How to wean off antibiotics?

Recommended Posts

If your derm has never told you how to properly wean off antibiotics after using them, can anyone tell me how to do it?

(To avoid beaking out like mad when cutting an antibiotic cold turkey)

Hiya! A good way to wean is to get your derm to lower your dosage by half. If your pills are solid (not gel caps) you can cut or break them in half yourself. Take half of your full strength dose for about a month. Then knock it down to every other day for a month, then every two days and so forth until you eventually stop. Hope that helps!
