no one really replied to my other topic so i'll ask a quick and simple question here:

I've been on doxy for 6 weeks and now lymecycline for 6 weeks (two tetracycline based drugs). Over that time my acne has got worse. Considering i've given the drugs 3 months, would it be best to stick to the treatments or stop taking them? I feel i've given the drugs enough time but worried i'll break out even worse if i stop taking them.

ANY past experience/advice is appreciated. ta :)

maybe ur not giving the tablets enough time to work, 6 weeks prob aint long enough

im on minocycline n didnt see any positive changes till at least 3 months

it even says on the leaflet u get wit em that acne responds quite slowly to antibiotics n they aint kiddin unfortunately

it takes a lot of patience but it will be worth it all in the end

my advice is pick one drug maybe minocycline if u havent tried that yet n stick it out for at least 4 months... then if u feel it hasnt changed for the better u can consider discontinuing use

anyway i hope it works out for you

take care :)
