Possible Interaction: Ethanol and Doxycycline



Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

Only minocycline and tigecycline significantly reduced EtOH drinking, and doxycycline showed a strong effect size trend toward reduced drinking.
We, and others, have shown that the tetracycline drugs, minocycline and doxycycline , reduced ethanol (EtOH) drinking in mice.

Doxycyline also increased sensitivity to the motor-impairing effects of alcohol (2 g/kg), and the duration of loss of righting reflex after ethanol injection (3.5 g/kg), without causing a significant alteration in blood alcohol levels.
Using repeated sessions of the drinking-in-the-dark paradigm, we found that doxycycline consistently reduced consumption of 20% alcohol during two- and four-hour access.
