For Acne: "Have been taking 500 mg twice per day for 15 years. Works great. If I miss a two doses I begin to have problems right away. I do worry about staying on it for so long but my doctors says not to worry. I am 53."

For Acne: "I was prescribed tetracycline for acne by doctor, next day of taking the drug I started to develop diarrhea and headaches, I had it for one week and I was so down, I could not focus, dizziness, stomach problems, vision problems, depression, and more then decided to stop, I went to see the doctor and get my blood test done, thinking that is somthing wrong with my body as doctor never told me such a side effects if i am allergic to the drug or not, Blood resuts showed the neutrophil cells are very low, I was worried, after that doctor asked me to repeat the test after a week, and results shows the white cells started to pick-up, well after I done research on this site I found that YES tetraycline type of drug is causing many problems to blood count."

For Acne: "Tetracycline was a miracle for me. I've had severe acne for 7 years and tried every medicine on the market, most of them made me sick or didn't work. I'm now 99% acne free. It is weird to wake up and not see a cyst or pimple on my face every day. I just hope it stays like this forever."

For Acne: "I have been taking this for over a year, recently I was late picking up my prescription and after a couple of days, I noticed the difference that it makes, it does not get rid completely of my fairly mild acne, but it stops it feeling as sore and I only have spots now around the area of my face that is particularly bad (around my mouth). I have not experienced any side effects."

For Acne: "Worked great, but didn't like the limitation imposed on eating. Once you develop a routine though, its totally worth it. Experienced minor side effects, but nothing bad."
