Can you take these drugs together at the same time of do they need to be spaced out?

An LLND gave me those two drugs and did not tell me to space them apart. You can check on interactions between drugs at drugs.com.

I took the rifampin on an empty stomach half hour before eating, and the doxy in the middle of a full meal.

Doxy sometimes causes sun sensitivity.

If that happens, mino is sometimes a good alternative.

Hi AS:

You should take then apart, just like Greta's post.

I would add:

1 - you need to avoid the sun or be covered to avoid the doxy chemical burn.

2 - you need to add a probiotic to the mix to replace the good bacteria being killed by the meds.

I took them the same time for months.

But to add to t9im's and Greta's comments...make sure you take the probiotics a couple hrs away from the antibiotics. Plus, taking rifampin with food lowers the levels of it in your blood by a third.
