Acne is tricky and everyone is different. I spent most of my years between 16-25 on and off minocycline and tetracycline. Every time I came off it, I broke out again. Eventually I went on Accutane- which was a disaster for me. 9 months of the worst months of my life. Im in my 40s now and I still get breakouts occasionally. Ive been through every drug and laser surgery to control my sebaceous (oil) glands.
I would follow whatever protocol her derm has her on. More than likely, they will lower the dose of the antibiotic slowly. Either a lower dose pill each day, or possibly taking a pill every other day- just to see how she does. 17 is an age where the hormones are raging- and this is what is causing the breakouts.
If she stops cold turkey, she is likely to start breaking out worse.
For the record a low dose antibiotic like this isnt hurting her.
Good luck!
