WATER SOLUBLE POWDER
Per gram powder: 500 mg doxycycline hyclate.
Spectrum of activity:
Doxycycline is a tetracycline derivative, with bacteriostatic action against a largenumber of Grampositive and Gramnegative bacteria (like Staphylococci spp., Haemophilus influenza, E. coli, Corynebacteria, Bacillus anthracis, some Clostridia spp., Actinomyces spp., Brucella spp., Enterobacter spp., Salmonella spp., Shigella spp. and Yersinia spp.. It acts also against Mycoplasma spp., Rickettsiae and Chlamydia spp.. Absorption after oral administration of doxycycline will be good and therapeutic levels will be attained quickly and resisted for a longer period, due to a relative long-serum half-life time. Doxycycline has a great affinity to lung-tissues, therefore it is recommended especially for respiratory tract infections.
Infections caused by micro-organisms susceptible to doxycycline, especially infections of the respiratory tract in calves, pigs and poultry (broilers).
Hypersensitivity to tetracyclines, serious renal- and/or liver dysfunctions, simultaneous administration with penicillins and/or cephalosporines.
Sometimes hypersensitivity reactions may occur and long-term treatment may result in gastro-intestinal disturbances and changes of gut flora.
