    Hi all,

    I have been put on augmentin duo forte tabs for two weeks for my broncheictasis and was advised to go off my Doxylin by my doctor. As I haven’t done this before, I am a bit nervous about doing this, any advice for me would be very helpful.

    Thanks…….Annie

    I noticed augmentin is very similar to amoxycillin in the US –its in the penicillin family –it doesnt really mix well with doxy or any other tetracycline –think you got got advice to go off doxy for a bit –

    Thank you Richie, was just a bit concerned about going off Doxylin for two weeks as I am doing so well with my RA at the moment and didn’t know if going off Doxylin would bring on a RA flare…………Annie

    Hi Annie
    The tetracycliness (doxy is one) are known to reduce the effect of the penicillins – which is why your doctor will have suggested you don’t take the doxy whilst on Augmentin Duo. Mainly noted in the treatment of pneumococcal meningitis and strep, they cannot be sure whether it will adversely interfere with treatment of other acute infections, so tend to err on the side of caution.

    Tetracyclines (bacteriostatic)
