My 14 year old son starting taking Doryx for his severe acne. He has been taking it for almost 3 months with great results. Absolutely no side effects. It did take about 5 weeks for all of the acne to be gone. He is using it with epiduo and washing his face in Accent face wash and lotion. I'm not sure how long he will be on Doryx. He goes back to Dr soon. I'm praying once he stops using th ... Show Full Comment

Please DO NOT take this medication.

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.

Comment:
I was prescribed this medication for acne. I have struggled with acne my entire life. My new dermatologist wasted no time putting me on this and Epiduo, the latter because I had been before. I found it strange that I had to have a coupon to cover part of the expense--clearly the dr. knew that insurance companies don't like covering either of these name brand drugs. It was a hassle to get these ... Show Full Comment

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!
