Hey guys. I ve been taking tetralysal for almost 2 weeks now and my skin has cleared up completely. Before I was taking it I usually had about 3 cysts in total on my face....usually on my cheeks and chin and they wouldn't go away. A while ago I used zynerit but then my skin got used to it so it didn't work properly anymore. I wanted to take roaccutane so I decided to see a doctor, but then when I got there he said that he would rather try tetralysal first to see how it would work. I saw how my skin cleared up from the first days and now it's getting better and better. I still have red scars from my previous cysts but woth foundation all that is covered and I have beautiful baby skin. I love it!!!! I am really scared thought that when I stop taking it...the acne might come back. I saw some of you take it on an empty stomach. I don't do that. And I only take it once a day whenever I remebmer and it has great effect.

Good luck with it!!!

Hello all. I was just looking through websites to seek reviews about this product due to curiosity of others experiences whilst using this product, and this website in particular has been good use.

I'm 16 years old and have had acne probably from the age of 11. It's only recently that i thought i had to do something about it, as i normally have just brushed it off by saying 'it will disappear' so i went to the doctors and was prescribed 3 months worth. I only have 2 weeks to go but i am going to ask for a repeat presription, which my doctor said i should ask for if the product was working.

When first taking Tetralysal i noticed an instance smoothness to the skin, though i knew total- clear up wouldn't happen instantly. It appeared that my body was starting to get used to the product, and now my face is a lot clearer though i still have a few pimples. I have also had a few breakouts but my advise is to carry on taking the product! i take it every morning, usually not eating for an hour after. I've had a few side effects however, for instance headaches and the feeling of sickness, but if they persist it's best to see your doctor.

Good luck to all, and the best advise to be given is to keep at it, antibiotics do take time.

im newish to tetralysal 300, have been using for around 3 weeks with one capsule daily... and im not sure its doing much for my acne : (
so i was wondering if anyone could tell me whether increasing my dosage to two capsules a day would either help or be incredibly unhealthy?

I've been takin tetralysal for about 8 weeks. Was taking two capsules every day and saw an improvement really fast, redness went down,cysts were gone - i had loads which lasted ages and were so, so painful. I was only supposed to take 2 per day for a month so down to one, however, since then my face is sore again, red and more spots back.

Going to go back the doctor but I think I need to keep taking two. Very dissapointed my skins gone backwards!

I'm 28 and its the first time a gp hasn't just turned me away without a thought. I wish I'd known about these before, all those years ago!

My sister is 37 and still suffers and I really don't want to be like that .

Hi guys
I'm new to the site, but just wanted to post on this thread as I've started taking tetralysal about 3 and a bit weeks ago. I've read on a few other sites that people have found tetralysal works but they minute they come off it their skin is worse than before. My skin isn't dreadful at the minute but I reckon the sun has helpped alot, but its a constant pain in my ass. Its mostly my chest and back that have problems, and I was wondering do u have to take it for a while before it starts to take effect?

Sorry if these questions have been answered before!

Thank
A

Hi Amy, also started on this about 3 weeks ago! Havn't seen results myself yet but am staying hopeful! It seems to affect different people at different rates.....some have said its worked within 2 -3 weeks, but others over a month. Stick at it for a while! And i totally know what you mean about the sun, had two holidays at the beginning of the year and after the second one was pretty much clear. soon came back though. sad.gif

You definitely want to give it at least 2 months i'd say. good luck with it x

I stopped taking Lymecycline a long time ago, and i've been taking doxycycline for the past 3 months, it is much better.

Lymecycline has to be taken on an empty stomach so it never really got going for me, wheras doxycycline can be taken with food. Why did your doctor take you off doxycycline?!!

On a side note, Lymecycline has this horrible yellow powder inside the capsules.. I cut one open into the sink and the smell was terrible. I wouldn't like that in body tbh.



I have been on Lymecycline for nearly a month, I have noticed sight improvement but recently I have noticed it all starting to come back sad.gif

I have noticed lots of people saying that their GP topped up the dosage to two capsules a day, and I think I need to go and see my GP again to ask if I could have a presciption of two a day because it is seeming to worsen again.. but because i am only 16, do you think she will top up my dosage to two a day? I really need it to go away, as we all want it to! sad.gif

Yes, I am 16 too! And have had it since 11 as well, only seeking a GP's advice until recently. Did you take it twice a day? Because I don't think 1 capsule a day is working for me sad.gif

Last November i went to the doctor for the first time about my acne. He put me on Duac, a cream antibiotic. This worked wonders! it cleared my skin almost completely in just a few weeks. I was over the moon with the results eusa_dance.gif I was on them for about 5 months until bacteria developed resistance to the antibiotic and i had a breakout of spots!

