    I used to get the kind of acne that starts out under the skin and hurts a few days before you can even see it. Then when you can see it, it still takes about a week to fully get rid off and you're left with a scar even though you didn't pop it. My dermatologist prescribed this and I'll admit, I was skeptical. He said it would get worse before it got better. The day I saw him I had 2 or ... Show Full Comment

    Prescribed 100 mg of doryx to take once a day along with numerous creams and gels (tazorac, duac, differin, clindamycin)to treat cystic vulgaris acne. Medical plan did not cover name brand. Therefore, was given the generic and took as prescribed. Results were satisfactory, even though taken with above. Maybe results were not positive because the generic brand is not as good as the name brand?

    i started using this medication in february when i couldnt stand anymore the large red painfull pimples in my face mostly around my cheeks. What i didn't like the most was that the pimples would be beside each other that they would combine by 2 or 3. after a week of using it, it cleared my skin.It did however irritate my skin whenever i would be in the sun for a while. since may i stopped usin ...

    I started taking Doryx about 3 months ago. My dermatologist started me out with a 2 weeks sample. Then I found a website....http://www.wcrx.com/products/doryx/ind ex.php, that offers a $50 rebate. I pay $60 for 90 day supply. So I really only had to pay $10. It works really well. I have seen a reduction in pimples and those I do get are very small and are gone within a day. I did get a yeast infec ... Show Full Comment
