Hi Doctor,

In case when a male factor is involved and the OSA showed abnormality, is doxycycline prescribed? If yes, how much?

Thank you

either antioxidants or antibiotics can lower OSA. we generally use 100mg twice daiy for 2 weeks. I do not know your case so you must follow the advice of your doctor.

His dr. actually prescribed the same, but I wanted to hear your opinion. Also, he told him in case we would not find doxy in place where we live, to look for Cipro. We found both. In your opinion, which antibiotic is better?

Thank you
