Topics I've Started

Swelling From Minocycline?

28 July 2013 - 10:47 PM

I just noticed it this morning, I could be overreacting but like an inch below my left boob it feels sort of swollen? My other side feels like that too, but my left side actually feels kind of weird I don't know really how to explain


this is my 3rd month on Mino and on the side effects list nothing comes up?


Should I continue taking the mino and see if it persists, or what? Mino is an antiinflammatory though so I don't think anything would swell?

Dairy And Minocycline?

20 June 2013 - 11:20 AM

I've heard that you shouldn't drink dairy around when you take an antibiotic because it lessens the effect, but I researched it and found that if you take an antibiotic with food the effects will only just be delayed an hour or so.


Yesterday, I tried doing what the instructions said and I took an antibiotic and didn't eat for an hour, but it kind of made me lose my appetite and I didn't end up eating for 6 hours except for some tea. But, my skin also looks and feels a lot better.


Is the "looks and feels better" due to the minocycline kicking in or is it not eating and following the directions?

Best Bb Cream?

What's the best BB cream for oily and acne prone skin? :,) I'll take opinions as I'm willing to try them out over the summer.


Also an update, tazorac has made my skin more smooth and so much better after only a month, scars are so much easier to cover, too!

18 May 2013 - 05:13 PM

I have to take 100 mg in the morning and 100 more at night

I'm 120 lbs ~50 kg

Accutane/dermatologist Question?

12 May 2013 - 09:27 PM

How likely would a dermatologist agree to put me on accutane on the first visit?

If I brought it up?

Would I absolutely have to agree to take antibiotics or anything else before accutane?

What if I asked for it?




Is there a test they have to take at all? like for my mental health or whatever?



ALSO do I have to take birth control along with it?
