Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

^

Q: Can Doxy-1 L-Dr Forte capsule be used in children?

A: No, this medicine should not be used by children under 8-years of age and should be used with precaution in children between 8-12 years because this medicine can cause a permanent change in the colour of teeth. Hence, it should be avoided in children.

Q: Can I have milk with Doxy-1 L-Dr Forte capsule?

A: No, the Doxy-1 L-Dr Forte capsule should not be taken with milk or dairy products. This medicine belongs to a class of tetracyclines and calcium in the milk can reduce its absorption. Thus, it should not be taken with milk. You should take this medicine with plenty of water or with meals.

Q: How does the lactobacillus help?

A: Antibiotics can kill or stop the growth of good bacteria within the gut. So, oral antibiotics affect the growth of these gut-friendly bacteria, which can cause issues with the digestive system like diarrhoea, indigestion, etc. The Lactobacillus present in this medicine helps in reducing antibiotic-associated diarrhoea and helps in improving the digestion process.

A: No, these tablets should only be consumed for the duration advised by your doctor. If you use it for more or less duration than prescribed, there are chances that the next dose of this medicine won’t be effective due to bacteria's development of resistance.

Q: Does Doxy 1 ldr forte cause diarrhea?

A: No, it is very unlikely to cause diarrhoea. It contains lactic acid bacillus, which is a friendly bacteria that restores the balance of good bacteria in the digestive system, which may have gotten upset due to infections or the use of antibiotics.
