What is doxycycline?

Doxycycline (Doryx) is an antibiotic belonging to the class called "tetracyclines." Tetracyclines are one of the oldest antibiotics and have been around for more than 50 years. They were once used widely but with the availability of better and safer drugs, their popularity has declined. Tetracyclines are only used to treat bacterial infections. Tetracyclines are only available with a doctor's prescription.

One of the more common uses of Doxycycline is in the treatment of Acne Vulgaris. For controlling acne, the usual dose is one 50 mg capsule each day. The drug is taken as a pill. It needs to be taken for at least 2-4 weeks to show any benefit. Not all individuals respond to Doxycycline for the treatment of acne.
