Just doesn't do anything!
Reviewed on September 26, 2014

Took this antibiotic for four months, and never reduced my breakouts. However, this is probably due to the fact i'm 99.9% certain mine is fully hormonal, so therefore if your acne is bacterial it may work for you! I am now proceeding with Dianette the contraceptive pill. But please, if your female and your breakouts are hormonally linked don't waste your time with this antibiotic

I ate this for about 4-5 months, didn't do sh*t at all. It just doesnt work.

Side Effects Became Unbearable

I have been on this antibiotic in my teens (I am now in my 20s) and it was somewhat effective at treating my teenage, typical T-zone acne (although what eventually cleared me up was Erythromycin topical.) I was prescribed a 3 month course of Lymecycline not long ago because my acne had come back in a big way. I don't really trust antibiotics as I know they are quite a temporary solution to the problem of acne, but willing to try anything I proceeded with my dose. I got to week 3 before the cramps in my abdomen were worrying enough for my to stop (after seeing no change in my acne.) Antibiotics mess up your gut flora, something I am very prone to, and eventually the bad outweighed the good. An imbalance in your gut flora can lead to acne in the first place so proceed with antibiotics with caution. A bit of a disappointment overall but worth a try if topical's are not working for you!

I took two or three courses of this antibiotic (prescribed by my dermatologist) last year, because one just didn't seem to be enough. My skin did improve, but I started breaking out again pretty much straight after coming off of it.

Stopped spots from forming

I had cystic acne which was painful, persistent and extremely stubborn. I was put on these tablets and they did help, it takes a while but they did work. I was on them for a considerable amount of time, perhaps just under a year. Doctor recommended coming off them as you're only really supposed to take them for 6 months I hear... I cant think of any complaints about these tablets apart from the fact that they don't really mix well with hormonal tablets, the pill.

Antibiotics and hormone tablets can cause yeast problems, but you have to weigh up whether you would rather have nice skin or a few re-occurring problems ladies. For me I wanted skin not covered in spots. Once coming off these tablets I thankfully didn't break out which I was petrified of.

I have combination oily skin and apparently these tablets shrink the sebaceous glands... stopping oil production, maybe that is why they worked well.

Can keep acne abay

i went through the course of these tablets last year when my acne was mild and it did defiantly clear up my acne! eventually after 6 months of taking these tablets the effect was starting to wear off and i developed pretty bad acne just on my forehead. I then went on accutane for 1 and half months which cleared me up but could not carry on taking due to side effects. I then went back on to tetralysal and realised that it was not doing much but just keeping my acne from going severe. 4 months down the line and i stopped tetralysal again and went the natural way (tea tree tea...) now a month later and i feel i need to keep on taking tetralysal not because i know it will clear my acne up but because it keeps it abay and keeps my skin not so greasy.

Completely cured me after trying numerous antibiotics and creams!

I am aged 15, and I had moderate-severe acne all over my face for roughly a year, and it just kept getting worse. I went to the doctor who prescribed me creams which I tried for months, and if anything made it worse. 4 months ago I was introduced to these tablets and took 1 a day. It did nothing to start with, then my acne gradually began to improve, and about 3 months later my acne had completely cleared - there was not a spot on my face! Naturally I still had a few scars, which is why I continue to take the tablets. They are now fading the redness on my face and the scars are clearing up, too. I used to not leave the house without plastering my face in makeup, but now I am happy for anyone to see my bare face! It was such a relief, because I hated my acne so much, and nothing before this had worked. Would 100% recommend it.

Didn't work

I tried this for a few months and it didn't improve anything in terms of my acne.

Worked a bit at first

On the first couple of weeks i saw minor improvement and it never really got any better than that. Good luck and i hope this works for you!

Didnt work

After seeing my doctor they said i had minor acne and that tetralysal lymecycline would clear it up in a matter of 2 -3 months. I have now been using it for nearly 6 months without missing any days and not only hasnt it cleared it has started to break out in places i never used to get it . This antibiotic isnt cheap either (well for me) so i feel quite decieved by my gp as iv wasted time and money on a useless product. This might just be for me but if you do try it and dont see any positive results i recommend canceling your prescription. :)
