Product selection: Doxy Hyc Vs Mono

Patient

Q: For introduction I'm a pharmacist. I often switch doxy hyclate for monohydrate to save customers money with no complaints. However, I have a general question about doxy monohydrate vs hyclate for prescribers. If you have treated with both salts and have had a clinical response under the same indication please list the indication and results (simply improved or did not is sufficient I don't want to wast your time). For those people who did not benefit from one salt but did the other please write the degree of benefit ( I would like details for this please, perspective is great). Clinically I cannot find a relevant difference between the two salts. Without researching each company who makes the salts I believe the two salts are on the market because it's a way to patent, make a solid form of doxy for caps and tablets. For example doxy Calcium [Vibrammycin] is a suspension while powders for injection exists they have to be reconstituted and of course financial gain: Cheaper to make, easy to assessable and collect and or purchase materials for production etc. In order to provide too the general public such medicines. Of course every business has capital in mind.....Please let me know if you have a significant finding. Thank you!
