Doxy not working after 5 weeks

Recommended Posts

I'm 20 years old. I've been on Doxycycline for 5 wks and my face still is broken out. Not as bad as it was but I thought it would help a lot more than this. I have moderate acne. I am thinking it is hormonal because right after I get off my period my face clears up dramatically. I was taking BC 2 yrs.ago and I would get cyctic acne very bad and I am thinking that was the cause of my acne so I stopped with BC, luckily it is not near as bad now. I am very against BC pills for this reason.

Unfortuanately, I now have irregular periods and the doxy isn't helping, only a little after 5wks. Should I try going back on BC? Should I stick with the Doxy longer? Should I switch to Minocycline? I'm going to the derm hopefully on Monday. I just want my face to clear up!!!!!!!!!!

Keep taking! Takes 6-8 weeks to see clearing begin and 8-12 for total clearing...then red marks fade with preventative doxy use...
