Re: How long does minocycline take to work?

I saw results in about two weeks, granted it wasn't like i was totally clear but i could see a difference at the two week mark. I know because that's when i had to go back to the doctor and i remember him commenting that it looked better.

Minocycline takes 6-8 weeks to get the full effects....
Are you still breaking out or is the old acne not going away?

Re: How long does minocycline take to work?

I was just prescribed this medication today. Sort of surrpised an antibiotic would cure acne. My doctor said to take one pill per day-what prescription strength are you taking? Has anyone here had side effects such as being dizzy, etc.,? Do you know why you have chronic acne? For me it started with a decrease in hormones at menopause. I never had acne when I was a teenager.

I would have to say that the old acne just want go away. as far as getting more acne goes I do ok. I acutually got 100% clear one time while on the medication.That was about seven months ago. Then I went off of the medication and it came right back about two months later. Now I am back on it and it has been a month. I am taking 1oomg in the morning and at night. I am also using clearasil salicylic acid pads too(3 times a day).Thinks taape and Sableboo.

I Have had acne since I was 12 years old, now I am 19 years old.
My worst years were from the age of 14 to 16. I look like a two for one at pizza hut.( pepperoni toping of course)

Re: How long does minocycline take to work?

Your welcome. My neices and nephews are your age and they seem to be growing out of having acne. Hopefully you will too.
