Pharmacist Tip
Birth control pills may not work while you take doxycycline. Make sure that you use other forms of birth control while taking doxycycline.     
Doxycycline is a prescription medicine that you may be taking to treat bacterial infections. Doxycycline works by keeping bacteria from growing and spreading.

Doxycycline treats many types of infections, including urinary tract infections, acne, gonorrhea, chlamydia, gum disease, pneumonia, and other respiratory tract infections.

Doxycycline is sometimes given to patients to prevent infections such as malaria. Doxycycline will not work to treat fungal or viral infections, such as common colds or the flu. Doxycycline does not prevent sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV/AIDS or genital herpes.
