Depends on meds: Usually the information from the pharmacist when you pick up the antibiotic prescription will indicate what you can and cannot take with your medication.

Yes: There are better antibiotics for acne; especially, antibiotics should never be sole therapy. I see that you also have scarring. This should not be happening to you.
