Can You Take Doxycycline and Probiotics Together?

Doxycycline is an antibiotic used to treat bacterial infections including chest infections, skin infections, dental infections, malaria prevention, and sexually transmitted infections (among others). 

It is, in essence, an antibiotic designed to kill pathogenic bacteria that cause bacterial infection throughout the body. However, it can also have a negative impact on your gut health. The issue with antibiotics is that, while effective at killing pathogenic bacteria that cause infections to spread around the body, they also kill all of the good bacteria in your gut, which can have an impact on your gut health and your immune system.

Remember, 70% of your immune system lives in the gut – when the gut isn’t healthy, your immune system can’t do its job. That’s why an increasing number of people are choosing to take probiotics to help maintain their gut health and immune system health, particularly people who have a history of taking multiple doses of doxycycline - or other antibiotics.

Probiotics can help to manage gut microbiome destruction caused by these medicines, protecting your gut health and immune system. Wondering what exactly probiotics do to aid gut health and your immune system? In order to stay healthy, you need good bacteria in your gut - especially in your colon - to help break down nutrients that haven’t yet been digested.

Taking probiotics on a regular basis can help to improve and boost your digestive system and overall health. It’s perfectly fine to take probiotics after you’ve finished taking an antibiotic like Doxycycline to help rebalance the good bacteria in your gut. But can you take probiotics during a course of Doxycycline?

Below are some frequently asked questions relating to whether it’s safe to use probiotics alongside an antibiotic like Doxycycline.
