  • doxycycline regime

    Hello, I looking at starting doxy I will speak to my eye doc about this next time I see him. Can I ask at what dosage and for how long people are usually prescribed this?

    I was prescribed 50 mg a day for 3 months. It took 4 to 6 weeks to take effect. Itís important to take a good probiotic while on doxy as it can affect your gut flora.

        I am finding it helpful. However, I am on restasis as well. I think the doxy is really helping thin out the oil in my MGs. I was struggling with severe symptoms up to a few weeks ago. I still have another 6 weeks on doxy. My concerns are that the symptoms will return once I finish the course. I have severe MGD due to ocular rosacea.

          pulsed oral azithromycin is an alternative treatment
