Biaxin gets rid of my acne 100%

Just letting you guys know what works for me...

I usually have 7-20 blemishes on my face and get 1-3 new pimples a day.. so im usually pretty horrible if I'd say so... nothing works for me (do I have to list?) I havent tried the aspirin mask, I was about to but I just decided to go on biaxin again.

It's an anti-biotic(clarithromycin) and the first time I took it was a year ago to help a throat infection/flu... the dr said it would clear up my acne too (I was thinking "yeah right") he didnt tell me I wouldn't have another pimple for 4 months though.

as soon as I started taking it my face began to clear.. by 1 week I was totally clear up until I was finished the biaxin (1 month) and the subsequent 3 months afterwards I was totally clear... after about 3 months I slowly started going back to my usual self... up until 5 days ago when I started taking biaxin again, im totally clear again now.

so yeah, I guess depending on the type of acne you get this might work wonders for you.. side effects are low (I dont get any but he said it might give you an upset stomach) its pretty pricey though, so unless you have a drug plan be ready to pay $200US/$250CA for a month's worth.

take care.

Re: Biaxin gets rid of my acne 100%

By the way... it was 500mg twice daily... but I only took it at 500mg for 10 days or so (to get rid of the throat infection) and then started cutting them in half for the acne (twice daily) so im sure at 250mg it works too... especially considering how fast it works and how long it lasts afterwards, not to mention im a big guy.
