Talking Doxycycline

Hi All:
I was just wondering for anyone who is using Doxy is there like an initial breakout period when you first begin using it? I started on Doxy last week 2x's a day (nausea is a bad side effect for me by the way) and in the first several days I could see a nice change in my skin but then suddenly the last few days I am breaking out in places I never use to. Anyone experience this? Thanks.

Re: Doxycycline

I too am on doxy! only 100mg a day though.

Have you tried eating before taking it? That should help the sickness. I've never experienced any side effects from it, that could just be me though. Everyone reacts differently to medication...

I've been on Doxy about 2 months now and my skin is awesome. The best it has ever been. Even if i get a spot, its not a red and inflamed as before and it goes away quicker! yay!

I did get an innitial break out, around the second or third week. It cleared up in a few days... I still get occasional problems, but nothing as bad as it was!

I'm sure babygirl will have something to say in this thread!

Good luck!

Re: Doxycycline

I've done Doxy before and I can't remember if I had a initial breakout, but I can tell you, when you stop taking it your acne will come back much worse, well mine did. I do remember not leaving the house for 3 months while I tried to heal the disgusting mess that was my face. Good Luck!

It has worked for some though... and maybe if you didn't have an initial breakout at all, you and doxy just wasnt meant to be from the start...

What are you on now? Hows it going? All well i hope...
