Hey,
Do ya mean the antibiotics?

Oxytetracycline:
I was on it for about 3 months and it gave me a bit of an improvement but not major. I can't remember having that many side effects with it to be honest and I don't think I had an initial breakout.

Erythromycin:
This one worked a lot better but also made me feel a lot worse. I took it for about 4 months and I think I noticed results about the 2 month mark but I just felt it was messing me up.
I was always always always hungry. I used to get some pains in my side sometimes (and still do). I just felt 'down' in the general sense... it was kinda just like it knocked something out of me while I took them. I was also just worried about taking any antibiotics for too long.

I would love to have the effects of it back without the side effects! I guess thats the balance you have to deal with! I think if you think of it as a 10-point scale (10 being worst)... I went from a 5/6 to a 2/3 which was a big jump for me but I didn't appreciate it at the time because it was gradual.

Let me know how you get on!

Dave
