Can taking tetracycline for 3 months ruin your gut flora/balance and cause acne? Im 16 years old and have been using tetracycline with great succes for 3 months, it worked instantly and I didnt have a single breakout in those 3 months. Didn't have any problems upset stomach, only a little "puke-feeling" after taking the pill, but it usually only lasted for 2 minutes.
After stopping tetracycline my acne came back (no big suprise). I've been of it for 1 month now and got some minor breakouts around nose and little bit on my cheeks. Can it be the antibiotic that has done something to my gut or is it just hormones? I eat healthy (no sugar, dairy, processed foods, fat meats, salt, high and medium glycemic foods)
After stopping the medication I have had some minor stomach pains, but nothing special. I've had too high stomach acid before, so I think it could be that. Taking zinc and vitamin D supplements too atm.
