Could you try switching to a different anti-biotic to see if it lessens the side effects?  I am taking tetracycline, which is in the same family and have had no side effects at all. I am also using differin, which may also be helpful for you. I am 3 weeks into treatment with both and am seeing some improvments. Good luck with whatever you try!
