Description

Supply of doxycycline?

Doxycycline tablets is a prescription only medication that can be supplied by our trained pharmacist under a patient group direction, following a free consultation, to help prevent malaria. If successful, the pharmacist is happy to make a supply, however, if treatment is not suitable then a supply will not be made and a full refund will be given, as well as suggesting an alternative. 

What is doxycycline?

Doxycycline is a broad spectrum tetracycline- class antibiotic that can be used in the treatment of infections caused by bacteria and certain parasites. Thus, it is used to treat acne, chlamydia, pneumonia, syphilis, cholera and is also used for the prevention of malaria. 

How does Doxycycline work?

The malaria parasite is carried by mosquitoes and is passed onto humans through their saliva when they bite. Not all the parasites are the same, which is why choosing the correct treatment is imperative as one drug may be effective against one parasite but ineffective against another. When doxycycline is taken for the prophylaxis of malaria, it prevents the development of the parasite thus destroying it before it has got the chance to replicate and cause an infection. 

Treatment details

Prophylaxis should commence 1-2 days before travelling to a malarial area, during travel in the malarial areas and for 4 weeks after leaving the malarial area. Please book an appointment with our registered pharmacist if you would like a supply of doxycycline.

Alternatives to doxycycline

The brand Malarone is a more commonly known antimalarial and is also available for purchase from our skilled pharmacist, under a patient group direction. Other popular types include: Lariam and the generic atovaquone/ proguanil. Each antimalarial has a different mechanism of action that helps to prevent malaria whilst travelling abroad. Please speak to the pharmacist for more information.
