I'd like to know how long people's derm. (or derm. assistant) had you take an antibiotic (before you were to stop it and give your digestive system a break from it)?

You'd think I'd know the answer to this question, since I took several antibiotics for acne years ago. But I can't recall how long a typical course lasted--or how long of a resting period my then-derm. gave me between antibiotic courses.

Thank you,
