Oxytetracycline belongs to a group of antibiotics called the tetracyclines. It is used to treat a wide range of bacterial infections, as well as acne.
The oxytetracycline antibiotic targets the bacteria which inflame the skin when you have acne. The treatment works since the antibiotic kills the bacteria which contribute to your acne (Propionebacterium acnes). This bacteria feeds on the sebum produced by glands in the skin. These bacteria produce waste products that inflame the sebaceous glands, producing whiteheads and itchy, red skin. By using an antibiotic treatment to control the growth of the bacterial population which result in acne, your acne can be managed.
You should not stop your treatment without your doctor’s consent, even if your skin has cleared up. If you stop without consent, you may get recurring acne, which is more severe. As with all antibiotic treatments, it is important you finish the course as prescribed.
There are many common myths about what causes acne. A bad and unbalanced diet is, of course, bad for your general health. However, no clinical studies have shown a direct link between food and acne. Many people think that stress can bring on acne. However, this is not true; it can only worsen your acne if you already suffer from it. The best thing to do is to follow your treatment plan and remember to take your pills at the correct time.
Yes you can apply makeup whilst suffering from acne and whilst taking treatment. However, greasy makeup may be contributing to inflaming your skin and worsening your acne. Therefore, it is a good idea to avoid greasy makeup whilst you have acne.
Yes. You can get this from your doctor or online at DrEd.
The tablets are yellow, circular and biconvex.
You can still take oral contraceptives whilst on this treatment. However, the treatment may make oral contraceptives less effective. During the time of treatment and for at least 7 days after you stop treatment, you should take extra precautions. These may include using a condom and extra spermicide.
Most importantly, you need to take Oxytetracycline as your doctor advises. You should take tablets one hour before or two hours after a meal. You need to swallow the tablet whole with a full glass of water. You should not take the tablets just before you go to bed.
If you are an adult or child over 12: Take 1-2 tablets (250mg-500mg) daily for 3 days. Your doctor will decide the dosage which is best for you. Children under 12 should not take Oxytetracycline as it can cause tooth discolouration and can affect bone development.
If you overdose, seek medical assistance immediately.
If you forget to take a tablet, take it as soon as you remember. If this is near the time or your next due dosage, do not double dose, but skip the missed dose and continue as normal. You must not take the medicine with food or milk as it may make treatment less effective.
The active substance is oxytetracycline dehydrate (250mg or 500mg depending on the dosage of the tablet). The other ingredients in the tablet are magnesium stearate, maize starch, hydroxypropyl cellulose (E463), colloidal silica, sodium lauryl sulphate, propylene glycol, sunset yellow (E110), quinoline yellow (E104), titanium dioxide (E171), methylhydroxypropyl cellulose (E464) and purified talc (E553).
If you experience any of these side effects or any others, consult your doctor.
You must inform your doctor if you suffer myasthenia gravis (muscle weakness, difficulty chewing and swallowing and slurred speech) or if you have reduced kidney or liver function.
This is the first time I have used this service. Website was easy to navigate and online questions very clear. prompt response and delivery of malaria tablets.
I cannot believe how easy it was to order, pay and then receive the goods. They kept me informed throughout. I wish all companies were this easy to deal with
I have been prescribed the same medication for over 4 years, yet I still have the hassle of taking valued time off work to visit my GP/local pharmacy for repeat prescriptions. This tedious exercise costs me a half day's annual leave for little more than a blood pressure reading and ironically, I own my own electronic blood pressure meter! DrEd.com - inexpensive, well packaged and prompt delivery.
Placed order one day delivered the next in discrete packaging, treatment worked as directed. Would use again and reccomed
A very good service very helpful with all my needs i would tell all my friends if they needed help
