    Post Augmentin for acne

    I have just returned from the derm. She gave me an Rx for Augmentin (Amox.). I have been on many antibotics over the last 20 years for acne - but this is a new one for me. Anyone else taking this? Your comments please.

    I was on augmentin for another infection and it cleared my skin right up. I am in the process now of trying to find a Dr. who will prescribe it for acne. How many mg do you take per day and how many times?
    Thanks,
    Myqiue

    Myqiue, how long did it take for you to notice results?

    I had great skin on it for 3 months, then I started to break out worse, I got horrible, huge cysts - I've never had cystic acne. It wasn't worth it for the lousy three months.

    I was prescribed Augmentin a few times last year for sinus infections but I don't think I really noticed a difference in my skin.

    So how long? 2, 3 weeks, or longer?

    I'm on this too...it seems to be helping.. but I'm getting impatient.. my skin is totally destroyed. I too have strange acne on my neck??? What the heck is that, and why does it happen?

    Re: Augmentin for acne

    I've been on Augmentin 2 weeks for a sinus infection. Haven't noticed any diffference in my skin, although I am getting a rash on the back of my neck whhich I normally only get from wearing metal necklaces. Probably unrelated.

    It took a couple of months for me to see any difference in my skin. Then I was pretty clear (like 75%) for about three months after that.

    I take it back ... I think my skin might be a little more clear. Hard to say if it is the Augmentin, though, since I also started using a masque more often.

    Oh, for those wondering why Augmentin might work when other antibiotics don't, my allergist says that's because it's simply stonger. He said it's "the nest step up" from amoxycilin.
