Can you take two 50mg of doxycycline instead of one 100mg?

The dosage of doxycycline to treat chlamydia is 100mg twice a day for 7 days, but I only have 50mg capsules. I'm wondering if it's safe to take 4 50mg capsules instead of 2 100mg capsules.

Hell, Anon.

Thank you for your question.

This is something to ask your pharmacist about. You should never take more than the recommended dose.
