How long should I put off Minocycline so I can start taking Ampicillin?



Hi! So I went to my PCP last night, and he prescribed me some minocycline for my acne, (I have been on the medication before). I took a pill last night, and this morning. While I was there, he also referred me to a dermatologist to put me on accutane. So I went to the dermatologist today, and he prescribed me Ampicillin, to prepare me to go on accutane. I was doing some research, and I saw that you should not take these two medications together. So how long until I can take the Ampicillin? I've seen people say that it takes weeks for Minocycline to leave your system, but that it's okay to start taking Ampicillin after 4 days of not having taken anymore Minocycline. I haven't been able to get a hold of the dermatologist, so could I have you advice on how long I should put off the Minocycline so I can take the Ampicillin?
