Pills that aren't antibiotics?

Recommended Posts

I have been on tetracycline for 2 months. Some improvement has been noticeable, but my stomach isn't liking this stuff... I get uneasy just before I even take them! I work outdoors, so the sunlight sensitivity thing is really annoying too.

Anyways, I'm wondering what other treatments are available in pill form other than antiobiotics? I'd like to do some research before I see my doctor in 2 weeks. I hear accutane is the mircle worker, but I'm looking for less side effects.

Any feedback, experiences or tid bits on other meds would be appreciated, thanks.

Jerry

nicomide is a supplement that i am taking instead of antibiotics. i have only been taking it for a month and use it in conjunction with topical products so i cant say how effective it has been but it has zinc and some other supplements that are supposed to help with breakouts. just a suggestion.
