Patient : Why can I not lie down for 30 minutes after taking tetracycline? What will happen if I do?
I take tetracycline for acne. In order to take it on an empty stomach and without lying down I will have to disturb my sleep cycle. I have just started taking the drug and take 2 capsules twice daily. Would it really be that bad to sleep after taking it?
