What type of acne is Seysara (sarecycline) used to treat?

Medically reviewed by Last updated on Oct 18, 2022.

Official answer


Seysara is used to treat moderate to severe acne vulgaris.

Seysara (sarecycline) is a narrow spectrum, tetracycline-class drug FDA-approved for the treatment of inflammatory lesions of non-nodular moderate to severe acne vulgaris in patients 9 years of age and older.

What is non-nodular acne?
In some cases of acne, a nodule will develop deep under the surface of the skin and may persist, developing into hard cysts. Non-nodular acne typically does not involve these deep cysts, but the more typical inflammatory acne lesions (papules and pustules) closer to the surface of the skin.
