well, for me it worked immediately. I took it for a year.
For six months I stayed completely clear, and the last six months only had very minor breakouts

Re: does minocycline make you break out before it helps?

I've been taking it for a month now and it's done wonders for my skin. I haven't had any cysts or pustiles like I used to anymore. Now, I'm contemplating of going off it because you can't stay on antibiotics for long but I don't know what to treat my skin with so my acne won't come back.
