who has doxy NOT worked for?

Recommended Posts

for anyone who was on doxy and it didnt work for them, what progression of solutions did your dermatologist try? here's my deal...

-tried 1 pill of doxy per day for 6 weeks, and i was still breaking out.

-i'm currently on 2 pills of doxy per day, and i need to wait another 4-5-6 weeks to see if it works.

-if the 2 doxy pills per day doesnt work, my derm said we'll probably try mino.

-if the mino doesnt work, he said we'll go right to accutane rather than waste time playing with every antibiotic on the planet.

now, if my current situation of 2 doxy pills per day doesnt work, im considering skipping the mino and going right to accutane. i have mild-moderate acne, but its like, i have to wait another 5 weeks to see if this doxy works. then ill have to wait another 6 weeks to see if the mino works - at that point, itll be like 4-5 months since i first wanted to take a serious step to get rid of my acne. thoughts?

I was on Tetra, doxy, mino and none of them worked for me. I was tkaing them in conjunction with Nicomide and either Tazorac or Azelex. We tried so many different combinations I can not remember them all. My body has, unfortunately, built up a resistance to those antibiotics and they are no longer effective for my acne. Since I am allergic to penicillin, this is NOT a good thing!!

I started Accutane Feb 2nd and my face is almost perfectly clear. I have 3 tiny zits. I am totally loving Acctutane!

Best of Luck!
