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 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
