Taking Doxycycline with food...

Recommended Posts

My dermatologist is kind of an idiot in general, she told me acne is caused by heat and humidity :rolleyes: I know acne can be exacerbated by it, but c'mon...

Anyway, she prescribed my doxycycline (doryx) and she told me to take it with dinner... but i read in the pamphlet that came with the meds to NOT take it less than an hour after eating something and to wait two hours before eating after taking it.

I've been taking it for a month now with no results, sometimes i take it on an empty stomach, sometimes i don't.

So which is right? My derm or the makers of doryx?

Take it an hour before you eat ...

That's what my dermatologist said to me

I'm on doxycycilne since 2 months and a half , but nothing seems to changed

*keep your self on it, maybe you'll get better

PEACE

is it generic doxycycline or the brand name (doryx)?

I'm on doryx and my doctor said to take it any time.. it is also time-released though so not exactly the same as generic doxycycline.

I've been on doxycycline for almost a year now.. i find that with or without food doesn't make a difference (i have to take mine at night so i take it b4 i go to bed, with no food).. Something i never knew though: i eat first then take my pills.. but my mom just had hip surgery & in the hospital when they gave her medicine, they had her eat first so the medicine isn't going into an empty stomach, preventing a stomach ache, i've been doing it wrong my whole life! lol. But, doxycycline doesn't hurt my stomach so i guess it doesn't matter.
