    Yasmin and doxycycline?

    About three months ago, my dermo put me on doxy for my cystic acne, along with Tretinoin Topical, and BenzaClin, they worked great! The Retin A worked like a charm until the doxy kicked in, I was so happy, I've had really painful cyctic acne for a while now, and it amazed me how much more confident I was with the clearer skin, and no painful zits. So, about a month ago I decided to go on Yasmin for BC, and then all the acne came back along with some other serious side effects. So I stopped taking the Yasmin (was seriously not worth it, I've got issues w depression, it made it a lot worse, lost my sex drive, and I was starting to feel like my life was kinda worthless.) So, I stopped the BC, but the cystic acne is back! Does anyone know if the Doxy is going to work again once everything kinda settles out, or should I just go back to my Dermo and go on Accutane?

    Re: Yasmin and doxycycline?

    i recommend staying on birth control and the minacin i took helped but i had alot of yeast buildup from years of the antibiotic. yasmin works for alot of people but their are some sites that tell you what type of pill helps certain problems. most help cystic and some don't. we all struggle with this same problem and really there is no 100% solution. experiment with what works. hope this helps you
