What is Doxycycline as a malaria prophylaxis
Doxycycline is actually a synthetically derived tetracycline. Tetracyclines are a family of very wide-ranging antibiotics that are enriched with protozoa, including the malaria parasite plasmodium. This basically means that the drug is very useful in the treatment of the liver stage plasmodium (in combination with some other medicines), which also makes it very effective in preventing malaria
. In addition, it is also very effective in areas with multidrug-resistant falciparum malaria. In addition, the drug has the ability to be absorbed very quickly when taken orally. After ingestion, doxycycline is detectable in the blood within 15-30 minutes. The ability to absorb quickly makes it all the more effective.
Duration and dosage of Doxycycline
Doxycycline is available in many different dosages and concentrations, but 100 mg capsules or tablets are most commonly prescribed for malaria treatment or prophylaxis.
The usual adult dosage for malaria prophylaxis is 100 mg, once daily. Therapy should be started one-two days prior to travel, then during a stay in a malarial region, and continued for four full weeks after completion of the visit.
The dosage for adults as treatment is 100 mg twice daily for one week (seven days); it must be taken with schizontozide, a fast-acting remedy. The treatment of Plasmodium vivax or ovals also requires primaquine.
The drug can be used to treat children over the age of eight years.
As a prophylaxis, the usual dose for children is 2.2 mg / kg (up to a dose of 100 mg). Therapy should begin one-two days prior to travel to a malarial area, and should be continued during the visit and four weeks after the visit.
The usual dosage for treating children with malaria is 2.2 mg / kg (up to a dose of 100 mg) twice daily for seven days. It should be used with a fast-acting schizontozide.
Clinical studies have shown that the effect of malaria prophylaxis is between 92% and 96% for falciparum infections and 98% for primary vivax infections.
When used correctly in combination with a fast-acting schizontoxide, the effectiveness of the doxycycline treatment is 96-100%.
It is also among the most widely used drugs, as there are no limits to its use in the prevention of malaria. There is no sign of impairment if the drug has been used for an extended period of time. The general experience with doxycycline is very positive.
