    I have acne since in my teens. I am now in my mid 30s. I am currently taking doxycycline (100 mg cap) for one month and there is slight improvement to clearing my acne issue.

    Made me dizzy so I started to take it before going to slee. Did not know I shouldn't do that. Started to have problems with my esophagas. Burning - felt like a bubble that would not come out. Cold not eat for over a week. Could not get food down. very painful. No one could tell me what to do to make it better. I would thing someone should know. Never take it again

    I've used a LOT of things for acne, I havent been on this medication for long and have noticed a difference in the softness of my skin. For the first time I have clearer skin without having to cover it up with makeup.

    I have been using the medication for a week and have seen no results. Around my mouth area looks worse than ever. I eat a small snack before taking medication. Should I give the medication more time to work?? And, how long does the medication usually takes to work??
