I have had adult acne for years, I've been taking Doryx for 18 months now and have been acne free for 17 of those. I may get a pimple the week of my period, but nothing more than that. The first month it did give me diarrhea, but now there are zero side effects except for great skin! I call it a miracle drug. It has changed my life.

It was a hassle to get these ... Show Full Comment

It works really well and clears up acne fast. My skin looks and feels perfect. I've only had two problems - 1. getting off of it because my skin doesn't stay clear and 2. sunburns, I have a fair complexion so it's already easy for me to get sunburn, but this medicine seems to make it worse. I highly recommend doryx though!

Comment:
Although Doryx proved extremely effective at treating my acne, about 2 weeks after being on Doryx, I started to get extremely painful headaches. After having these headaches for 6 days straight (I did take Aspirin which helped) I stopped taking it. Sure enough, 2 days after not using Doryx my headaches stopped and haven't continued since. I would definitely still recommend this medication as i ... Show Full Comment
