who in here got clear by taking tetracycline???????

Recommended Posts

i don't have insurance therefore getting medications is very hard. it will cost me a lot of money. therefore, i want to know if anyone has any success with tetracyline or other form of antibiotics. that way i don't have to waste money on acne products again. did you acne ever come back from taking it?????

-thx

Didnt work for me either. I believe Minocylince, out of all tetracycline antibiotics out there,

has been proven to be the most effective.

Try that.

I personally find it hard to believe anyone getting completely clear from an oral anti-biotic alone. They don't really tackle the whole issue. Those with extremely mild/mild acne are the only exceptions IMO.

It worked quite well for my facial acne. Didn't do much with the back, however. I didn't like that it worked best on an empty stomach too. My derm weaned me off of it (2 pills a day, 1 pill a day, 1 pill every other day, etc.) until I stopped it completely. About 6 months later my acne came back pretty much full force. Contemplating accutane now.
