    doxycycline--with or without food?

    Hi. Am I supposed to take Doxycycline with or without food? I thought I read that I could take it with food (not dairy), but my dermatologist said I have to take it on an empty stomach? Does anyone know?

    thanks for your quick reply. sometimes i think my dermatologist knows nothing about acne or the meds he gives me. He basically asks me what i want him to prescribe.

    You're supposed to take it with a glass of water on an empty stomach.

    Take it with food only if it upsets your stomach.
