Oracea Information:

Oracea (Generic name: doxycycline) belongs to the class of antibiotics known as tetracyclines, and is used to treat many different bacterial infections. It is also commonly prescribed to treat skin conditions like acne and rosacea. Take this drug at evenly spaced intervals as recommended by your doctor. Doxycycline can make birth control pills less effective, so use a second method of birth control while you are taking Oracea.

Oracea Side Effects:

Serious side effects are rare with this medication. The most common Oracea side effects are upset stomach, nausea, diarrhea, or mild headache. Contact your doctor if you notice white patches in your mouth, a change in vaginal discharge or other symptoms, as prolonged or frequent use of Oracea can cause thrush or yeast infections. Tell your doctor immediately if you develop persistent diarrhea; abdominal or stomach pain; blood or mucus in your stool; difficulty swallowing; discoloration of your teeth, skin, lips, tongue or gums; unusual tiredness; signs of infection, or a change in the amount or color of your urine.

Oracea Precautions:

Do not take Oracea if you are allergic to tetracycline or related drugs. Always tell your doctor about all the medications and supplements that you are taking. Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you have had any history of kidney disease, liver disease, problems swallowing, esophagus problems, stomach or gastric bypass surgery, or lupus. This medication should not be prescribed to young children, as it may cause permanent tooth discoloration.
