    Default doxycycline

    I was recently given doxy for my ocular rosacea symptoms (dry, red eyes and inflammation around and under the eyes). I am taking 100 mgs once a day, and have been taking it for 5 days so far. How long can it take an antibiotic to work on ocular symptoms? 4-8 weeks? Thanks.

    Hi Lauren,

    100mg day is a good dose, you should see subtle improvement in a few weeks and more noticeable improvement after a month/two.

    Default Doxycycline 100mg

    Hi,

    I agree with Yvette on the 100mg being a good dose. I have been taking 100mg for a few months now, and have noticed a huge difference in my overall skin appearance.

    I would give it a few months before you make any decisions on how well the medication is working.

    All the best.

    I took 100mg/day doxy for over a year with no noticeable side effects besides sun sensitivity (which having rosacea and ocular you have anyways). So that should alleviate any concerns you have about duration. Ultimately though, it's up to your physician. On a side note, while doxy did help, I have experienced much better results on Oracea.
