CSR and tetracycline -- info please?

Recommended Posts

Is it safe to use tetracycline while on the regimen? I am wondering because I had my wisdom teeth pulled this morning and am now taking 500mg of tetracycline twice a day (along with an anti-inflammatory (which should help with any acne) and vicoden)).

oral tetracycline won't interact with the bp from the CSR.

In fact, derms often prescribe tetracycline for acne patients.

Thanks. That's what I thought, since I've seen some people (i.e. Superfly, I think) with oral antibiotics in the tetra family (mino) whilst on the regimen.

Buuuut, I did want to ask, just in case there was something I was missing...

I've never used antibiotics while on the regimen. I tried them along with SA and tretinoin though. Useless...

Antibiotics are known in general for being effective against acne just for a determined period of time in most cases. You're lucky to be using it only for your mouth issue :)
