Talk to your doctor.

Yep, it probably will come back. And if you keep starting and stopping and restarting antibiotics, that drug will become not as effective in treating the acne or an infection (if you went back on the same med for an infection).

Sadly, the most likely answer is yes. And I speak from experience.

There are some exceptions however, your acne phase may well have "passed over" since you began the course of treatment.

It's not all doom though, as there are many antibiotic alternatives (other tertracyclines for example) that can easily get you through a long period of time. And if you're lucky, during this period, acne will leave you for good.
