What is Oracea?

Oracea is a prescription medication primarily used to treat inflammatory lesions (papules and pustules) of rosacea in adults. It contains doxycycline, which is an antibiotic that also possesses anti-inflammatory properties. Oracea is typically taken orally in the form of capsules.

Oracea is primarily used for the treatment of inflammatory lesions associated with rosacea in adults. Rosacea is a chronic skin condition characterized by redness, flushing, visible blood vessels, and often acne-like bumps on the face.

How to Take Oracea

Oracea is usually taken once daily, preferably in the morning on an empty stomach or as directed by your healthcare provider. It's essential to swallow the capsule whole and not crush, chew, or break it. You should also avoid lying down for at least 10 minutes after taking Oracea to prevent irritation of the esophagus.

Side Effects of Oracea

Like any medication, Oracea can cause side effects, although not everyone experiences them. Common side effects may include:

  • Nausea
  • Diarrhea
  • Upset stomach
  • Vomiting
  • Headache
  • Dizziness
  • Skin rash or itching

Serious side effects are rare but may include severe stomach pain, difficulty swallowing, chest pain, or symptoms of a severe allergic reaction such as rash, itching/swelling (especially of the face/tongue/throat), severe dizziness, or trouble breathing.

It's essential to contact your healthcare provider if you experience any severe or persistent side effects while taking Oracea.


Can I take Oracea with food?

It's generally recommended to take Oracea on an empty stomach, preferably at least one hour before or two hours after meals. However, your healthcare provider may provide specific instructions based on your individual situation.

How long does it take for Oracea to work?

Improvement in rosacea symptoms may be noticeable within a few weeks of starting Oracea. However, it may take several weeks to months to see the full effects of the medication. It's essential to continue taking Oracea as prescribed even if you don't see immediate results.

Can Oracea be used during pregnancy or breastfeeding?

Oracea is not recommended for use during pregnancy or breastfeeding unless the potential benefits outweigh the risks. It's essential to discuss the risks and benefits with your healthcare provider before taking Oracea if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

Can I drink alcohol while taking Oracea?

It's generally advisable to avoid excessive alcohol consumption while taking Oracea, as it may increase the risk of certain side effects such as stomach upset. However, moderate alcohol consumption is unlikely to interact significantly with Oracea.

Can Oracea be used long-term?

Oracea can be used long-term to manage rosacea symptoms effectively. Your healthcare provider will determine the appropriate duration of treatment based on your individual condition and response to the medication.

I've been a Canadian Med Center customer for about 6 years now. In all that time there was never once that I considered taking my business elsewhere. They do a great job and the people they contract with are also super.

Always appreciate their prompt service but especially appreciate their hanging in there when there was difficulty getting my doctor to renew my prescription!
