Lymecycline Not Working?

2 posts in this topic

I have been on Lymecycline capsules for the past 9 weeks now. I have seen no improvements my skin has only got worse. I am also on the combined pill but with both medications i have seen no improvements in my skin. I have mild to moderate acne and my spots are very red. I wondered if anyone has seen results from Lymecycline?

How long will it take before i start seeing results?

Is there anything better than i can ask the doctor to prescribe me? Hopefully nothing that will dry my skin out and make it go flakey?

Please help thankyou.

I was on Lymecyline and Dianette at the same time for 8 months. Even with both these drugs combined it took at least 4 months to see an improvement and only after 6 months did they really kick in and make a noticeable difference.

It takes time, good luck :)
