Regarding Tetralysal "withdrawal"

Recommended Posts

Hey guys. I'm not gonna go into a long recap of my acne history, but I do have some questions about oral antibiotics and going off them.

Well, after lots of thinking and discussion with my dermatologist I finally decided to take a break from Tetralysal for the summer. She insisted that I quit cold turkey, something that I know a lot of people don't recommend because it increases the risk of a relapse. Well, I did quit cold turkey, (which was about three weeks ago), and I've already noticed some kind of relapse, though I can't really say it's that serious. A couple of pimples on my chin and eyebrow, which I can deal with. I'm just starting to wonder whether or not it will progressively get worse, or if this is just a temporary stage where my bacterial flora haven't "stabilized" yet. How long does it really take before you can be sure it's not getting any worse?
