In Reply to: does tetracycline work? posted by patrick on November 27, 2000 at 12:15:45:

Well, I am not sure about tetracycline; I only know that it is supposed to be stronger than minocycline, which I was on for a few months. Minocycline worked for me (when I was on it anyway). It definitely took a good amount of time before things got much better, but they did get better. That was about two years ago, and I am now 24, still looking for a solution to the problem. SO frustrating. Good luck.

: Hi, I would like to know if tetracycline works. I can't
: really tell. I have moderate acne everywheres, it's on
: my back, chest, arms, shoulders, butt etc...Basically I
: have tons of blackheads, it seems like one in every
: pore. How long do these things last, it seems like i've
: had the same blackheads for at least a year. It takes
: so long for them to reach the surface especially on my
: chest. I have taken tetracycline for 6 monthes, off for
: 4 and then on it for one year up until now. I don't get
: cysts(?) so I won't be going on accutane. My docter
: told me that i would have to take tetracycline on and
: off for 3-4 more years. I'm 23 now and I wonder whats
: going to happen when I turn 26-27 that is going to help
: me. I don't think it really works now so why 3-4 more
: years. Anyone have any advice?
