On May 18, I was prescribed Epiduo as well as Doryx 150mg, both once daily. What drove me to the dermatologist was the desire to get off birth control. On Sunday May 22, I finished my birth control and decided that I was just gonna stop taking it.
So far I've seen a slight decrease in the size of my pores along the nose. My skin is really dry and somewhat blotchy. The dryness is enough that my PCA Skin SPF 15 moisturizer is able to hide it. I have some burning when I apply it at night but it doesn't last too long. I haven't had any initial breakouts yet, or new pimples.
I haven't seen any side effects from the Doryx yet.
