Minocycline, Help!



Hello, I have a few questions about Minocycline and some other things about my acne. Right now I am 16, i've had acne since about age 14. I don't have severe acne by any means, but mild acne. About three months ago I went to the doctor and asked for some sort of medication to help kill the acne. I was perscribed Benzoyl Peroxide 10% cream, and Clindamycin 1% gel. Right when i woke up in the morning I would put on the Clindamycin gel and right before i went to bed i would put on the Benzoyl Peroxide.

In about a month i started to notice some difference but i wasn't all that happy, I wanted something else. I wanted something a little stronger and something i could take orally like a pill and not cremes. So I went to the doctor again and was perscribed Minocycline 100mg a day. I take the pill right before bed and I have been on it for about 3 weeks now.

My acne i would say is about the same maybe a little better than what is was before, I just wanted to know am I going to see bigger results if i wait a few more weeks? Has anyone had success with the Minocycline? And finally, I have an Aloe Vera plant in my house and i recently started putting it on my face as well in the morning and night and was wondering if this would help at all?

All help is appreciated! Thanks!
