Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

^

Q: Can Doxypal Dr L 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 Doxypal Dr L Capsule?

A: No, Doxypal Dr L 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 it on an empty stomach with plenty of water.

Q: How does the lactobacillus help?

A: Antibiotics can kill or stop the growth of bacteria. So, oral antibiotics affect the growth of these 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.
