Medocycline (aka Tetracycline, Acromycin and more)

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'm currently suffering from a moderate breakout on my face and back. The dermatologist initially suggested me to try just topical medication (Duac) first, but he prescribed me with Duac and a 2-week course of Medocycline in the end since I'm quite desperate for a quick fix.

After googling at home about Medocycline, I get quite confused by the restrictions and wonder if it is common to get some unpleasant side-effects during the medication. I'm particularly aware of the note about avoiding all diary products 2hr before and 6hr after each dose; and the one about taking it 1hr before or 2hr after meals.

I haven't started taking Medocycline and would love to know more about its effects and effectiveness before anything. One last question for the past or current Duac users, I gathered from the forum that Duac is real good, but does it work well without additional medication?
