About Oxytetracycline

How should I take Oxytetracycline?

Most importantly, you need to take Oxytetracycline as your doctor advises. You should take tablets one hour before or two hours after a meal. You need to swallow the tablet whole with a full glass of water. You should not take the tablets just before you go to bed.

If you are an adult or child over 12: Take 1-2 tablets (250mg-500mg) daily for 3 days. Your doctor will decide the dosage which is best for you. Children under 12 should not take Oxytetracycline as it can cause tooth discolouration and can affect bone development.

If you overdose, seek medical assistance immediately.

If you forget to take a tablet, take it as soon as you remember. If this is near the time or your next due dosage, do not double dose, but skip the missed dose and continue as normal. You must not take the medicine with food or milk as it may make treatment less effective.


The active substance is oxytetracycline dehydrate (250mg or 500mg depending on the dosage of the tablet). The other ingredients in the tablet are magnesium stearate, maize starch, hydroxypropyl cellulose (E463), colloidal silica, sodium lauryl sulphate, propylene glycol, sunset yellow (E110), quinoline yellow (E104), titanium dioxide (E171), methylhydroxypropyl cellulose (E464) and purified talc (E553).
