joint aches can be caused by taking doxycycline as a side effect and would not expect this to be formulation specific. They suggest using a different recommended antimalarial tablet going forward and to discontinue taking doxycycline. If the pain does not settle then it is important to discuss with your doctor.
