Questions about my new prescriptions

Hi I went to the dermatologist today and he prescribed me Monodox (Doxycycline) 100 mg, tazorac, and BP.

Anyway, here are my questions

1. I've been on 500 mg Tetracycline for 2 years (about 4 a day for one year and 2 a day for another). Is 100 mg once a day of Doxycycline will be enough or is it too week?

2. Is there any difference between brand name and generic Doxycycline? I have a coupon for Monodox but my pharmacy only carries generic. Is brand name better in any way?

3. Does anyone have any recommendations for me with this treatment plan?

Thank you for your help.

1. Doxycycline is in the Tetracycline group, so it should be just as effective if not more so.

2. I don't believe so. Same drug just at less the cost.

3. Make sure you take Doxycycline every day.
