I was just wondering how long you need to be off Accutane before you can start up on Minocycline? I'm on Minocycline 100mgs 2 times a day and have almost completed a months worth. So far I haven't seen much of a result. How long does it usually take for the antibiodics to "kick in"?
Also, I finished a cycle of low dosages of accutane about 6-8 weeks ago. I stayed on it for about 4 months and it worked really well. However, I never get the long-term results that some people are talking about. I've done about 5 cycles of low dosases (20mgs) of accutane within the past 4 years. My results are great on the drug, but about a month or so off it my skin goes back to being oily and flushed. I'm getting nervous about continuing with my endless cycles on Accutane because I don't know if it's healthy or not. Is a person more prone to side-effects the more the more cycles they have on the drug? Is it safe and wise to continue doing a cycle of accutane every year or so? Would 5mgs a day do anything for acne and redness?
