As part of my dermatologist's approach to control my moderate acne, I was prescribed Doryx 200 mg to take. I was instructed to take one 200 mg tablet every day until the next follow up visit (which is in early December). I read in the PI sheet that I only had to take 100 mg after day 1, but then I called and they confirmed that it's 200 mg every day. My question is: has anyone else been on Doryx for longer than a couple of weeks? Is it safe to be on an antibiotic for this long?

Since all-OTC stuff hasn't worked, I now have prescriptions.


Wash: CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser in Morning; CeraVe Foaming Cleanser at Night


AM Moisturizer: CeraVe AM Lotion SPF 30


PM Moisturizer: CeraVe PM Lotion



Acanya gel

Epiduo gel

Doryx 200 mg

(maybe Tretin-X cream soon)

That`s fine. It starts to become worrisome if you`re on tetracycline antibiotics for longer than 1-2 years.
