Periostat Information:

Buy Periostat

Periostat (Doxycycline) is used in patients with gum disease (periodontitis) after a certain dental procedure (scaling and root planing). Periostat helps to improve tooth attachment and reduce gum pockets. Periostat belongs to a class of antibiotics known as tetracyclines. At this low dosage, this medication does not treat bacterial infections, but may help to prevent the breakdown of gum tissue.

Periostat Side Effects:

Common side effects of Periostat may include upset stomach, diarrhea, nausea, or vomiting.

Contact your doctor immediately if you notice more serious side effects such as:
• Painful or difficult swallowing;
• Signs of clostridium difficile-associated diarrhea (persistent diarrhea, abdominal or stomach pain/cramping, blood or mucus in your stool);
• Signs of kidney problems (decreased urination, fluid retention, swelling in your legs, ankles, or feet, drowsiness, shortness of breath, fatigue, nausea);
• Signs of liver or pancreas problems (loss of appetite, upper stomach pain, tiredness, nausea or vomiting, fast heart rate, dark urine, jaundice);
• Signs of low white blood cell counts (fever, chills, swollen glands, body aches, weakness, pale skin, easy bruising or bleeding);
• White patches in your mouth, changes in vaginal discharge

Periostat may rarely cause a serious increase in pressure inside the skull (intracranial hypertension). The risk of this side effect is greater for women of childbearing age who are overweight or who have had intracranial hypertension in the past. If intracranial hypertension develops, it usually goes away after Periostat is stopped. However, there is a chance of permanent vision loss or blindness. Seek emergency medical attention if you have persistent or severe headaches, vision changes (such as blurred vision or double vision, decreased vision, sudden blindness), or persistent nausea or vomiting.
