ok, I was on doxycycline for like almost two months, im pretty much clear now though but I finished my prescription. I get a pimple or two every week though. Anyway, I know that if I use the doxycycline for too long I'll build up a resistance to it and its just not recommended in general. If I stay off the doxycycline will the acne come back as bad as before?

i just started taking doxycycline about two weeks ago and it seems to be working pretty good. i have a few red spots that are trying to heal. my opinion is that if the stuff is working keeping taking it until it stops working. doctors have about fifty other antibiotics they can give you if you get sick. if you stop taking it, your acne will come back. my plan is to stick to it until it stops working, which i figure will be a year or so.

I was prescribed Doxycycline a few years ago for 3 months. It's rubbish, I don't remember if there was improvement, but it came back again, maybe worse. Antibiotics are overprescribed.
