Doxycycline is a drug that usually requires a prescription in order to obtain it in the UK. It is possible to buy this drug online without a prescription – or rather the prescription is issued by a doctor online as part of the order process.
Doxycycline can be used to treat a variety of conditions, but it is commonly used as an anti-malaria drug. If you are using it as an anti-malaria drug then you will usually need to start taking it a couple of days before you are due to go to the malaria area so that it can start working properly. Following this, you will normally take one tablet a day while you are in the malaria-infected area and will keep taking it for four weeks once you are back from your trip. This means that for a one-week trip to an area where malaria is a risk, you will require 37 tablets.
As mentioned above, doxycycline can also be used for other conditions. These include doxycycline for chlamydia, skin infections including acne, sexually transmitted diseases, urinary tract infections and eye infections. It can also help to prevent diarrhoea and some other conditions. It is able to have such a broad application because it is a ‘broad spectrum antibiotic’, which means that it has got a lot of different uses.
It is worth knowing that the required dose of doxycycline can vary according to what you are hoping to use it for, and so it is important that you take proper advice and are fully briefed on how to take it before commencing your course of tablets. This is important whether you are prescribed the medication by your GP or obtain it following an online consultation.
Side effects of doxycycline
There are also a few side effects associated with doxycycline, so you should be aware of these before you commence the treatment. It can cause heart burn and indigestion, and make you more sensitive to sunlight. Most of these symptoms are mild, but if you experience any swelling, have difficulty breathing or if your reaction to sunlight is severe, you should seek medical advice straight away. Read the leaflet that comes with the medicine so you are fully appraised of all possible side effects.

Before you can buy doxycycline online, you will need to undergo a consultation to make sure doxycycline is the right option for you. This is important because there are many different anti-malaria medications available, as well as many antibiotics for treating infections, so you need to get the right one. You might find, for instance, that if you are currently on iron tablets you are advised to take a medicine other than doxycycline as something else might be more effective.
Also, different types of malaria tablet are advised for different areas, so this is something else that will be taken into account during your consultation. Make sure you answer the online consultation honestly and carefully so that you can be given the most appropriate drug for your needs, whether this is doxycycline or something else suitable for you.
