My doctor prescribed me minocycline after a bad breakout of cystic acne in my right and left jawline never had broken out so bad specially with cystic acne. It's been 2 months and my cystic acne hasn't improved and I've been on minocycline for 2 weeks now. It's itchy and can't stand it anymore. They also gave me ortha tri cyclen lo as birth control pills. Did I mention I have always suffered of acne since I was 15 I'm 23 now and it's a lot worse.