I am now on tetralysal 300 one capsule a day. I've been on it for little over a month now and have seen little improvements. The doctor said it would take 2 weeks before i seen any difference, which is yet to happen. He also but me on brevoxyl (a cleanser) which is supposed to get rid of blackheads but i havn't notices any difference confused.gif

I think i'll have to increase my dose to two capsules, cause i'm seeing little difference!

Its sooooooo anoying when you think you got rid of them for good but they come back as bad as ever!!

Had really bad a acne, my face was covered, then started taking Tetralysal tablets 1 a day for 4 months, face cleared up perfectly, then left it for a month and spots started coming back, the thing is it is well known that if you are going to go on antibiotics then you have to stay on them for 6 months or more, no stopping and then starting again, but it also helps if you know a bit about was causes spots in the first place and how to treat them, basically poures get blocked which means the natural oils can't get to the face, the oils then get attacked by bacteria which creates a spot, what people don't know is that the white puss that you see on the end of a spot is actually the white blood cells trying to destroy the bacteria. So don't try to pop it or it gets worse
You must remember though whatever someone says its not food that causes spots like junk food or greasy food, it all comes down to hormones, just think back to before you started puberty, clear faces, so eventually when the hormones settle down no more spots will be created, what you have to remember is not to panic, there are so many people that have felt bad because of there spots, but it does get better, just give it time.

I was using alot of products to try to clear a few spots over my face, but then it was getting worse everyday... so I went to see my doctor, and he just told me to use Tetralysal and see how I got on with that. I was using it for a few weeks and my spots had completely cleared, and it was going very well. Everyone has different skin, it just depends, and my acne wasn't the worse case, just a few over my nose and chin area. But it works for me

I was on Tetralysal (1 a day) for about a year and did see some improvement, after about 3 months. I was down from having maybe 3 cysts a month to just one.
After a year, I decided to try stopping. For one week I had amazing skin, then it went back to 3 cysts a month or so, and then worse to a couple at a time all the time. (I've just started Doxy now)

Things I do recommend with Tetralysal are:
Take the tablet with a big glass of water and food in the morning. I used to be able to feel it getting stuck in my throat and drinking a pint of water would wash it down and the food helped to keep it their. If I didn't eat, I could taste it in my throat - and it's pretty rank!
The worst I ever did was taking the tablet in a bit of a hurry with a sip of water - I could feel it in my throat and then I burped (but didn't open my mouth) and saw a cloud of powder emerging from my nostril and a burning sensation in my nose! Yep, I burped that foul smelling and tasting stuff out of my nose - ow! So take them with water and food!

I never had any side effects and do recommend them. My Dr just thought I could try a different antibiotic to see if it could help a little more.

Good luck if you are on Tetralysal though! smile.gif Keep perservering - it would be unusual to see results immediately but hopefully in time you will!

I was on Tetralysal for about 3 months last year, I didn't think there was any improvement but my mum did. A few months later I prescribed to it again, took it for about 2 months and failed to see any improvement.

A year has passed and I have used absolutely no treatments on my acne since. My acne isn't really bad, but it's a nuisance. I get small whiteheads every morning when I wake up, and I have a lot of scarring from previous pimples. I get about 4 pimples which are deep under the skin every month.

So I am about to begin taking Tetralysal again. I'll let you know when and if I see any improvements, fingers crossed!

Hi all

iv been prescribed tetralysal 300 by the doctors

i noticed that on the leaflet it says that it can affect the contraceptive pill.

i have the implant and have been trying to find out if it affects the implant too?

the implant and pill are used for the same thing so why would it affect one and not the other??

thank u

Im 37 years old and have had acne since I was 10. I have been on Roaccutane twice. Oxytetracycline and various drugs, lotions and potions. I have body acne now and folliculitus. I was put on Tetralysal 300 today. I'm going to give it a go.

There was a bit of scare-mongering on the other posts I want to clear up.

An antibiotic capsule will smell terrible when it is opened as antibiotics come from moulds or fungus. Google "Fleming" the scientist that discovered penicillin if you are interested.

Fungal infections from long term antibiotics are common but its treatable.

Eating bio yoghurts and drinking bio drinks can help protect the gut. Ask doctor about taking acidophilus capsules as they can protect the gut.

I have IBS so antibiotics can make it worse. I find peppermint or chamomile tea soothing and also carrot soup is great for the gut. I also drink the bio drinks.

Always follow your doctors treatment and if you have a problem or bad side effect with it discuss it with them. Don't just stop taking it because of a worry that your doctor or pharmacist could explain you could upset your treatment unnecessarily.

I will let you know how I get on. I will be interested to see the others results too. Good luck my fellow Tetralysal's
