I have had acne ever since I was 13 and I'm now 29. I've been on everything from accutane to creams... Last year my doctor put me on Doryx and I LOVED it, however, I was worried about how long I could be on it. I was on it for about 6 months and quit but my face started flaring with zits. Does anyone take this medication continually to keep acne from not flaring up?
You can take this medication for as long as your system does not work up a resistance to it, so it may be that you could be on it for as long as your acne is a problem and to have clear skin... I would speak with a dermatologist at lengths about this problem, your outlook and what goal you are reaching for with this bothersome med condition that so many face and other things that you can do to lessen the breakouts. Foods, drinks, makeup if a girl, and all anti allergy and non greasy topical solutions... It may even take a specialist... Hope this was helpful... blaze22 get back with us if any further questions... welcome
