hey everyone, last summer I had pretty bad acne and I remember my dermatologist prescribing me minocycline. I took one 50 mg pill everyday for about a week. After that I was clear the whole summer, I only got a few blackheads. I'm thinking of asking my dermatologist if I can use it again, and just wanted to know if anyone else had any good results with it.

Any help would be appreciated.
I just got a perscription of Minocyclne 100mg and twice a day. Hopefully it will make a difference.
I been on it 3 times 100 mg 2 times a day. I just got another script for it and will start it when I run out of doryx next week. I have been on antibiotics for over a year now and every six months or so my derm switches me to another one he says he likes to mix his antibiotics up.
Has your face stayed clear after all those rounds of antibiotics?? Because minocycline lasted about 7 months with me and then I had really bad breakouts. I also used Benzamycin and tazorac gel, and still do which may have helped.

When I see my derm on tuesday, I'm gonna ask him if i could get more minocycline...
You took a 50mg pill each day for a week and it cleared up that quick? I thought antibiotics took about 2 moths to have some effect on acne. I'm taking Minocycline and I've been on it for 3 weeks now. Although it hasn't had any affect as yet, hopefully when I hit the two month mark it will. Fingers crossed*

The first time I was on it I saw results within a few weeks and was taken off it after about 3 months. But then I broke out again a few months after being off it so I was put back on it. But this time it took about 6 months to see results and they weren't as notciable. I was taken off it because He thought I was having an allergic reaction which he has since decided it wasn't. I was put back on it last June after being on doxycycline for 3 months. you can't take doxycycline in the summer becasue you become too sensitive to the sun.I was on it until around october when i was put on doryx which is brand name doxycycline. And since summer is coming again he has switched me back. My face is pretty clear a few here and there but my back is still really breaking out that is why I am still on it.
I've been on Minocycline for a week now and I haven't seen any results. I have heard from some people that it takes a couple of weeks, and others that it starts working immediately, so I don't know what to think! In the last couple of days I've broken out with two more cysts and a whitehead so...I'm waiting patiently...

Can anyone tell me anything else about Minocycline? How long did it take to work for everyone else? I'm on 100 mg.
