Minocycline, Plexion, and Differin Musings

Recommended Posts

My God this Minocycline stuff is potent. Apparently it is very expensive, but I have insurance, so I do not care. I take this twice daily, 100mg

The Plexion TS is harsh and smells bad due to it being sulfur, but you can feel this stuff. Applied once in the morning.

The differin seems the most mild of the bunch. I am not sure it is doing anything. Applied at bedtime. It absorbs into the skin nicely, which I like.

Overall, the three are doing something right, a patch of stubborn acne is starting to die and scab/peel away.

minocycline works for me, too. I am on 200 mg per day. Tetracycline did nothing for me because I became immune to its effects. Try to take some vitamin C while on Minocycline. It will reduce the chances of the blue tint that some folks get in thier gums and teeth. It is very uncommon, but who wants to take a chance?
