    Exclamation Doxycycline: 4 Past/Present Users ONLY!

    Hi, I have been on Doxy for 17 days now. My skin has not changed a bit..I was wondering for people that are on or have been on doxy how long it took them to see results or to not see results..
    And if you had an initial breakout and how long did it take for the initital breakout to occur? And how bad was your acne before you were on doxy?
    Please reply only with personal experiences.
    Thank you,
    Steve

    My daughter started Doxycycline last July, a little over a year ago. She started it along with Duac and Tazorac. She had no initial breakout at all. I would say she saw a difference in about 2 weeks. The ones she had cleared up quickly and it really helped prevent any new breakouts. This has kept her 90% clear for a year. She is starting to breakout a little again...I think maybe she is starting to become immune to the Doxy. She's going back to the derm next Wednesday. Her acne has always been mild/moderate, but very persistant.

    Hang in there...lots of people say it takes longer for the antibiotic to kick in. Maybe my daughter was just lucky.

    hi steve- i went to the dermatologist on Friday...started Doxy that day...4 days so far and, if anything, my skin looks worse. i had a horrible breakout right after i started it. who knows of there's any true correlation, but i'll definitely keep you posted.

    My acne was always mild. Mild as in, if i type ''mild acne'' into a google picture search the results that come up are WAY worse. None the less still persistent, upsetting and depressing...

    I've been on doxy a few days under 6 weeks and my skin is the best it has ever been right now. I still get a little spot now and again, but nothing to worry about and its usually gone by the next day.

    The innitial break out i suffered had started and finished during the 3rd week. My skin was awful at that point, but like i said, within a week it was all gone. By week 4 my skin was looking much better and now week 5 even better still!

    They only thing annoying me is those little red/brown marks left over, but they're fading.... slowly... but at least fading!

    You haven't even been using it for a month. You really need to stick it out and be patient. I know it is hard but I did and by the 2nd month about week 2 I really started noticing I wasn't getting any more pimples. I was still in my breakout phase at 17 days. I have mild acne as well. But Doxy is great it has given me so much more confidence and now the scars are getting a chance to heal because I am not getting any more pimples and if I do they are really small like a little whitehead that lasts one day.

    jadetree, I started Yasmin right along with the Doxy. Now I can't figure out which one made me clear but all I know is I think my acne was hormonal so I think it is more the Yasmin than anything. I really love Yasmin!
