Sorry I have never heard of flopen before, I've always used tetracycline which is very good for me. It all depends on your personal chemistry though my acne has always been more infection related it seems then anything I believe tetracycline stops gram-negative bacteria from reproducing while penicillins actually attack bacteria though not gram-negative.

Flucloxacillin is penicillin. I had it for a 10 day period to fight a staphs infection and it worked amazingly in a very short space of time. How long are you on it for though?? Its usually only prescribed for infection and for a short amount of time.  I would advice taking some probiotics or something cos it gets rid of all bacteria, including the good bacteria. I too was on 2000mg a day.
