Hello. I'm Dr Chip
What other infection?

Customer: replied 8 days ago.
I have chlamydia, and was wondering if I mix both antibiotics, would this have an adverse effect
Customer: replied 8 days ago.
From reading online, there doesn’t seem to be any interaction and in some instances it may even help

Thanks

No--there are no adverse reactions or interactions between metronidazole and doxycycline so you can take them both together--it won't affect the action of either one

Please let me know if you need any more information

Customer: replied 8 days ago.
Thank you and you believe the chlamydia should clear as normal?

Absolutely
