i have been taking tetracycline for a month now and i have only taken one per day and it says i should take 2 twice daily, should i start doing what it says ? or get a new prescription ???
Since you have already taken this on a daily basis for a good length of time one way or the other since from what I read seems to indicate this is for Acne I woudl jsut be sure and inform the prescribing physician without knowing your history probably the worst that has happened it may not have been the dose your bodt needed one thing I wonder how has your acne responded? if you can post and let us know otherwise just be sure the doctor is aware of this, Do you recall the milligram dose? Be safe and I wish you only the very best
I guess I have a question more than an answer. Has it helped your acne taking one a day? If your answer is no, than you should be taking the prescribed dose. Call your doctor & explain you made an error, & I am sure they will give you a new script, & please read directions completly about not eating 2 hours before or after taking the medicine etc... Makes a huge difference. Hope this helps...
