Discussions that mention tetracycline

PS. I know there are certain drugs you're not supposed to take while on Accutane (e.g. Vitamin A supplements, certain antibiotics like the tetracyclines, "mini-pill" progesterone preparations, phenytoin possibly, and steroids should be used with caution.)

But are you sure you can't take an over-the-counter steroid-free decongestant like AFRIN 12-hour spray? That would help you. It doesn't just decongest the nasal passages but also can help fluid congestion in the ear.

Hey, well I went to the doctor and apparntly I have a nasty ear infection. He gave me an antibioticcalled amoxcillin.

I told him Im on accutanne and he said its ok. I also told my pharmisit im on accutane, and he said as long as your not taking tetracycline I should be fine.
