Oxytetracycline is a prescription-only antibiotic medication used to treat acne. It works by reducing the production of acne causing bacteria, resulting in reduced acne symptoms such as inflammation, blackheads and whiteheads.

Oxytetracycline acne tablets, when used short-term with Epiduo gel or Differin cream/gel  under a doctor's supervision, can potentially be more effective in clearing moderate to severe acne, especially when pimples are inflamed or infected.

How long does Oxytetracycline take to work?

The usual Oxytetracycline course for acne is 12 weeks, but complete clearance may take 4 to 6 months. Your doctor might suggest a 3-month course with a topical cream.

Severe cases may require extended treatment of 2 years or more. Follow your doctor's advice for the full prescribed course based on the severity and individual response.

what is Oxytetracycline used for?

Oxytetracycline is a potent antibiotic effective against a broad spectrum of bacterial infections, including respiratory, urinary tract, sexually transmitted, skin, eye, and rickettsial infections.

It is also used for various other infections. Primarily prescribed for acne and rosacea, it inhibits bacterial growth and spread. It belongs to the tetracycline antibiotics group.

It is crucial to use Oxytetracycline as prescribed by a healthcare professional and complete the entire course of treatment.

For comprehensive information, refer to the Patient Information Leaflet (PIL).

How does Oxytetracycline combat acne?

Oxytetracycline treats acne by targeting the bacteria causing the infection. When you take Oxytetracycline tablets orally, it gets into your bloodstream and reaches the skin's oil-producing glands.

These glands can lead to acne when the produced oil becomes trapped in hair follicles.

It works by stopping bacteria from making proteins needed for their growth and multiplication.

As a result, the number of bacteria on the skin decreases, leading to less inflammation and preventing new acne lesions from forming.

Why is Tetracycline one of the best antibiotics?

Tetracycline is a powerful antibiotic because it fights different bacteria effectively by stopping their protein production.

It works well in the body, treating various infections. It's a top choice for doctors because it's safe, easy to tolerate, and comes in both pill and IV forms for convenience.

This makes tetracycline a dependable option for treating different infections.

Can you take Oxytetracycline 250 mg tablets during pregnancy and breast-feeding?

No, you should not take Oxytetracycline 250 mg tablets during pregnancy or while breastfeeding. It's crucial to consult with your doctor or pharmacist for advice before taking any medication in such situations, as oxytetracycline may pose a risk of harm to the baby.

Always prioritize the guidance of healthcare professionals when considering medications during pregnancy or while breastfeeding.

How to store Oxytetracycline?
  • Keep out of the reach and sight of children.
  • Store in a cool, dry place (below 25ᵒC), away from direct heat and light.

  • Does oxytetracycline treat malaria?

    Oxytetracycline, like other tetracycline antibiotics, has some activity against certain strains of the malaria-causing parasite Plasmodium (tiny organisms that cause a serious illness transmitted through mosquito bites).

    Therefore, it can be used for prophylaxis (preventive treatment) in areas where these specific strains are susceptible to the antibiotic.

    However, it's important to note that the use of oxytetracycline for malaria prophylaxis is not as common as other antimalarial medications, and recommendations for malaria prevention can vary based on the specific geographic location and the prevalent strains of Plasmodium.

  • Does oxytetracycline treat chalamydia?

    Oxytetracycline is generally not considered a first-line treatment for Chlamydia trachomatis infections. Instead, the recommended antibiotics for treating Chlamydia trachomatis include azithromycin or doxycycline.

    Oxytetracycline, like other tetracycline antibiotics, may have some activity against Chlamydia, but it is not typically the preferred choice due to factors such as dosage regimen, effectiveness, and potential side effects.
