How long does it take to see results with minocycline??
Posted 15 April 2010 - 03:38 PM
For about 4 months I was on a regiment that included taking Doryx, using Cleocin-T pads, and atralin. It cleared my acne up completely for about 3 months; however, after the 3 month mark my acne came back worse than ever. I would describe my acne as moderately severe. I have some whiteheads, but mostly red bumps on my cheeks, chin, and forehead. My dermatologist prescribed me Minocycline (100mg once a day) and a benzoyl peroxide face wash in addition to the cleocin-t pads and atralin. This is my fourth week on this regiment and my skin has not improved at all. I am also at my second week starting birth control (because my dermatologist suggested that it might be hormonal). I was wondering if I should give up on this regiment as I have seen no improvement yet and it's been a month already. If anyone has any info on how long minocycline takes to see results I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you!

If you do use the antibiotics then use a probiotic afterwards.

I can't take it any more due to taking other antibiotics for an unrelated issue.

Yep Mino worked great for me... but it's greatness was only temporary, my acne came back with a VENGEANCE.

Can someone provide a source for that information? Any reliable source with information on Mino would be appreciated.
