Tetracycline FAQs

How does Tetracycline work?

Tetracycline fights bacteria by disrupting its growth. It is a short-acting passive antibiotic that diffuses through pores in the bacterial membrane. Once inside, it inhibits protein synthesis making reproduction impossible for the bacteria.

What is the typical dosage of Tetracycline dosage?

Follow Tetracycline dosage instructions as directed by your doctor.

Tetracycline works best on an empty stomach; therefore, it should be taken 1 to 2 hours before or after any meal. The drug comes in the form of an oral pill, and should be taken with a full glass of water. Based on varying physical factors, a typical dose of tetracycline varies between 250 mg tablets to be taken once every 6 hours, or 500 mg tablets taken every 12 hours.

For treatment of moderate to severe acne, your doctor may prescribe 1000 mg taken once daily.

As with all prescription drugs, it is necessary to follow your doctor’s specific treatment instructions as each plan will vary on an individual basis.
