What is Oxytetracycline?

Available in a hard capsule form that can be used to effectively treat a number of conditions, this medicine is primarily used to significantly ease acne (acne vulgaris) and rosacea (chronic inflammatory disorder) outbreaks to leave clearer looking skin. Under the category of tetracycline antibiotic, or an antibacterial medication, Oxytetracycline has been proven to help decrease the inflammation caused by acne, and lessen the amount of breakouts.

How does Oxytetracycline work?

This acne treatment contains the active ingredient oxytetracycline dihydrate. This ingredient targets bacteria known as propionibacterium acnes, which is associated with acne infections.

Oxytetracycline dihydrate works by limiting this bacteria's ability to multiply. When the infection is immobilised in this way, the immune system is able to fight off the remaining bacteria. This effectively treats the infection, reducing the inflammation of the sebaceous glands so the skin can heal resulting in less breakouts and clearer skin.

What are the benefits of Oxytetracycline?

In addition to its ability to successfully treat acne, this medication also has the benefit of being very easy to take, as it comes in the form of tablets. Rather than having to apply a cream or gel directly to the acne, sometimes more than once per day, you only need to swallow two Oxytetracycline tablets twice daily.

It is also clinically effective meaning that the majority of patients notice a considerable difference to their skin, rather than over-the-counter methods that can sometimes just mask the issue.

Another advantage is this medication is suitable for both men and women and has a lower risk of side effects in comparison to other acne treatments like roaccutane.

How do I take Oxytetracycline?

All HealthExpress medication comes complete with a patient leaflet that should be read before use. This will include how to take Oxytetracycline tablets, however it is really simple.

For acne treatment, this medicine is usually taken as follows:

  • One 250mg tablet should be taken twice daily
  • The tablets should be swallowed whole, preferably with a glass of water, either one hour prior to a meal or two hours afterwards
  • It is not advisable to take the tablets immediately before bedtime
  • It is recommended that you do not take the tablets with milk or food of any kind, as doing so is believed to make the medication less effective

By taking the medication on an empty stomach, this treatment will be the most effective.

What dosages are available for Oxytetracycline?

At HealthExpress, we offer tablets in a 250mg only. This is the recommended dosage that offers optimum effectiveness with a very small chance of side effects. When used to treat acne, tablets are taken twice a day, however this dosage may change if prescribed for another condition.

What are the side effects of Oxytetracycline?

This medicine is a very well tolerated medication that can help clear up and reduce the symptoms of a number of infections, including effectively preventing acne outbreaks and rosacea.

A small percentage of people find they experience side effects when taking oxytetracycline, these include:

  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Diarrhoea
  • Loss or change in appetite
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Swollen tongue
  • Rash or itching
  • Increased sensitivity to light

You may experience side effects when starting a new medication, but if any persist beyond three months, contact your doctor to discuss. If these symptoms become severe, or you think you're experiencing an allergic reaction, you must stop taking the medication straight away and contact a medical professional immediately.

What precautions/interactions should I be aware of when using Oxytetracycline?

This medication is clinically proven to be safe and effective for most people, but it is not intended for use by everyone. This treatment may not be suitable for

  • Anyone who is allergic to tetracycline antibiotics
  • Anyone who has experienced long-term kidney or liver problems
  • Pregnant or breastfeeding women;
  • Those taking specific medications including retinoids, penicillin, anticoagulants or diuretics
  • Patients taking Vitamin A supplements
  • People with galactose intolerance

It is suggested also not to drink grapefruit or milk when using this treatment as it could adversely affect its absorption and increase the risk of side effects.
