Has anyone tried Oracea for Acne?
Asked by Maybell Demopoulos 6 months ago.
Oracea is a medication intended for rosacea -- not for acne. It will not help much (if any) for "traditional" acne. It is a low-strength form of doxycycline, which has had the antibiotic component removed but the anti-inflammatory component increased. You should be receiving a different treatment for acne.

Taking Oracea, anyone seen any results?
Update: I've started my own blog about Rosacea and included Oracea as a topic. Please stop by http://redintheface.wordpress.com/
Asked by Leanora Lavatch 6 months ago.
Didn't take Oracea but was on doxycycline for close to a year. I stopped taking it because it's an antibiotic and I'm pretty sure it's not good to be on those for that long. What has worked wonders for me is a face cream called Finacea. It has to be prescribed by your dermatologist and has taken away most of the redness and completely eradicated the pustules all together. Oracea I believe is a tetracycline which is an antibiotic - so if your concerned about the duration of time you're to take it and want an alternative that will help your problem ask your doc about Finacea.

Can i take adderall if im prescribed to oracea?
will it cause any side effects?
Asked by Curtis Cavallaro 6 months ago.
Oracea (doxycycline) does not have any clinically significant interactions with Adderall (mixed amphetamine salts). If both drugs have been prescribed to you it should not be a problem. Answered by Viola Chaloner 6 months ago.
Has anyone out there who has roasea tried oracea for this particular skin problem? If so, what have your resu?
I am taking a antibiotic, creams such as reti-a and I still have breakouts daily. Iam 54 and cannot get this under control.
Asked by Julio Washup 6 months ago.
Oracea has had some good results..You are 54?..Sounds like hormone changes could be adding to your problem..just like they do in our teen years..Have you talked to your dermatologist about laser or Intense Pulsed Light treatment?.People are having great results with this and it is defiantly worth looking into.. Answered by Eloisa Stelter 6 months ago.
i was prescribed it but then researched it and read its an antibiotic. i don't think its healthy to take antibiotic daily so even though my rosacea is driving me up the wall i won't take oracea. Answered by Darrin Winlock 6 months ago.
Acne cure through Oracea?
Dan, ProActiv has worked on my face for about five years now, so I don't really find it to be a scam at all! Can anyone else answer my questions about Oracea?
Asked by Jarrett Landry 6 months ago.
Last week I saw a dermatologist for a moderate acne problem on my back and shoulders. I've had acne there for about 5 years and tried ProActive and all kinds of benzoyl peroxide and salicytic acids but nothing has worked so far (except by bleaching my clothes!). Anyway, I've recently read that Oracea is primarily used to treat rosacea. Is it going to help reduce/eliminate my acne? How long should it take to work? It's only been five days, so I obviously don't expect results yet, but I'm just curious as to how long I should expect to wait to see them! Thanks!! Answered by Travis Swift 6 months ago.
PROACTIV IS A SCAM AND DOESNT WORK. Nothing works better than accutane. It shuts off your sebaceous glands. Proactiv is a scam and so is any other prescription such as retina micro, doxycycline, etc. These are all scams. I've tried them all! Go see your dermatologist and pick up Accutane. I was on it for 8 months and never get pimples on my face anymore (which is what really matters). You can also ask for isotretinoin cream .25% (.50 is a bit too strong). THIS WILL MAKE YOUR ACNE GO AWAY FAST. Thank me later. UPDATE: Read my response to you regarding proactiv in the other question you answered. Regarding Oracea it is just doxycycline with a different name! While it may work for Rosacea (I wouldn't know) it definitely does not work for acne (at least in my case). I have taken this stuff before. As I said, acne is no longer a problem for me anymore. If you have questions feel free to IM me.. dannyg408 on AIM. Answered by Lanie Sobenes 6 months ago.

Oracea used to treat acne?
I was prescribed Oracea for pretty mild acne. Does this work? It's an antibiotic, no? (It is oral medication; a capsule pill.) What are your experiences with Oracea used for acne, or just doxycycline used to treat acne in general?

I am currently using Oracea for my rosacea and mild acne. While it is helping, I did read that "efficacy beyond 16 weeks and safety beyond 9 months have not been established." When I expressed my concern about this to my dermatologist, he said something along the lines of, "I don't know what websites you have been reading, but I don't think that is true." What I wanted to say was that the statement was from the company. However, I was not 100% certain of the source at the time, and did not speak up since I did not want to get shot down again. Later, I went home and found the statement on the company's website. I have been using Oracea for 8 weeks. How much longer should I continue to use Oracea? Also, is it unreasonable for me to want to switch Dermatologists based on my current one's attitude and treatment towards my concerns? Answered by Toney Ghantt 6 months ago.
If you like them otherwise, I wouldn't change based on this one incident. Especially since in many areas it is difficult to get in to see a dermatologist. What the company means is that the drug has not been tested beyond that time frame. The medication has been used for years, only the 40 mg slow release is new. Doxycycline has been around for years and is used by many long term for acne and rosacea. If if works keep doing it. Reconsider changing docs if it happens again. Consider a dermatology PA next time.
