Doxycycline may be a useful adjunctive therapy in severe acne and in acute intestinal amebiasis.

Doxycycline Hyclate Capsules USP, 50 mg and 100 mg, have an estimated market size of USD 80 million for twelve months ending December 2017 according to IQVIA.

Alembic now has a total of 73 ANDA approvals (65 final approvals and 8 tentative approvals) from USFDA.
