... on this m
Hello mypetfurby, & welcome to the site Monodox is an antibiotic also known as doxyclycline. I am sure it is quite safe for you son to take. I am giving you a link to read about the side effects & about this medication below in blue. You didn't say why he is on it, but assume doctor knows what he is talking about. Best of wishes to you both...
My son has been using doxycycline for acne for several months with great results (along with a face wash and some topicals) I wont allow him to take Accutane and this drug is much safer than Accutane! My son is 17 and has had no side effects from this drug although he does have to watch going in the sun because he burns a little faster but that is true for the topicals he is using as well. He has had no real problems taking it although the drug can have the side effects of nausea, vomiting and diarrhea as almost any antibiotic does. This drug has cleared my boys acne up pretty nicely.
