Hi! I have been taking Minocyline 50mg twice a day once in the evening once at night for about 10 weeks now. It has only gotten worse. When I first started off I had very minor acne, maybe 2-3 active pimples at a time that weren't really noticeable (these were just on the corner of my mouth and chin, I also had a few under the skin blemishes that only I could really see but not more than 1-2 at a time. My doctor went ahead and prescribed me this medication. After taking it for 10 weeks now, I have about 10 or so active pimples now on the sides of my face and around my mouth and chin. I was wondering if any has taken minocycline and has has similar results. I am also considering on stoping the medicine all together as it only seems to have gotten worse since I first started taken it. I want to know if anyone has taken the medicine and it made it better eventually. I know it says about 6-8 weeks to start working but it still hasn't seemed to "start" working yet. Please Help! thanks.
