Is Efracea the same as Doxycycline?

Efracea is not the same as Doxycycline. They are two different medications that are used to treat different conditions. Efracea is an acne medication, while Doxycycline is an antibiotic. While they both can be effective in treating acne, they work in different ways and have different side effects.

How long does it take for Efracea to work?

Efracea generally begins to work within 2-4 weeks. However, some people may not see results for several months. It is important to continue using the medication as directed and to talk to a healthcare professional if there are any concerns.

How long can you take Efracea for?

Efracea can be taken for as long as needed to control acne. However, it is important to follow the instructions of a healthcare professional and to not exceed the recommended dosage. If Efracea is taken for an extended period of time, there is a risk of developing resistance to the medication. Additionally, long-term use of Efracea can lead to serious side effects, such as liver damage. Therefore, it is important to use the medication as directed and to talk to a healthcare professional if there are any concerns.

Can you drink alcohol with Efracea?

There is no known interaction between alcohol and Efracea. However, as with any medication, it is always best to talk to a healthcare professional before drinking alcohol while taking Efracea.

How do I order my medication?

Some products only require an online consultation which approximately takes 1 minute to complete, enabling you to then buy the product. Other products will also require a prescription; in this case, you will need to complete the online consultation, and then one of our partner pharmacy prescribers or doctors will review the online consultation questions and approve the order for delivery if you are eligible to purchase the item.

Can I cancel or return my order?

For non-medicinal products, you are eligible to return the product within 14 days of receipt in the same packaging you received. For medicinal products, you are eligible to cancel the order only until it has been dispatched. From that point forward, you are no longer eligible to return the order.
