It is beneficial not only for humans, but also for other species, such as cats and dogs which require consultation with a verified veterinarian before giving a dose. This drug is used to treat such infections as Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever which causes rashes on skin and headaches, ehrlichiosis, as well as salmon poisoning caused by eating raw and poor quality of salmon, toxoplasmosis caused by parasite Gondi, leptospriris also known as a disease caused by the infection from animal's urine.

Doxycycline must be stored at room temperature in a dry place away from sunlight and reach of children.
Instructions on Taking
The doses should be taken through the mouth with the meals as food items have not been found to show detrimental to the usage except milk and dairy products. The patient must consume fluids, such as water and fruit juices as these will help in the quick absorption. Doxycycline reaches the intestines through food where it is absorbed into the bloodstream and more fluids would help in the effective breakdown of food in intestines and thus results of the medicine will be more effective. The Doxycycline tablets should not be crushed and consumed instead they could be cut and swallowed with fluids or can be made into powder form and sprinkled on food items and juices. They are prescribed to be taken in a row as stated otherwise by the doctor. Doxycycline should not be given to pregnant ladies as it can deter the growth and development of the fetus. In the later stage of pregnancy, the consumption of this drug can reach the baby through the mother's milk, thus women should not breastfeed their babies while on Doxycycline. This medicine is also found to be allergic to some people and as such, it is advised not to use it if any irrational or abnormal behavior is observed by the patient after taking. In such the doctor or the physician should be contacted before resuming the medications stopping them permanently.
Doxycycline is prescribed to be used in a row of days of usually 7 to 14 days. However, its usage can vary depending upon the medical conditions of the patients, such as age, weight, past medical record, allergies, organ transplants, surgeries, mental state etc. Thus it is necessary to take this drug only after doctor's consultation and examination. A general adult is dosed with 200mg of Doxycycline for the first day with 12 hours of a gap for the next dose. After the first day the dosage is reduced to 100mg per day till further statement from the doctor/physician. The effects of Doxycycline have not been confirmed to be safe on children thus they should be given to kids below 8 only in life-threatening situations and the amount of the dose must also be kept minimal as of 2.5mg per day. In case the patient skips the dose at any point, he/she should not rush to overdose in order to compensate for the skipped dosage but instead should contact doctor /physician regarding the issue.
