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?
How long does doxycycline take to work for acne?

Doxycycline is a tetracycline antibiotic which is used to treat acne.
It is antibacterial and anti-inflammatory and helps if inflamed pimples have not responded well to topical acne antibiotics or if you have acne on many areas of your body.
A low dose is recommended and generally it is well tolerated.
Acne takes time to treat and you can expect to take doxycycline anywhere from 3 to 6 months.
