Minocycline Questions! Please Helpp

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone

So I've been on minocycline for last 9 months. My acne got 100 percent clear in the first 6 months but then slowly I noticed I was breaking out again. I realized I am probably getting resistant to it and decided not to up my dosage to 200mg a day and stayed on 100. Its been 9 months now and I'm not sure but I think it doesn't work anymore. Whenever i eat sugary food I break out a lot which was not the case when mino was first effective.

My question is should I go cold turkey with mino and just stop taking it since its not working anyways? I'm just scared I'll break out like crazy if I do. Am I already resistant to it? I went from being 100percent clear on mino to 50percent clear.

Also can I come back to mino say after like a year or so? Will I still be resistant?

Can I up my dosage to 200? Can 200mg of mino be taken in one go?

Should I switch to bactrim instead?

Pleaseee let me know !!! I'm going back school after a month and don't want to look ugly on my first day back after a year.
