Hi, I'm 21 and have started Minocycline 2 weeks ago (50mg twice a day). I've noticed no side effects , except in the first week I noticed 1 or 2 pimples that comes to a white head, so that was no trouble. But right now, it's the end of my second week and I noticed a big cystic pimple right on the middle of my chin. In the past I've already had this type of pimple but this one is worrying me because I'm on the mino, and it's supposed to clear things up ??? Is that part of the initial breakout that some users are talking about ? I don't understand and don't know what to do. Have anyone had a similar experience ?
Usually your acne will get bad before it gets better. So just bear with it a little bit and see ... it should clear it up in some time.
