Has anyone had any long-term success with doxycycline? My experience was that I took it, it worked and then my acne came back - maybe even stronger than before. Has anyone got clear and STAYED clear on doxycycline cos I'm thinking about maybe going to get more antibiotics but I'm not sure.

Any thoughts appreciated. biggrin.gif

I've been on Doxy over a year now... it's worked alright (I've been on the regimen at the same time, I still get new acne) but unfortunately I'm planning on moving on to Accutane.

If Doxy worked how come you need to go onto Accutane now?

At the moment I'm so disillusioned with everything - the regimen kinda worked but made my skin too dry, antibiotics worked for a bit and then my acne came back. Vitamin E and zinc has worked a bit tho. Its quite a good combination.

But yeah... how come you're considering accutane?
