Hello
I have been on minocycline for 5 weeks now. The first 5 weeks I was taking 200 mg a day, and am now down to 100 mg a day for the next 4 weeks...cutting down to 50 mg every other day for another 4 weeks. I also use Differin Gel each night. 2 Months ago I broke out with 5 cysts on my chin, clear everywhere else. Since then I have not broken out with any more cysts. But I am getting pimples on the chin area still although they go away within 1-2 days.
Has anyone done this regime Mino\Differin? What were your results? Did you taper off the Mino and continue on with Differin? I hear horror stories about people breaking out worse after finishing their Minocycline course....what was your experience? I've also started Omega 3 fish oil pills 1 week ago....how did they work for you?
Thanks for your time!
