Minocycline & Tretinoin

I've had moderate-severe acne for the past 9 years now. I've tried numerous different acne medications and none have seem to have made a difference. My dermatologist put me on a 100 mg minocycline pills to take twice daily, and tretinoin 0.1% cream to put on nightly. I was advised to continue this for 3 months, and then we'd judge what to do off of the progress at that point.

So far after a month i've seen NO improvement. My skin seems worse than it was when I started going on the medication and I know it's normal for acne medication to cause an initial purge, but I didn't think it would last a month.

My question is, if anyone else has been on these medications together, did you have similar results? Is my reaction normal?

Thank you!
