Antibiotics + Accutane at the same time?

Recommended Posts

I've seen a few people say that they used an antibiotic for a short period of time at the beginning of their accutane course in an effort to reduce the severity of their initial outbreak. I like the idea (of course I want to reduce my IB!) So, a couple of questions . . .

1) What antibiotics did you use?

2) When did you stop taking the antibiotics (2 weeks after starting accutane, 1 month, etc?)

3) Do you think it helped?

I used cephalexin, 500mg 3x/day. for about 1.5 months while i was on accutane, but i was using it for several months before that. i definitely think it helped. i had no IB.
