Erythromycin, Clindamycin, Amoxicillin, any cephlasporin (Keflex, etc)........just no tetracyclines (doxy, mino, etc)...

Not everyone gets and initial breakout...........it's only someting like 20% of patients.......

I though I was going to get one.....but so far it's not happening......my acne is the same as....if not a little better........

I'm on cephalexin. best AB I've tried. and it is safe to use on accutane. I think the reason I'm not getting cysts is the antibiotic.

What she is saying is that all antibiotics are OK except the ones that end in -cyclin. This is because -cyclin antibiotics can interact with Accutane and increase the risk of a serious side effect called psuedotumor cerebri. There is no increased risk from other types of antibiotics, just the -cyclins. The ones she listed are the ones commonly prescribed for acne that aren't -cyclins.
