wean off antibiotics?

Recommended Posts

hi guys. im 21 right now and was prescribed amoxicillin when i was around 15/16/17 (honestly have no idea exactly when) i haven't been on amoxicillin the entire time. whenever my skin is clear, i try going off but within a few weeks all the acne comes back. i know amoxicillin def works for me, but when i am on it i am also less stressed because i just don't worry about if my skin will breakout, etc. (so clearly i need to work on stress management as well) anyways, i want to get off of it completely but my question is, will weaning off of it really help my skin not freak out as much? weaning off amoxicillin will take about 2-3 months because i'll start at every other day, every 2, every 3, every 4, every 5, etc. until i'm off. so, if weaning has no benefit, then i would rather just quit cold turkey for the millionth time ;) anyone with experience with this, please let me know!

thank you
