Minocycline 50 Mg



Hey everyone! I know its been forever since I posted but it's only because I've stopped obsessing over my face! thank god, such a horrible stage i went through! I just wanted to update the changes I've made in my daily regimen. hopefully it can helps others who has hormonal acne like myself!

Go to the doctor!!! I waited way too long to go. I always thought you had to go to the dermatologist and I couldn't afford it so I never went. Luckily, doctors can prescribe you with stuff!

For the last two months I have been taking Minocycline, one 50 mg pill a day. I recently up'd my dose to twice a day and the results are amazing! I barely ever get pimples around my mouth anymore. I mean around that time of the month a few pop up but that's just hormones!

In conjunction with washing my face day and night the minocycline has worked wonders for me. I'm going to continue to take them until I feel like I'm fine without them.

Feel free to ask me any questions about the products or medications i am on!!!


Have you considered a stronger acne fighter like Amoxicillin or cephalexin? Ask your doctor about those two at around 1,000mg a day (if you want to).

When I went to a doc about taking Mino, he said he couldn't prescribe me it that he could but he wasn't going to cause he no experiences with it. I broke down. Terrible day. Let it all out in the car. Then a wk later found an affordable Derm. You're lucky you found a doc who actually has experience, =) I however had no luck.
