How should I start tapering off lymecycline?

How should I start tapering off lymecycline?


I'm starting treatment of lymecycline after developing resistance to doxy, which I have taken as a temporary measure. I am aware that starting another antibiotic will put me in the exact position I am today -- relying on antibiotics for my skin health. I think there are other ways and as soon as I am done with the antibiotic my plan is to have a means of dealing with what's expected. In terms of what I can do when I start weaning off, here are some questions...

    . what ideas have you tried? What have your dermatologists/aestheticians recommended in similar situations?

    . what have you done in the following acne-combating fronts
        sebum reduction, skin cell turnover, anti-inflammation, antimicrobial?

    .  what's likely to happen once I start weaning off lymecycline?
       .  which of the four factors I listed above would be wisest to attack in this situation?
            .  (I'm currently on tret, .025 nightly, considering upping it to .05.)
            .  would be the best to attack, all other things being equal?

For reference, I'm cross-posting this to

  . Quora
  . reddit
