What's the point? Doryx

I was originally prescribed 150mg a day of doryx for a severe case of folliculitis on my chest.

I was only prescribed one month of it but I asked for two more months when I began getting large inflamed pustules and cysts which would usually come to a head. These were all under my chin/throat and on my jawline.

Before this I only had only occasional minor acne breakouts near my temples, forehead and mouth.

Essentially I want to get off of doryx cuz I still get the inflamed pustules under my chin/throat area under my jaw.

I don't want to pay my derm 100$ so she can tell me virtually nothing again.

Should I use the last 16 doses of doryx to wean off?

I definately don't want to just stop 150mg abruptly.

Also, haven't I completed a "course" already?

(meaning it has done all it can do for me?)

Lastly- I'm using proactive right now but would like to get off....should I continue using it in order to minimize the post-antibiotic breakout?
