Is there ANY way to come off

I am not sure if this is a long shot or what, but I've been on Minocycline now for about two months and it has worked wonders, along with some Salycic Acid Soap and a topical I have cleared up but I am nervous about going on.

Almost everywhere that I have read has said that Mino eventually stops working and the acne comes back. Now I am currently 17 and my dad stopped having acne around 18-19 and I am wondering what I should do. My Mino runs out in a few days and I was wondering what you guys think; should I ask for more and keep going or what. My main concern is that it will come back eventually and I will have worse acne than before. I tried Dans regimen but it is too time consuming and didn't work all that well.

Thanks for the help.

Your body will get immune to it eventually. I have great results with doxycycline and minocycline a few years back but acne will come back once our bodies get immune to all this antibiotics. Anyway, try to come out of minocycline slowly rather than straight away as it will cause "rebound" if you do the latter. For example, from 2 capsules a day to 1 capsule a day and then 1 capsule every other day and so on.
