Would it be bad to take an antibiotic such as doryx (doxycycline) for my acne while taking probiotics?

Doxycycline. This antibiotic may kill many of the strains of bacteria contained in probiotics, but beyond that it is not bad in the sense that it is likely to cause further problems.

Will my acne get worse after I go off doryx (doxycycline)?

It can. Not only does the Doxycycline suppress the bacteria that cause acne, it exhibits an modest antiinflammatory effect. Coming off of it may lead to an acne flare, but that is not guaranteed.

I had bad side effects on doxyxycline. I was prescribed Doryx (doxycycline) 150 mg for acne. Since it is delayed released would the symptoms be milder?

Depends. If it was a stomach side effect (cramps, diarrhea) possibly. However, skin reactions like severe sunburns, etc should not be affected by a delayed release. Allergic reactions would also not be affected to any degree.

Is it actually healthy for me to take doxycycline for acne?

YES. Doxycycline is a very safe antiotic and attacks many differents bacterias, mainly from the skin.
