Tetracycline resistance

Recommended Posts

Does anybody know about how long it takes in most people to develop a resistance to an antibiotic like oxytetracycline?

I started taking it in about January, I think - 250mg, two tablets, twice daily and though I saw good results a couple of months in, my acne seems to be creeping its way back now - more and more cysts are being formed and my condition is generally deteriorating, or so it'd seem. sad.gif

I feel like booking an appointment with my GP and telling him I'd like to switch to something else, or something, because I feel the 'effectiveness' of the tetracycline seems to be less than it used to be, but don't know if this is down to resistance, or... confused.gif

All help much appreciated.
