Has Minocycline Stopped Working?

So i was on minocycline 100g for about 6 months and it was going really good, so my dermatologist moved me down to 50g just about 3 months ago. Things were doing good, only getting 1-2 pimples a month or sometimes even none. But exactly a week ago from today, i broke out. There were only about 4 at first, and i was optimistic that they wouldn't last, but they kept coming. Now I counted around 14 new pimples in a week. Luckily, my next appointment is this tuesday. So i was wondering if i should ask her to go back to 100g? Or has my body become immune to antibiotics...she told me if my acne came back, she would probably consider moving me on to Accutane (I had the choice of choosing between accutane and minocycline 6 months ago)
