I have been on doxycycline 100 mg twice daily for just about a month and I would say a good amount of my acne has been cleared up, but my question is whether this medicine first needs to push out all the junk in your pores before your skin becomes clear? has anyone else experienced this and about how long did it take before your acne was compeletely clear?

When taking doxycycline, it can sometimes take between 3 to 6 months before your acne will totally clear up.
I haven't taken it myself but the link below has reviews made by people who have used it. You may find it useful.
