Can the anti-imflammatory effects of doxycycline wear off?
Hi Dr Latkany,
I have MGD (caused by ocular rosacea) and evaporative dry eye. I have been taking doxycycline for about six months now. In the beginning it helped enormously - my eyelids were much less inflamed and my tear film really improved also. It was like a miracle drug for me.
However really disappointingly in the last few months it appears to have stopped working. Can the anti-inflammatory action of doxcycyline wear off?
Would be most grateful for your thoughts.
