  1. Im taking 2 100mg pills of mino twice a day and was wondering how everyone else on antibiotics handles tanning beds? Does it burn the skin easily?
  2. Ive been on mino 100mg twice a day for 2 months now and it has cleared my face up about 80%. my back and shoulders are still developing cysts but they have improved since starting the medication. should i give mino more time to work for my back or should i see a derm about possibly getting accutane. i dont think a derm will prescribe me accutane because my face looks pretty clear however
  3. I am approaching the 2nd month of taking 2 100mg of mino pills a day and using klaron lotion twice also. I also use the ZNP bar and it really dries up pimples fast. I started clearing up from day one and I am almost clear. For anyone who has seen success with Mino, should I expect things to return to how they were before I started medication after my prescription runs out?
  4. Has anyone who has been on minocycline stayed clear after they stopped taking it? Ive been taking 200mg a day for about 2 1/2 weeks along with a topical sulfur lotion and my face has gone from having moderate acne to absolutely no active pimples...just red marks which are fading rapidly!! I look and feel so much better now but im already terrified of my acne returning when i stop in a few months. I know accutane does but do antibiotics make topicals more effective once you come off of them? Some
  5. For anyone who has taken or is taking Minocycline, how long was it until you saw results? Not perfectly clear but definitely beginning to clear up.
  6. my derm just prescribed me to take 2 100mg pills of minocycline...one in the mornin and one in the evening as well as applying 10% klaron lotion (which is sodium sulfacetamide, i think similar to tazorac). I am confident that the mino will help clear me up in a few months or so because my acne is only moderate, except over the last 1 1/2 months i have had pretty good success at limiting breakouts with dan's regimen. Nowhere near total clearing but only one or two new pimples a day. Should i cont

  8. Ive read from several people in this forum that using an AHA moisturizer causes them to break out. Is there any proof that this can occur and if so what in a noncomedogenic moisturizer would cause one to break out? It doesnt seem likely that it is the source of future breakouts.
  9. Its been 5 weeks since i started the regimen and my face is looking much better now. I am certain that my acne is responding to the BP treatment very well. I usually wake up to about 1-3 new little red spots now rather than 3-6 red and irritated ones. I know they will be pimples in a day or so but they also heal and begin fading within a day or two of surfacing, so its managable. Did anyone else experience this slowing down of active spots over the weeks and how long did it take to progress int
  10. Does anyone else suffer from their BP washing off and being very noticable when it rains or you sweat? I get white patches on my face from where it smears. Aren't we all screwed if we get caught in the rain? Maybe some of you long time users know a solution
  11. I've been reading a lot about the mandelic serum and it seems to be very affective for helping red marks to fade quicker. I was considering ordering the 10% serum but was wondering when and how i use it and how to incorporate it into the regimen effectively?
