|Pregnancy and Breastfeeding||
If you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant or are breastfeeding ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice before taking any medicine as Doxycycline could harm the baby
You must tell your doctor if you are taking, have recently taken or might take other medicines, in particular:
All medication can cause side effects. We have only listed a few to be aware of. Details of all side effects, including rare side effects to be aware of, are listed in the patient information leaflet (PIL). When completing your medical questionnaire, it is very important that you answer the questions truthfully. This is to ensure your doctor has a full picture of your medical history before prescribing. List all medicines you are already taking, including non-prescription and herbal medicines.
The right anti-malarial you require will depend on where you are travelling to. Anytime Doctor also provides Malarone (atovaquone and proguanil). Other anti-malarial medicines include chloroquine (also known as Avloclor tablets or Nivaquine syrup) and proguanil (also known as Paludrine). The major disadvantage of these two medicines is that many strains of malaria are now resistant, so the drugs are no longer effective. We therefore do not offer chloroquine and proguanil alone. We also do not offer Lariam (mefloquine).
|Looking after your medicine||

Medicines are only intended to be used by the person they are prescribed for. Do not give your prescribed medicine to anybody else, even if they have the same symptoms as you. Medicines can be harmful if used by anybody other than the person they have been prescribed for.
