I got a prescription from the doc and when I picked up the Erythromycin from the pharmacy it says the dosage (on sticker on bottle) is: one 250mg tablet, four times a day.
This sound right for those who have taken Erythro before?
I was on Minocycline for 7 months which did make me breakout far less than when I started. However I was getting lots of little red marks below the surface of pimples that had come to surface and then gone down below and remained there, aswell as little spots that never broke the surface but were somewhat visible. Basically I feel the Mino slowed down the time and amount of spots that came up but also made it hard for existing spots to heal and go down.
I never used to get this years ago and found this strange as I would get 1 -3 big spots in an area where as now I get 1 big spot and 3 little ones around it just below the surface. So since I had been taking a higher dosage of mino for 7 months, which was usually 100mg a day (one tablet) but sometimes 200mg a day for a week or two if I had a breakout, the doc thought that maybe I should try Erythro aswell as some Dalacin T topical.
I tried the Dalacin T for 1 week and remained on Mino. Nothing really changed so started to take Erythro and Dalacin T today and cut out Mino. The doc warned that there wouldn't be a problem with my bodys system by switching so drastically. I just wan't to make sure the dosage is correct.
If this S*** don't work Im going back on Accutane........to bad cause I like my alchohol once in a while.
Thoughts?????? Many thanks.......
