FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments: DORYX

User Comments:


For Acne “My 13yo took 120mg if Doryx EC for one month. During that time, I had to take her out of school twice for migraine headaches. The last headache was so bad that her arm went numb, and she temporarily lost her vision. Needless to say, I stopped giving her Doryx, since I feared intracranial hypertension. It helped her acne, but it’s not worth any risk of IH or blindness!”

For Acne “My dermatologist prescribed this to me for cystic acne. While it did clear up the acne I had horrible side effects. My hair was falling out more than usual, my gums were always swollen and puffy, and the worst of it was getting cdiff. Of course cdiff is a rare side effect and I ended up getting it, but I will never take this medication again.”

For Acne “I got prescribed Doryx, along with two topicals, Aczone in the morning and Ziana at night, when I was having moderate acne. I never have had extremely bad acne but I started to get multiple extremely painful pimples so I decided to get some treatment. The Doryx along with the two topicals work great, still get a few pimples here and there but much better than before. HOWEVER, with the coverage on my insurance this pill costs me $75 for a bottle of 30, 200mg tablets. It was $25 when I first started taking it about a year and a half ago and has just gone up in price ever since. Works great but is extremely expensive in my opinion.”

For Acne “I got this medicine in September and my face got bad then cleared up, but i kept going through a cycle: clear up, get better over and over. It’s mid December now and I haven’t cleared up in weeks. I also have back, shoulder, and chest acne. It did nothing to that. I’m going to switch antibiotics soon”
