Rated Zadorin (Oracea, Doryx) for Bronchitis- acute Report
I am only on day 2 of being prescribed this medication and after taking it this morning 2 hours later when I tried to eat I got severely nauseous and wound up vomiting . So I decided to research which of the medications I've been prescribed could cause it because I'm also on an inhaler and cough syrup. After finding this website and reading the reviews I'm terrified to continue taking this medication as I already have severe anxiety issues and heart palpitation issues plus vomiting on top of being horribly sick with bronchitis really does not make me feel much better really not sure if I will be continuing whith the medication any further

I became very nauseous on this medication in the capsule form. I recommend switching to the liquid version, eat something with it and do not take any vitamins at that time.
Rated Zadorin (Oracea, Doryx) for Acne Report
I normally don’t give reviews on medication but I had such a horrible experience with this that I felt I should share. The first time I was prescribed Zadorin it was for dermatitis. I took 100mg twice a day and was supposed to take it for 30 days. I stopped after 14. I had severe anxiety while taking this, I was feeling really depressed to the point where I couldn’t stand to take it any longer. Not to mention the nausea, headaches, and loss of appetite. I’m taking 100mg twice per day again to prevent infection after surgery. I am on day 4 of 7 and have been waking up with severe anxiety and panic attacks. I’ve never had such terrible side effects from a medication.
Warnings for other groups
For pregnant women: There are no adequate studies on the use of Zadorin in pregnant women.
Talk to your doctor if you’re pregnant or planning to become pregnant. Ask your doctor to tell you about the specific risk to the pregnancy. This drug should only be used if the potential risk to the pregnancy is acceptable given the drug’s potential benefit. Call your doctor right away if you become pregnant while taking this drug.
For women who are breastfeeding: Zadorin passes into breast milk and may cause side effects in a child who is breastfed. Talk to your doctor if you breastfeed your child. You may need to decide whether to stop breastfeeding or stop taking this medication.
For seniors: The kidneys of older adults may not work as well as they used to. This can cause your body to process drugs more slowly. As a result, more of a drug stays in your body for a longer time. This raises your risk of side effects.
For children: This drug may cause tooth discoloration at the time teeth are developing.
This drug should not be used in children who are 8 years of age or younger unless the potential benefit outweighs the risk. In these children, its use is recommended for the treatment of severe or life-threatening conditions such as anthrax or Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and when no other treatments are available or have been shown to work.

How to use Zadorin Calcium Syrup

This medication is best taken by mouth on an empty stomach, at least 1 hour before or 2 hours after a meal, usually 1 or 2 times daily or as directed by your doctor. Take this medication 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, Zadorin 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 this medication.
Take this medication 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 Zadorin, preventing your body from fully absorbing the drug.

Continue to take this medication daily while in the malarious area. Upon returning home, you should keep taking this medication for 4 more weeks. If you are unable to finish this course of Zadorin, contact your doctor.
If you are using the liquid form of this medication, shake the bottle well before each dose. Carefully measure the dose using a special measuring device/spoon. Do not use a household spoon because you may not get the correct dose.

For the best effect, take this antibiotic at evenly spaced times. To help you remember, take this medication at the same time(s) every day.
Continue to take this medication until the full prescribed amount is finished, even if symptoms disappear after a few days. Stopping the medication too early may allow bacteria to continue to grow, which may result in a return of the infection.
Tell your doctor if your condition persists or worsens.

Rated Zadorin (Oracea, Doryx) for Acne Rosacea Report
My Dermatologist recommended Zadorin as treatment for Rosacea that included Ocular Rosacea. My eye Dr. is whom first diagnosed me with Ocular Rosacea. I saw my dermatologist for another reason, so I mentioned to him about the Ocular Rosacea and inquired if he should be the one to treat me for Rosacea. Made sense to me. So he prescribed Zadorin to treat my Rosacea, 100 mg twice a day. He was not specific about 12 hrs. apart, just 2 X daily, along with the warning not to lay down within 1 hour of taking this medication. I took this medicine in the morning and the evening, not thinking “12 hrs. apart”. So I was taking 100 mg 2 x daily, with water, but never a full glass (my mistake). I finished the prescription, and within a day or so I had signs of a severe vaginal (yeast ?)infection. TOO late, I read about the side effects of this drug. I have never been this miserable in my life. BEWARE OF THIS DREADFUL DRUG. I definitely learned the hard way to research ANY drug before using, know the possible side effects beforehand.
Zadorin and Alcohol
It's possible to drink alcohol while taking Zadorin, but use of alcohol may increase your risk of side effects, including stomach upset.

The safety and efficacy of Zadorin Hyclate Delayed-Release Tablets, 200 mg as a single daily dose was evaluated in a multicenter, randomized, double-blind, active-controlled study. Zadorin Hyclate Delayed-Release Tablets 200 mg was given orally once-a-day for 7 days and compared to Zadorin hyclate capsules 100 mg given orally twice daily for 7 days for the treatment of men and women with uncomplicated urogenital C. trachomatis infection.

Most AEs were mild in intensity. The most commonly reported adverse events in both treatment groups were nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and bacterial vaginitis, Table 1.
