Whoooooooo Hooooooooo! I've made it to 7 weeks on Taz! I can't believe it. I'm more than halfway to the recommended 12 weeks. I think the initial breakout is coming to a close. The breakout has been going on for 4 weeks with me. It's been an annoying process but this week, I've only had one small whitehead that was gone by the time I went to bed. The hyperpigmented areas are getting lighter but aren't as light as I would like them to be at this point. If the progress continues in this direction, I can only imagine what my face will look like in a couple of 2 more weeks.
In the first weeks of starting Taz, there was so much coming out of my pores- blackheads, whiteheads, and anything else that was lying dormant underneath the surface. Now, my face feels so smooth. I can't believe it. I just hope it gets even better.
I'm still using Minocycline 100MG once per day. My doc plans on taking me off antibiotics after 5 more weeks of using it. He said Taz will work on it's own if used everyday and in the future, it can be used every other day.
I'm also putting Clindamycin foam on my face in the mornings before applying moisturizer. That may also be contributing to minimal breakouts.... but based on research, my breakouts should be subsiding at this point and completely gone by week 9.
STICK WITH IT-- that's my motto! I really think this stuff works.
Until next time....
