To be totally honest with you a ten day dose will not show much if any improvement.
Acne responds very slowly to antibiotics and in my case i waited around two months before i noticed any improvement.
Minocin was not a cure for me but it has helped alot.
I am coming up to six months on the stuff and i am expecting my doctor to gradually take me off it now.
I suspect that your doctor has given you a short supply so he or she can see how you react to the stuff.
Or maybe you have some infected spots and this will help with the infection?
Goodluck with the Mino and ask you doctor to put you on it for a few months so you can give it time to work.
