Can you take Ciprofloxacin and Doxycycline together?

Doing so is not advised unless you first seek the advice of your local doctor or pharmacist.

They will have access to your full medical history and case notes, and can therefore make a more informed and accurate decision.

Both drugs are similar antibiotics and therefore it seems likely that there would be little point in taking them together, anyway.
  • Ciprofloxacin is an antibiotic which is used to fight against the growth and effects of bacteria in the body. It's prescribed to patients to treat numerous different kinds of bacterial infections, and is generally considered to be a good all-round antibiotic.
  • Doxycycline is a slightly different form of antibiotic - a tetracycline. It is used to fight a whole host of different bacterial infections in the body, such as: UTIs (urinary tract infections), acne, gonorrhea, chlamydia, gum disease and plenty of others.
Both of these medications are antibiotics, and therefore it would be wise fo you to consult your doctor before taking them both at the same time.

There are no contraindications of ciproflaxicin and doxycycline, but there is no need to use these two antibiotics together.

No, this is not recommended. These are two different types of antibiotics and could possibly cause an unwanted drug reaction. Check with a medical professional before taking any type of drug you are unsure of.
