| | Doxycycline as treatment for Bronchial Chest Infection?
I am in a remote location in Africa and will not be able to access a health centre for at least 2 weeks. I have developed a severe chest (bronchial) infection (which I am prone to) and previously has been treated by Amoxycilin and a combination of inhalers, amongst others. I do not have access to any of these medications and the infection is very debilitating.
I do however have a prescription for 100mg Doxycycline per day, as an antimalarial.
Would it be possible to increase the dosage for a period, until I can access medical treatment? If so, how much and for how long? Any advice on how to relieve the infection so that I can make it to the health centre more easily would be very much appreciated.
Thanks - I appreciate the risks of self medication, but am desperate for a solution in this incidence as there is so little access to professional health care in my current location.
