Is anyone using doxycycline as prophylaxis for syphilis and CT? I have one gentleman this may benefit, but haven't yet taken the step.

Hi all, I would really like to have a larger discussion on this subject!
I feel ill prepared -- and, I have had a few patients.. well, wait, that's a lie - one patient -- who is currently on TDF/FTC for HIV PrEP, well tolerated, asking about qD proph with doxycycline.
I'm in Philadelphia, and I have not yet connected with other HIV providers regarding the subject.
I desire to see/study/review the studies and evidence. After a short brief scour, I saw UK and AUS studies. Knowing it's alt tx for Treponema, and 1st line for tx of C.t., I would like to know it's efficacy through prophylaxis. Any links, advice, and comments would be super helpful!
