Just come off doxy cos it seems to have become ineffective. I think i'm resistant to it now. Do u think I will flare up or should I be ok cos my body has become resistant to it. (I have moderate acne).

i was told that you have to stay on an antibiotic for acne for up to 6 months to see a result as acne responds extremely slowly. But if it doesn`t improve at all in 2 - 3 months you should get a different drug.

#-o How impatient of me! Ha! biggrin.gif/ Oh well, I'll guess I'll wait for a few more months. :-k I don't remember how long did it take for my acne to start clearing when I took Doxycyline about 2 years ago. I think it was like 2 months. smile.gif It cleared my acne like magic! :-# Accutane didn't work for me much.
