low dose acc. or high dose minocyclin

Recommended Posts

I am currently taking minocyclin at 100mg twice a day along with retin a at night and elidel cream for dryness etc. Been on mino. for about 1 year and think the dosage is waring off or i just need something else. Am considering taking a small dose of accutane to clear this up completely. My acne is generally mild, a few cysts here and there but nothing major. Sometimes i think some cysts might just be ingrown hairs from shaving? Thats another topic though. I was on accutane about 7 years ago and it really did the job until now. I switched dermos and would be aloud to do lite dose of accutane. Or should i just up my dose of minocyclin? I've heard of people going up to 800 to 1000mg. That sounds pretty high though. Any suggestions?

Raising the dosage of minocycline will do nothing if you have bacterial resistance to it. You need to switch to something else for treatment if its not working.
