Post Ampicillin

Just wondering if anyone has tried this antibiotic?? What did you think?? I was sick of being on topicals that have so much photosensitivity so my dermatologist prescribed ampicillin. So far, it seems to be drying some stuff up.

Thumbs up

I used ampicillin for about 6 months & it cleared up my face. It took about 2 weeks for it to actually kick in, & initially it dried out my face a bit but I guess it was my body adjusting. My derma told me it was gonna get worse before it gets better and she was right. Overall though- I'd recommend ampicillin.
