Hello, recently, about 2 months ago, I started having pretty bad breakouts and whatever I've done doesn't seem to help . I was prescribed mini cycline but after getting of it, my acne breakout got worse.

Yes..: You may need to stay on the minocycline chronically ( on adaily basis) to prevent the outbreaks. Some people need to do this for several months to years and then are able to stop it altogether

So see a doc: Acne is a common issue that some face well into their 30's & beyond. Having your skin evaluated by a doc or dermatologist can help you develop a plan for your particular breakout type. Understanding the role of these medications, both prescribed or not can help you get results.
