Oxytetracycline is an oral, anti-inflammatory antibiotic used in the process of treating acne, rosacea and other bacterial infections.

People also ask

What is Oxytetracycline?

Oxytetracycline dihydrate, an active ingredient that targets bacteria known as propionibacterium acnes, is associated with acne infections.

How does it work?

This ingredient works through limiting the bacteria's ability to multiply, which immobilises the infection and allows the immune system to fight off the bacteria that is left behind. Allowing the immune system to fight off the bacteria helps to treat the infections effectively and helps in the reduction of inflamed sebaceous glands, letting the skin heal and causing less breakouts and much clearer skin. 

What are the benefits of taking it?

As well as being an effective aid in treating acne, the medicine being in a tablet form makes it much easier to take as opposed to a topical cream, gel or ointment. Clinically, it is extremely favoured amongst a majority of patients who are able to notice a substantial difference with their skin when using Oxytetracycline tablets instead of over the counter medicines.

Oxytetracycline is also praised for its very few side affects for both men and women in comparison to other prescription acne treatments.

How do I use it and its dosage?

The tablets are for oral administration and are best taken on an empty stomach (1 hour before food or two hours after). If gastric irritation occurs, tablets should be taken with food. Tablets should be taken well before going to bed. Therapy should be continued for up to three days after symptoms have subsided.

The tablets must not be given to children below the age of 12.

Acne treatment instructions:

  • One 250mg tablet should be taken twice daily
  • The tablets should be swallowed whole, preferably with a glass of water, either one hour prior to a meal or two hours afterwards
  • It is not advisable to take the tablets immediately before bedtime
  • It is recommended that you do not take the tablets with anything other than water, as doing so is believed to reduce the effectiveness of the medication. 

Please always refer to the patient information leaflet on the inside of the box for further guidance. 

Side effects & precautions

Frequency not known: Gastrointestinal discomfort, toxic epidermal necrolysis

Please refer to the patient information leaflet to see further side effects.
