    After one year of Oracia and Metrogel neither does anything for the condition. In fact it was originaly on the nose and forehead and now has spread to both sides of my face. on occasion rarely, it lessened for 2-3 days and just returns worse than before, I have never missed a dose, if I didn't have insurance I wouldn't pay for something that doesn't work!

    It was promoted to me by an eager Dermatologist as a "wonder cure" for my increasingly problematic Rosacea. For the first three days, I felt pretty bad after taking this drug but eventually got used to it. I would estimate a 10% difference in the redness and overall flare ups from this horrible disease.
