My derm. Prescribed me doxycycline he said take one 1 100mil. For one week then go to taking it 3 days a week. And my acne is serious on my back hows this 3 day a week thing gona work. Im scared hes gona try accutane. If it takes 3 weeks for anti bodics to start workin i dont see how 3 days a week will help. Hes the only derm i found to tak my insurance and i dont trust him. Accutane scares me and he said its the only cure i fear takin it in summer how can i spay tan if im peeling and my hair isnt healthy accutane gona mak it fall out. Any help?

I had mild but stubborn acne on my forehead and I was supposed to take doxy for a month. It went away after only one week of use. Maybe he wants to it the acne hard for the first week and just 3 times a week after for maintenance. I wouldn't mind doing that because the side effects are harsh and continued use could cause resistance for your acne. It makes you feel like you have the touch of the stomach flu and then you are photosensitive. I recommend following the meds as prescribed and ask to have to ramped up to daily if you don't see the desired results after a few weeks. Also, try using refrigerated probiotics to counteract stomach irritation. Good luck!
