This medicine treats cystic acne quickly and effectively. The only drawback is that it is very harsh on the stomach.

My son has only been on this medication for 3 weeks but has seen considerable improvement in the clearing up of his acne. He is on 150 mg, 1x daily and takes it approx. 1 hr after eating and has had no stomach issues.

My son takes this after he's eaten and has no stomach upset. It was slow to work at first maybe because he was taking it with food,but it eventually kicked in and his face is clear now.

My daughter was prescribed Adoxa and when we got to the pharmacy to pick it up, we found out that the cost for #60 pills was $500.32. I almost fainted!!! With no RX coverage, how can anyone afford this! It should be illegal for pharmaceutical companies to jack up the prices so much! I was told by the pharmacist that it is Doxycycline, which there are several brands and had to call and get replaced! Wonder what "kick-back" the doc gets for writing this one?? THis is a hug problem in the medical and insurance fraud problems that I wish someone would approach! Very disappointed!!

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 rush and only grabbed an apple. When I took it on such an empty stomach I got VERY sick and threw up twice. So clearly I know why he told me to take it with food. Bottomline--everyone is different so make sure to ask your doctor. Other than that, I think it's a great drug and I am SO happy that it worked for me.

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 enough pills as it is. Overall I had no severe side effects, maybe a headache but I get them often so I'm not certain if the Adoxa caused it or not.
