I have been taking this medication for years now and it has had little affect on my acne. When I started taking it, I did notice a significant impact on the dryness of my skin. This in turn, did reduce my acne symptoms. I am somewhat satisfied with the results, but over time, it seems as though the effects have worn out.

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.
