So I started Doryx (Doxycycline) on April 9 and it's May 8 here and I want to wean myself off of it. It's been a month and I started having good results at the 2 week mark but now I have 7 active pimples on my face (happened in 2 days) and antibiotics are not a permanent solution so I want to stop taking them.

 

How should I go about this? Currently I take 50mg in the morning and 50mg at night. Should I start taking it just once a day for a week, or every other day or what? I don't want to drag the process forever but I also don't want to break out insanely either.

 

Also, I've decided to start taking zinc and Vitamind D3 tablets instead when I finish Doryx. How much of each should I take per day and how often? Would you also suggest taking them with or without food?

Thanks guys.
