Do you take it every day?

Is anyone on a schedule where they don't take antibiotics every day? I'm on tetracycline for Lyme Disease and because it's such a high dose (1500 mg) and I'm experiencing terrible stomach problems on it, my Lyme doc told me to take days off. I've been taking it now for 3 months but not every day consistently, and have also been on spironolactone and retin-a for the same amount of time. My derm figured the tetra would only help my skin, and I had taken it in the past for acne (at a much lower dose) with good results. Now my skin is breaking out worse than it did before I started all these things, and I'm wondering if not taking the antibiotic every day on a regular schedule is keeping me from clearing up, almost like it's a constant initial breakout or something.
