Anyone else here tried Erythromycin?

I've been on it for a while, though to be honest it hasn't really helped. I know there is a gel available which is an Erythromycin/Benzoyl Peroxide combo, but does anyone know if it's okay to take Erythromycin tablets (500mg per day) while applying a 2.5% Benzoyl Peroxide cream?

Yeah it should be fine.

I've tried Erythromycin (sp?) the pill and the topical. It kinda cleared me up but then when I stopped taking it, the acne came back. As for the topical, it didn't really help.

Cool, thanks for the help guys. I don't know if I really want to stay on the Erythromycin as it hasn't helped much but I also don't want to stop taking it without the doctor's say so.

It worked great until my body developed a tolerance to it.

Hey all. I tried the erythromycin/bp gel for my face. It was such a pain and never really worked for me. It had to be refrigerated and I travel a lot so it was really a super pain to use. My acne was never really controlled with it and as soon as I stopped using it, I broke out worse than before!!!!! I'm sure it works for some, but for those of us with really stubborn persistant acne, it's not strong enough. The Doryx pill 100mg/once a day works really well for all types of acne. Look into it. Good Luck!
