Reviews for Tetracycline
For Acne: "I've been on Tetracycline for about 10 months. I tried different face cleaners, than went on to topicals including TAC2O. But nothing worked. I started this and my acne did start to clear up, acne on my chest went away completely, back acne was almost gone and my face was 10x better than it was before. The only problem for me was, that even though my acne wasn't terrible around my period I would spike dramatically, and my entire face would break out. But for the most part my face did stay mediocre. Having between 4-7 spots rather than my 15-20"

For Acne: "I'm 16 and it worked wonders! Treated my chest, back acne and especially the acne on my forehead! Still get one or two pimples on my face, but still looks just like it did when I was little kid. Didn't really treat it on my chin. All in all looks good. Although it delayed my period for a month and a half, and I've been on it for a month and a half, apparently a lot of antibiotics do that. Gonna go ask my doctor about that on my next appointment."

For Acne: "I used tetracycline hydrochloride ointment together with betamethasone valerate for the terrible breakout I experienced last year (based on Doctor's prescription). I must say that the combination worked well for my acne except that my face became very fair, almost white ( I am black by the way) and the acne scars became very conspicuous. I was advised to stop the treatment by my Doctor. My face returned back to normal after a while and the scar disappeared almost completely. Unfortunately the breakout is back and I am planning to go back to this treatment as every other regime isn't giving the desired result."

For Acne: "I was on Tetracycline for my mild acne for 3 months and the results where absolutely amazing. I couldn't believe how good my face was getting. If i had a bad breakout it would only take 3 days for that breakout to leave because of Tetracycline. I've been off it for a month now and unfortunately my clear skin was as clear i started to breakout after i stopped but it was as bad as my acne was 4 months before treatment. At the moment i'm on Retin A but might be moving over to Accutane if topical does not succeed. For anyone who is scared for Tetracycline. Done be, the side effects are very mild and are nothing close to what they say the symptoms are. Best of luck too anyone trying this for the first time."

For Acne: "Have been taking 500 mg twice per day for 15 years. Works great. If I miss a two doses I begin to have problems right away. I do worry about staying on it for so long but my doctors says not to worry. I am 53."

For Acne: "I was prescribed tetracycline for acne by doctor, next day of taking the drug I started to develop diarrhea and headaches, I had it for one week and I was so down, I could not focus, dizziness, stomach problems, vision problems, depression, and more then decided to stop, I went to see the doctor and get my blood test done, thinking that is somthing wrong with my body as doctor never told me such a side effects if i am allergic to the drug or not, Blood resuts showed the neutrophil cells are very low, I was worried, after that doctor asked me to repeat the test after a week, and results shows the white cells started to pick-up, well after I done research on this site I found that YES tetraycline type of drug is causing many problems to blood count."

For Acne: "Tetracycline was a miracle for me. I've had severe acne for 7 years and tried every medicine on the market, most of them made me sick or didn't work. I'm now 99% acne free. It is weird to wake up and not see a cyst or pimple on my face every day. I just hope it stays like this forever."

For Acne: "I have been taking this for over a year, recently I was late picking up my prescription and after a couple of days, I noticed the difference that it makes, it does not get rid completely of my fairly mild acne, but it stops it feeling as sore and I only have spots now around the area of my face that is particularly bad (around my mouth). I have not experienced any side effects."
