    I am a 27 yr old female and i started getting acne in my 20s. I went to see a dermatogolist who concluded it was hormornal. At this point i had tried every acne cream from everywhere. So my doc prescribed Adoxa, Retin-A and Benzalin. My acne cleared up within a month. Adoxa was the miracle worker because after i stopped taking it (I take it a month at a time), I stay clear for a few months and the ... Show Full Comment

    After developing a resistance to another anti-biotic, my doctor put me on Adoxa. I saw a difference almost immediately. My acne took about a month to clear up completely, but each day it got less noticeable and definitely less painful. Although the instructions say don't take it with food, I would ask your doctor's advice. Mine told me to always take it with food. One morning, I was in a r ... Show Full Comment

    I've been on this medication (150 mg/day) for one month. I had some severe acne above my lip for a few months and nothing was taking care of it. Went to the derm, got this and Ziana, and in conjunction they worked amazingly. My face is absolutely clear, not a single blemish or zit. I haven't decided if I want to get it refilled because it is supposedly very hard on your stomach, and I take ... Show Full Comment

    This medicine makes me sick, especially in the summer when it's hard to avoid the sun. I cannot take it without food. I have mild diarrhea and vomit when I do. There are very few foods you can eat with Adoxa. You're not supposed to take it within 2 hours of eating magnesium, calcium, iron, zinc, aluminum, or antacids. If I were a doctor, I would not prescribe any drug with Doxycycline for ... Show Full Comment
