Ive been using Minocycline and Retin A for about 8 months now, the results are alright, dont think of it as a cure for acne, it still is there, i get pimples here and there but not as much as i used to. it does stop them from becoming big and coming to the surface, but i have lots of red spots and blemishes that it doesnt help with. But go ahead and get that prescription, its worth it.
