First does the medication work? If not, then your next appt will be another drug trying to control acne.

Try cutting your dosage in half. The pills stay in your system for a few days and this will help prevent a resistnce build up.

umm i think what he means is if you're taking 2 pills a day, take 1 pill.. so you will have like double the pills that will last you longer. but if i were you i would call your doctor and get the secretary to reschedule your appointment.

don't mess with antibiotics. if you do you'll become immune.

call your doc or derm and get those extra pills! please! i didn't and i became immune to minocycline. doxycycline doesn't work nearly as well and i got my acne back and am scarring :(
