Some people may have to used a maintenance dose of this type of antibiotic for preventing acne outbreak. You can retake this medication intermittently if you wish when you have an outbreak. Remember to avoid prolonged sun exposure and watch for common side effects such as diarrhea, urogenital yeast infection.
