    Doxycycline EUI for Recipients (originally issued 03/28/2016; revised 08/18/2017)

    During an anthrax emergency, you will be given a medicine called doxycycline (DOX-i-SYE-kleen) because you may have breathed in anthrax germs. These germs can be deadly. Taking this medicine reduces your chance of getting sick and dying. Until officials know for sure who breathed in the germs, it is important to start taking this medicine as soon as possible after the emergency starts. Public health officials will provide information on who should get the medicine. If you have questions, talk to a doctor or healthcare provider about taking doxycycline.
