My last question about Minocin

Recommended Posts

Guest

Does Minocin have the potential to make your acne worse before it gets better? What happened in the 2nd-3rd weeks was that EVERYTHING on my face dried up and the bigger one's slowly dried up but they took longer. However, I kept breaking out, so my face was a mess. I'm 7 weeks in now and things seem to be SLOWLY improving but I don't know if this medication is really going to do what I want it to. I'm giving it 9 weeks before considering other options

if you have any information to provide whatsoever I would be grateful, thanks.

Minocycline seemed to pretty immediately start working for me. I was on it like a month or two and I don't remember any initial breakout but I'm always breaking out so if I got one I probably didn't notice. I did see subtle improvement but it's definately not a cure.

Gave me headaches for a while, then I got hives so I'm off now.
