doxy , what is the longest it takes to be clear?

I am on my 3rd month and still have breakouts. Initially the doctor said it will take two months and I will be clear. Now he is saying 4 months. From reading on here I see people saying it should just take a month. Is my dermatologist crazy?

Well I've been on Doxy for about 17 months now and it still works for me. It took several months to see any results though. Also, I don't recommend staying on antibiotics for as long as I have. I am going to gradually wean myself off of them this summer.

You never know, the medicine could kick in and clear you up in a few months, OR you could just be wasting time, when you could be getting on Accutane, and clearing your skin faster.

Personally, i was on minocycline for 3 months, and saw NO results, so my derm gave me a choice, i said fuck it, and got on Accutane, i am now on day 13 of my course.

I'm not trying to bribe you into anything, or manipulate you, but the choice is yours.
