Therapeutic Group: Anti Bacterial
Presentation
Ipadox

Food does not interfere with the absorption of doxycycline, 90% of the drug in circulation is bound to plasma protein. Biological half-life varies between 16- 23 hours on repeated doses. Due to its higher lipid solubility than any other tetracycline ,doxycycline attains a wide distribution in body tissues and body fluids.
