Minocycline: I got prescribed 50mg, once a day.

Recommended Posts

So I went to the docter last week and she prescribed me Minocycline, 50mg a day. I take it every night before I go to bed. It's been a week and I don't see ANY results so far. I know it'll take 4-6 weeks or more for the medicine to take effect... What's bothering me though, is that I've been getting breakouts even MORE frequently than usual! Other than that, I'm not experiencing any side effects.

Most people here seem to take at least 100mg a day. Is 50mg way too little?

(I think the doctor prescribed me so little because I was wearing cover up at the time, which hid most of my acne.)

I'm almost 17, and I have mild-moderate acne. Heightwise, I'm a little over 5'4 (165cm), and my weight flactuates between 98lbs to 102lbs (45kg-47kg).

You're so little. 50mg might be enough. Give it the 4-6 weeks. If you don't see improvement by then, see if your doctor will up your dosage.
