    I have been using this for about 3-4 weeks and it works great!! Sometimes I forget to take it for a day or two and a couple little pimples pop up. It works really well even before my menstrual cycle, which is when I tend to break out. Overall I haven't had any complaints or side effects to Adoxa.

There is one MAJOR problem I have with it, but it will affect all of us differently, but for me as labeled in the side affects.. Upset stomach.. My stomach gets so UPSET. Hardcore! Even when I am off it, I will have random bouts of ... Show Full Comment

    My doctor gave me samples of this medication and it works beautifully! So when I went to fill the script at my pharmacy I was given the generic doxycycline for $10. It did not work so well. My acne came back and may have been even worse. I spoke to my doctor and he wrote me a script for "name brand only". The name brand would cost me $475 for a 30 day script and that's with my insura ... Show Full Comment

I had two weeks worth of samples, and I started seeing results right away! I am completely bummed that I can't pu ... Show Full Comment
