Minocycline and Differin(adapalene gel)

Recommended Posts

My doctor prescribed me to a drug called Minocycline. I take 2 50mg pills daily. He also prescribed me a gel called Differin(adapalene gel).

I have been on it since wednesday of last week. My doctor wants to see me in 6 weeks again. Anyway I think it has done some minor results but my question is when will I be seeing the more noticable results?

Also, if this doesn't work, what do you think my doctor will want to do next? Prescribe accutane?

You sound alot like me with your meds...my doc just prescribed me 100mg/day of Doxycycline and .1 Differin gel. Stick with it and wait a few weeks to a month for results. I think that most people see results by a month, but some take 2-3 months and some won't see results at all. Since you are only a week in, it could get worse within the next week or two before it gets better. Stick with it.

If this doesn't work, he will probably play around with other antibiotics, and higher doses. He may switch you from differin to retin-a ect...

It'll probably be a few months before accutane comes into the picture.
