Tetracycline doses?

Recommended Posts

I've been on Dan's regimen for 2 months now, and it works great..but I still get occasional cystic acne on my cheeks and forehead that the regimen doesn't seem to help against. I went to my doctor and had him prescribe some Tetracycline, as I've used it in the past and it seemed to work. He prescribed 250mg capsules, to take 1 a day. Now, this struck me as odd, as I quite distinctly remember taking 2 doses a day, with 2 pills each about 3 years ago when I first took the medication. I don't remember the pill size though. I did some internet research, and I've found that the usual dosage for acne is 500mg or 1g a day...

I'm thinking about calling the doctor to ask, but I wanted to guage your opinions first.
