Anyone ever use GENERIC doxycycline?

I told my derm about how expensive adoxa was, and he prescribed me GENERIC adoxa, he said there is no difference. Is he right? He said it was just cheaper....there has to be a difference....why would it be cheaper?? Has anyone used the GENERIC kind

Yes, I use the generic kind. Doryx was working pretty well I THINK (not sure because I was also in the sun a lot and that calms down my bacne) and I didn't get any stomach problems at all. Then I asked to be switched to generic, and the only difference at first seemed to be a bad stomach ache every time I took it for about 30 minutes. (It doesn't have the special coating that the brand name has.) But now 2 months later it's starting to look worse. Either it's a coincidence and it would've happened with Doryx too, or it doesn't work as well. I might just quit cold and hope for the best.
