Doxycyline 100mg vs. 200mg

Recommended Posts

I have been on 100 mg of doxycyline for a little over a month now with some other topical medication. My acne has cleared up a little, and my doctor appointment is tommorow to see my progress. My doctor is very open minded and I am thinking about asking him to let me try 200 mg of doxycyline for a month to see if it clears me up any more. I would like to know if 200 mg would improve my situation or if there is any other oral acne medication.

Thanks

When I took Doxy, my derm started me on 100 mg TWICE a day. I *think* the dose depends on your weight (I weigh about 125 pounds), but I could be wrong.
