How many of you took minocycline and it eventually stopped working?

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to see exactly how many people have tried minocycline and eventually it stopped working and the acne came back and in some cases even more severe than before.

I did. Stopped working after about 6 months...and didn't really clear up my skin perfectly either. Sorry for the bad news :)

I used it for a while

my acne never went away 100% but it was a lot tamer.

once I became immune to it, things got worse than before.

Took it for a year and was clear. Stopped working, acne got worse when I went off than before I took it.

It cleared me up, but after stopping, my acne came back. I went back on it, and it didn't work the same- I was immune to it. Sorry to break that to you, try something long term.

I had the same results as Liv. It worked for me at first. I went off it and was good for several months. When I took it again, it was not effective at all and the acne got worse than ever. I think I built up a resistance. Accutane was the soulution for me.

P&W

I was on minocycline twice before. Both times I was absolutely 100% clear. No pimples, no red marks - NOTHING. Just a clear acne free face. In fact you couldn't even tell I had acne.

Unofrtunately, both times when I came off the minocycline or reduced my dosage to once a day, the acne came back. Last time the acne came back a lot worse and my face looked terrible again.

I went back on minocycline and it cleared me again completely but the acne returned yet again.

I think I'm just going to try accutane to end my battle with acne for good.
