  1. So ive been taking this for a little over 3 weeks now and it hasn't done anything! Is it supposed to take a while for it to work or should I move onto something else. I got acne when I was 18 and now i'm 21 and I still have it. It's not severe but its extremely annoying. I heard bactrim is the strongest there is second to Accutane. Do you all think I should wait a bit longer or move onto Accutane?
  2. I was takin 100mg of mino a day and that didnt work. i read about how bactrim has worked for a lot of people and I told my doc that I wanted it. She told me to take 1 pill a day (800mg). Is this enough? I just started yesterday...when will it get better? I HATE acne!!
  3. I was previously taking 100mg of minocycline daily, along with tretinoin 1% and erthromycin. I was on this for a while and nothing was happening. My acne was still mild. I went to the doctors a few days ago and she told me to take 200mg of minocycline a day for 2 weeks and then switch back to 100mg after the 2 weeks. My question is: Why is it 2 weeks and will it get better sometime in these 2 weeks? Will I experience a breakout during these 2 weeks? Thank you all..this is great forum!
  4. alright so i've been on tetracycline for a little over a month now (500mg twice a day) and it HASNT gotten better. It acutally looks like it might have gotten a bit worse. Should i stick it out or go see my doctor again!?! Please help!!
  5. My doc prescribed me some tetracycline (2 500mg pills a day) and she said that it will get worse before it starts to get better. And she was right, it has gotten a bit worse. Why is that?? Why does it get worse before it gets better? And does anyone know how long it will continue getting worse for. Ive been on it for 3 weeks.
  6. by the way, im taking 500mg 2 times a day. The pills are black and yellow and they say Z 2407 on them. It just says tetracycline on my prescription bottle
  7. Hi hows it going everyone... Alright, so my doc gave me tetracycline and ive been on it for a little over 2 weeks. So far, its gotten worse. How long can i expect it to be like this? its getting VERY annoying!! I bought this stuff to get rid of it, and its making it worse. Please help!
  8. So, this is my current regimin. I use Neutrogena Oil Free Acne Wash about twice a day and I fill up my sink with warm water and I put in some sea salt and i splash it around my face for a while and I submerge my face in it too for a little bit. I think its the sea salt, but after Ive been doing it I wake up with whiteheads. Is this a good thing? I go to bed and they arent there, I wash my face with the sea salt, and I wake up and Ive got whiteheads...what do you think?
  9. So I fill my sink up with hot water and i put some salt in and I submerge my head in the water for a while and i splash it around my face. And when I wake up in the morning, my pimples have turned into whiteheads. Is this supposed to happen? is it a good thing? Please HELP!!
  10. Ive read some things on the internet and people have said that they take 2 to 3 fish oil pills and that works on their acne. I went out and bought some fish oil and it says to take 1 a day. Ive been doing that for a little over a month now and my acne hasnt really gotten better. It says to take 1 a day but would it be harmful to take 2 to 3 a day? Maybe if i took 2 or 3 a day it'll work better on my acne.

  13. Ive started this last Friday so Ive been on it for 12 days. I broke out and I think I am still breaking out from it, when can I expect it to kick in? Does it take a few weeks?
  14. alright well, i started this up on Friday and today is Tuesday...so far ive been breaking out. Is this because everthing is rising to the top? When can I expect the breakouts to go away and the skin to start clearing up? Its clearing up a little bit but.... I use the SA and BP twice a day, in the morning and right before i go to bed. i also put on some neutrogena on the spot BP stuff when im done with the SA an BP things
  15. alright....well ive tried numerous things in the past and nothings worked. Ive spent HUNDREDS of dollars on everything dans, proactive, minocycline, etc. Ive got like 2 big ones and a few small ones so ive been pretty lucky with not getting the severe acne. Anyways, I went out and bought everything so todays my first day. I already put on the SA this morning so i'm about to go put the SA and the other stuff on right now...hopefully it works, i want my skin clear!! I'll log back on and tell you a
