    Tetracycline 500 mg twice daily?

    Hey. My dermatologist put me on tetracycline 500 mg twice daily and he gave me Vanoxide HC cream. Isn't 500 mg a lot for the tetracycline though? I was on doxy before and it was only 100 mg.

    No, the tetracycline isn't a high dose; it's the standard dose. You can't compare the strengths of one drug to the strenghs of another drug. It's like comparing apples and oranges. While 100mg is the standard strength for doxycycline, that's way too low of a dose for tetracycline.
