  1. Long story short- I’ve been on bactrim for 4 years. It has been a wonder drug for my acne. I realise I can’t be on antibiotics long term so I need to get off. Problem is that even with slight weining of Bactrim I have huge breakouts. How the hell do I break this antibiotic cycle? Thanks

It can’t be good, even though my dermatologist is happy enough for me to stay on them.

I have a number of other skin, hair and anxiety problems and I'm concerned it's all coming from within. So im thinking it really is time to try and get off them again (my skin goes so bad I have to get back on) but I have no plan. Is there somethi
