What is a generic medication?
Generic medications are significantly discounted copies of brand name medication that have the same active ingredients, intended use, dosage, side effects, effects, and route of administration as the original brand name medication. In other words, generic medications have the same pharmacological effects as their brand-name counterparts. Over half of all prescribed medications are for generic medications.

Oracea is used to treat a certain type of skin condition called rosacea. It helps to reduce the number of pimples and bumps on the face, but it may not decrease redness. It works by reducing skin inflammation caused by rosacea. Although doxycycline belongs to the class of antibiotics known as tetracyclines, Oracea does not work as an antibiotic because it does not stop the growth of bacteria. Do not use Oracea to treat any infection, including viral infections (such as the common cold, flu). Use Oracea only as prescribed by your doctor.
How to Use Oracea
Read the Patient Information Leaflet provided by your pharmacist before you start using Oracea and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist. Oracea is best taken by mouth on an empty stomach, at least 1 hour before or 2 hours after a meal, usually once daily in the morning or as directed by your doctor. Swallow the capsules whole. Do not crush or chew the capsules. Doing so can release all of the drug at once, increasing the risk of side effects. Take Oracea with a full glass of water (8 ounces/240 milliliters) unless directed otherwise. If stomach upset occurs, taking it with food or milk may help. However, doxycycline may not work as well if you take it with food or milk (or anything high in calcium - more details below), so ask your doctor or pharmacist if you may take it that way. Do not lie down for at least 10 minutes after taking Oracea. Take Oracea 2 to 3 hours before or after taking any products containing aluminum, calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc or bismuth subsalicylate. Some examples include antacids, didanosine solution, quinapril, vitamins/minerals, dairy products (such as milk, yogurt), and calcium-enriched juice. These products bind with doxycycline, preventing your body from fully absorbing the drug. For the best effect, take this antibiotic at evenly spaced times. To help you remember, take it at the same time each day. Do not skip doses or take more of Oracea than prescribed. Tell your doctor if your condition does not improve or if it worsens.
