Slowing down on Menocycline

I've been on minocycline for almost a year now, but my doctor has kept me on it. I've been using Tazorac .005% cream with it for about a month, and now my face is getting really oily and red. Well my question is how do you ween yourself off minocycline without having any severe reactions? Been in school for 4 weeks, so its really annoying to have a severe red face with a white body.

Minocycline is useless when it comes to treating acne and it can cause auto immune disorder side effects. To make it worse, your acne will most likely return after a few months once you stop taking this drug. Maybe you will like to consider Doxycycline if you really can't live without anbiotic. Anyway, all I can tell you is, all forms of antibiotics help only for a while. It is not a permanent cure.
