I've been on Doxy & Benzaclin for over a year and a 1/2 now and my face looks 95% better than it did before I started. I'm EXTREMELY happy with the results. The ONLY thing that I'm still not happy about is the scarring, which I just can't seem to get rid of (any suggestions?). I take 100 mg of Doxy a day and only use the Benzaclin (it really does help with the redness) at night. As with any medication, you have to give it some time. Try giving it a few months and see what happens; whatever happens, it's NOT going to happen overnight.

Can anyone tell me their experience with these medications and how long I should give it. im really contemplating accutane if this stuff doesnt work soon.
