It would depend on your derm i think. I know i tried as many as i could lol accutane is great, but the last time i took it i had REALLY bad ingrown toe nails that were so painful.

Its up to you though, most people have temporary success with antibiotics but it seems you have to keep using them for the effects to be sustained.

I tried tetracycline and minocycline when my acne was very severe, both with no success. My acne eventually cleared with dianette, but came back a few years later moderately and temporarily cleared with a combo of medicines, one of which was doxycycline. I am now on tane after it came back in a mild to moderate form. I'd say you'd need to have tried at least 2 or 3, but it would depend on the severity of your acne. And also how persistant it is.
