Oracea is used to treat a specific type of skin condition called rosacea. It is effective in reducing the number of pimples and bumps on the face associated with rosacea. However, it may not decrease redness. The medication works by reducing skin inflammation caused by rosacea, providing relief from certain symptoms of the condition.

Although doxycycline belongs to the class of antibiotics known as tetracyclines, this product does not work as an antibiotic because it does not stop the growth of bacteria. Instead, it exerts its effects by reducing skin inflammation associated with rosacea, addressing the underlying inflammatory processes contributing to the condition.


  • Take Oracea on an empty stomach, at least 1 hour before or 2 hours after a meal.
  • Swallow the capsules whole with a full glass of water (8 ounces).
  • Take it at the same time each day for the best results.
  • Continue taking Oracea for the entire prescribed duration, even if symptoms improve.
  • Inform your healthcare provider if you experience stomach upset. They may advise taking it with food or milk, but be aware this may reduce effectiveness.
  • Sit upright or stand for at least 10 minutes after taking Oracea.


  • Don't crush, chew, or open the capsule.
  • Don't take Oracea with antacids, calcium supplements, dairy products, or other medications/supplements containing aluminum, calcium, iron, magnesium, or zinc subsalicylate. These can interfere with absorption.
  • Don't skip doses or take more than prescribed.
  • Don't lie down immediately after taking Oracea.
  • Don't discontinue Oracea without consulting your healthcare provider.
  • Don't hesitate to talk to your healthcare provider if your condition worsens or doesn't improve.
