Just a quick question. As many of us take Doxy once a day I was told recently that it must be taken exactly 24 hours each time. Honestly I wasn’t really paying attention to this. Usually taking it every morning but few hours delay was possible always. Taking it for 27 hours and so on. Is it really a big deal, should I pay attention to this more precisely?

Thank you.

Versessv if that is a fact, I am doing it wrong. I take it in the morning and late afternoon, whenever I get around to it. It is not precise for me and it won't be. I am not that organized or punctual. My personality is I get it done but it won't be perfect.

Lived with MS since 1991. Completed 16 months of full CAP plus supplements. Currently in full remission. Not on any antiobiotics anymore but taking all supplements incl NAC.

I appear to be having positive results with CAP and do not follow a strict timetable either. I take my ABX with supper, all at once. I divide the NAC dose only. I take Vitamin C immediately upon rising then have my supplements with breakfast. This way I keep my calcium and magnesium, etc. away from my ABX. My mealtimes fluctuate by hours.

Viktor, I also dont follow a proper schedule when it comes to dosing time and Ive wondered about that as well ( especially recently ) because ive been somewhat inconsistent. I would think that because cpn is slow growing it wouldnt matter all that much, however, I might be totally wrong, and it might actually be very important to take the pills on time. Hopefully someone can answer for us.

Viktor - I don't think 3 hours one way or the other should make a difference especially as I believe you are on other agents. 

While not the most convenient - the smartest way for consistency of drug to bug and for least development of resistance is to take Doxy BID (twice a day). 

Several here have taken 200mg once daily instead of 100mg BID but if you study the drugs PK/PD - BID is technically more viable dosing of doxycycline.

I've taken mine all at one time for 33 months now. Sometimes, I delay by as much as twelve hours, since life just gets in the way a lot. I'm still a major abx success story!

Twickle Purple (Just ordered lavender plants yesterday, by the way) - It's funny to be considered an 'old timer'. Three years has gone by in a blur and yet I look to Sarah, Rica, Jim, Marie and LifeontheIce as the serious old-timers here (with their five years or so of experience). Thinking about it, there are a whole slew of us who started in mid to late 2005, as Sarah and David were getting the word out. We're kind of the second generation, as that first group really struck out on their own and went on rudimentary science, faith and good instincts. We are all so very lucky.

MacKintosh, you keep the message alive and out there which benefits us all no small amount! I am very thankful that. :o)

I hope you enjoy the lavendar – it's a real feast for the senses! I have hundreds of plants surrounding my house and my yard comes alive because of it. I love the humming sound of the countless drunken bees, the sight of the flittering little skippers and floating monarch butterflies, and the amazing scent of lavendar on the warm summer breeze. In the late summer different species of little birds forage about (it can be comical to watch) emptying all the little seed heads. I find that English Lavendar is one of the most rewarding and delightful plants.

Yeah, thanks for this. I was wondering about this too and you are right, i got to the same conclusion that it is better to take it twice a day maybe to keep the consistent level all the time.

Seems like we all are relaxed about when we take the abx and suppliments, just that we take them. I am happy to know I am not the only one that allows everyday life to litter the trail of treatment. Yes the CAP is a priority but not at the exclusion of real life.

Todybear, I agree with you, life must come first closely followed by the CAP.

Viktor,

I think if you want to reap the benefits of the anti-inflammatory effect of the doxy you would want to dose it every 12 hrs or at least no more than 24 hrs apart but I don't think you would lose any of the other good effects CAP provides if you don't.  

I take my mino once in the morning and once in the evening but not exactly 12 hrs apart.  Then on Zith days, I take that with my evening dose of mino.
