Post Question on antibiotic timeframe???

Im on the antibiotic Minocycline and I was wondering if its safe to take it for as long as you want. Or does it have a certain time when you need to stop the medicine. I know Accutane you have to stop between 5 - 6 month of treatment, but wasnt sure of mino. If there is a timeframe is it safe to go right to another antibiotic such as Doxycycline, because I dont know what the heck I would do to stay clear if i had to stop antibiotics all together. I'm hoping that there isnt a timeframe because to me it would just seem like a big waste of time if you had to just stop the treatment that has been keeping you clear. Thank You.

I have been on Tetracyclin for about 2 years now... it has really reduced my breakouts.. I noticed I stopped for a month and I broke out I am pretty sure you can stay on it for a while unless you have serious medical problems.

On mine 3 weeks, and hope not be on 4 ever. My derm said she would switch me to a topical once it's under control.
