Tetracycline

So I was just given Tetracycline for my acne. I can't beleive all the rules with taking this stuff. No eating for hours before and after, take 12 hours apart, no dairy for hours before and after taking, can't lay down for 30 minutes after taking. Now I understand why, I just can't figure out how to schedule it. I wake at 8am and usually have cereal with milk. I will have to wait 2-3 hours before I can take the pill which would make it 10 - 11:00. I go to bed at night at 10. If I wait 12 hours and then take it at 10 I can't lay down for 30 minutes so I will have to stay up. Grrr I also wanted to have a snack tonight but was not able to because it was to close to the med. time. Plus taking this on an empty stomach has caused some yucky nausea.

I guess I am just venting I don't know if anyone would have any advice for me.

Re: Tetracycline

Hey, maybe you should ask your derm about switching to doxycycline. You can take it with food.

Re: Tetracycline

I stopped taking it for that exact reason.All the rules.However,I took 2 pills at night before bed,so it wasn't as severe.
