Hello, thank you for your enquiry.

For your information, doxycycline is a common medicine use to treat chronic inflammatory acne, which usually take some times to be effective and able to control the acne. In some cases, the patient may need to consume doxycycline for up to 6 months to have a better control of their condition.

The doxycycline use to treat acne will have an optimum dose, which unlikely affect the health status and relatively safe to continue the treatment.

You may refer this problem to your doctor for further information or you may contact us for an online consultation for further assistance as well.

Thank you, we hope our answer has been helpful.
