    My doctor prescribed this for my moderate acne. I knew as a pharmacy tech that this would make me nauseous, but that is not my complaint.

My throat hurt when I would swallow/eat. I could only eat enough to keep from being hungry. It was awful! I wasn't allergic to Adoxa Oral, just the generic for it ... Show Full Comment
