Discussions that mention benzaclin

Acne board


I have been taking doxy since 5/03 and my face looks good! I was also using Benzaclin, which I no longer use, and I also use St. Ives Medicated Apricot Scrub and Neutragena face wash made specifically for acne and wrinkles. I also use an at home microdermabrasion kit once a week for the scarring. My face is completely clear except for the blotchiness, which I just can't seem to shake. Don't get me wrong, I still get pimples; just not at that severity anymore. I also take a B Complex vitamin which has helped.

[QUOTE=west virginia girl]Wondering if anyone has took Doxycycl 100mg for their acne and what type of results you had?

So you've been on doxy for a year and a half? Are you worried at all about the negative effects of being on an antibiotic for a long period of time? I've been using doxy for about 4 and a half months, and i've read some posts from people saying it can be harmful. My doctor hasn't mentioned this though and I have lots of refills left on my perscription. Have you discussed this with your doctor at all?
