I was prescribed Doxycycline about 6 days ago, with a prescription of cylinmycin or something like that and I feel like I am just getting worse and more pimples just keep coming out. Its really depressing to just wait and see if I will ever see results on this medication. Can anyone please help?
This question has also been asked and answered here: How long does doxycycline take to work for acne?
Don't despair. It is common for acne to get a little worse initially. Please keep taking the doxycycline. Have you also been prescribed topical Clindamycin? If you have then please use this too. Studies have shown that combinations of oral and topical antibiotics work better than just one.
Unfortunately results are not always immediate. You should persist for at least 3 months. All the best.
