thanks for using health care magic.

Doxicycline is an antibiotics and it could be used to treat
urinary tract infections. However, prescription of antibiotics
is restricted unless there is evidence of an infection.

Urinary tract infections commonly present with:
-painful urination,
-frequent urination and in small quantities
-lower abdominal pains
-some times pus or blood in urine
-fever, nausea and vomiting in some cases etc.

If he is resenting with these symptoms, it would
be likely he is suffering from a urinary tract infec-
tion in which case you could start the doxicycline
and then adapt when the antibiogram following
culture results comes out.

Urinary tract infections are favored by being bed
ridden especially when there is a urinary catheter.

Hope this helps.
Best regards.
