An oral anti-biotic alone isn't going to clear you. I hope you're also using some sort of prescription topicals for your acne along with an oral antibiotic.

Anti-Biotics work by curbing the bodys' production of bacteria. Bacteria stuck in the pores is what causes a pimple to form in most cases.

How long have you been on Minocycline? It takes about a month to start seeing improvement and 2 months to see dramatic changes.

I've been on Minocycline--and it worked wonders--but I had to get off so I was put on Doxcycline, which is in the same family as Minocycline (Tetracyclines) so It works for me. Erythromycin might work for you, but first give Minocycline a chance.

Retin-A, Duac, and Doxycycline worked for me! Don't quit your regimen in the early stages if your acne gets worse and your face is irritated; this is the worst thing you could do! Trust me, my skin was iritated in the early stages, but now 6 weeks later it's perfect with no irritation and only 2 pimples! Don't be a wuss. How bad do you want to be clear?
