How common is this? According to most sources Tetralysal should not affect adult teeth, but I've come across quite a few message board posts on the topic.

I'm starting to doubt whether it's worth risking. I don't want to have bad teeth AND bad skin Posted Image What's your experience?

Oops, I just realised I posted this in the logs forum. Feel free to remove it.

I've been on this for a while now and my teeth are the same colour as they were before taking them. My teeth are also weakened because I just got out of braces recently.

Currently clear of acne with the occasional hormonal breakout. Check out my routines and progress updates here:

Treat yourself as you treat others.

I have been on all sorts of tetracyclines on & off for 5-6 years now & have not experienced this effect. I do find that yeast grows more easily in the mouth though (the white pasty stuff in the morning- sorry for the gross factor) so good dental hygiene is a must.

I've experienced no real side effects of tetracyclines apart from a doxy getting stuck in my oesophagus once- but it was my fault for taking it 2 minutes before lying down to bed. Caused heartburn the next day but nothing too bad.
