    I find it kind of odd that your doctor would prescribe 100mg of doxy 1 or 2xs a day as a substitute for Oracea which is 40mg. You could split the tablet and take half and see how that works for you....

    I haven't experienced any side affects at all.

    There's lots of info available on Oracea and doxycycline, but check with your Dr. to see if it's right for you.

    The side effects are mostly stomach problems like irritation, upset, diarrhia etc. I also remember my Dr. asking me if I ever had any muscle aches. Most side effects are mild, but you'll find the...

    Everyones' tolerance for meds is different, but I've been taking some form of doxy [Oracea/generic] for almost 3 years. Had I stopped at 9 months, I can't even imagine what I would look like now. I'm...

    Hi solutionquest,
    I took Oracea for over a year, and now take 50mg doxy. I do just as well with that and have stayed pretty clear now for some time.

    Between the Oracea and now currently generic...

    I knew all about card at the time, the problem was it wasn't on the list of approved meds for my insurance to pay for it. This was back not long after it was first introduced, and I tried generic...

    Hi DukeCity,
    Sorry to hear that doxy wasn't working out, but glad that you're back on the Oracea.
    I on the other hand, continue to do well on just 50mg of doxy. I never have a breakout like I used...

    The "bite" you may be getting could be from the vinegar in the dressing. I find most bottled dressings are heavy on the vinegar and seasonings. Add a bit of extra oil or even water.

    I tried a couple of those gradual tanners a few years ago. They were so irritating, probably because they are full of chemicals- so I never tried again.

    Everyone is different as to how much sun is too much especially when on doxy. I can tolerate sun pretty well as long as I start out gradually and of course wear sunscreen. And know when you've had...

    It's called Latisse. It stimulates the follicles to make your lashes longer and thicker. It's actually a side affect of a glaucoma drug. Very expensive at about $120 a month - and it's not likely to...

    I was warned at the health food shop the burning sensation is common for the drops. I always took capsules so I didn't have to deal with that.

    In my opinion theres a bit too much going on here. Have you had any blood tests for allergies, and toxins due to molds etc? The metal taste in your mouth is certainly an odd symptom too.

    I checked out some reviews on makeupalley and some reported burning after using it too. One woman with rosacea said it took weeks to undo the damage. So no facial for me!
