TIRED ON TETRACYCLINE

Recommended Posts

Can anyone answer if they've been on tetracycline... I have been on 250mg. 3x/day for about 2 weeks now and OHMYGOSH am I tired!!!! All the time!!!!!!!! Is this a side-effect anyone else has experienced??? Also, I was curious about whether or not my acne will come back once I finish the meds??? The tetracycline seems like a temporary fix. I have noticed in these two weeks that the acne has cleared almostcompletely, BUT won't it come back after the month that I am prescribed it is over????

I'm on 250 mg 2x/day and have been on it for almost 4 weeks now. And let me tell you, I've been more tired then I have ever been since using Tetra. I feel so sleep deprived even after 10 hours of sleep. I haven't broken out in any cysts since being put on it, but I have had a few small breakouts (which I figure is from the Retin-A). I'm not sure if acne will come back once you go off of it. I'm curious about that too...

I've been on Tetrex, 250Mg, 2x daily for 12 months. I'm getting off it in the next month or so, i'll let you know if i break out. I'm planning on stepping down the dosage slowly so as to avoid breakouts as best i can.

I haven't really thought alot about it but i do get quite drained at times, sometimes there is good reason for it however! I'm not entirely sure if this is a side effect, i don't recall reading anything about fatigue on the drug information sheet. :think:

healthy lifestyle ..

Is that some sort of rude passing comment? It's a bit ignorant to assume that we're not, don't you think.

I can't speak for the others but i'm very healthy. I exercise daily, i eat an almost flawless diet and i attend yoga & meditation classes weekly.
