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.

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.
