What Are The Alternatives To Doxycycline?

7 posts in this topic

hello, i have been using doxycycline for over 3 months now, but it doesnt seem like working very well.

What are my alternatives? are there other antibitotics i can change to? If i do change antibiotics, do i have to wait about 2-3 months before i can see some change or will it maybe work very soon since i have already been on antibiotics for 3 months ++.?

There are many alternatives....Clindamyacin (topical and oral), Tetracycline, Z-Pac, Amoxycillin, Cephalexil, Minocycline. I have actually been on all of those. Never saw any long-term results, but the ones that cleared me the fastest were Z-Pac (don't remember dose) and Tetracycline (500mg)

I am on 200mg/day, i am taking tablets if that is what you meant :) I think this is the highest dose, at least that what the doctor said.

Can I change to another antibiotic without losing the effect of the other one? What i mean is; the doctor said i had to use the doxy for about 2-3 months to see difference, but if i change now, will i have to wait another 2-3 months or is it just continuiung for the doxy?

thanks guys

My derm gave me a 3-month rule. Any new treatment should be given at least 3 months to see some results.

Doxycycline doesn't work very well for me anymore since I've had so many doses of it over the years. The thing that works best for me are z-pacs of azithromycin. I take it once a month and it keeps me clear. I'd definitely recommend it and it doesn't make your stomach feel bad or have photosensitivity. I can't remember exactly how much I normally take, but I had a bad breakout and my doctor prescribed me 500mg for 6 days. I feel like when I take them normally I take 250mg, but I'm not sure. Definitely ask about it! good luck
