doryx vs minocyclin

Recommended Posts

heres the 411

i started on doryx, after 4 weeks of doryx i went to a check up at the derm

it didnt look much better so she prescribed me minocycline

LITERALLY the day after my face was clear

i wasnt sure if it was the doryx or the minocycline that had made it clear but it was obviously too late cus i was already given minocycline so i tried that

im nearing 2 weeks of using and i feel nauseous, the derm just called and told me to quit taking the pills untill i feel better

should i ask for doryx again?

or is there any alterative you guys seem to find better?

(besides accutane)

ALSO let me knw your experiences with mino and doryx

thanks a ton!

Well I've been on doxycyline for quite a while now and I have to say, it's sort of helped. I"m going off of it this summer because I see no point in it. The topicals I use keep my acne under control, and eating moderately healthy.

Anyways, I highly doubt that minocycline worked in a single day. It's probably more of the case that the doxy started to kick in around that time and you were the effects of that.

I don't really suggest any antibiotics, especially knowing what I now know about bacterial resistance. Unfortunately, they don't tell you these types of things at the derm.
