Can I take antibiotic 'vibramycin for example' for acne with biotin 10, 000?

Why the biotin? Who's told you to take biotin? Take an antibiotic for acne only on a physician's advice and NEVER as the sole treatment, only as an adjunct to topical benzoyl peroxide or retinoic acid or salicylic acid. Acne is serious business especially now that you're getting older. You'll need guidance from your own physician here. Read more...

I was prescribed doxycycline 50mg once a day for mild acne but I read the reviews and side effects of it and im scared. Advice needed please.?

Doxycycline. Doxycycline is one of the first line, and quite safe medications for acne. The dose you're on is too low, but using it is the appropriate next step when topical treatment fails. Stay in touch with your doctor about your concerns, and follow treatment instructions carefully. Read more...
Always Side Effects. All medications carry risk for side effects. The most common side effect with Doxycycline is upset stomach. While other side effects (some dangerous, some just annoying) can occur, it's fairly difficult at present to predict who will have them and how bad they might be. The only way to find out is to try the medicine. You have to decide if the fear of side effects outweighs the fear of acne. Read more...

How strong is doxycycline 50mg? How likely will I get side effects? I just took mybfirst tablet today for my mild acne. I am scared. Please help?

Relax. This is the sort of question you're best to discuss with your physician. The worst you can expect from Doxycycline is a bit of diarrhea and maybe (probably not) a yeast infection. If this happens, there are other options. It's a good choice for acne; you can continue using topical benzoyl peroxide as well. Read more...

I had bad side effects on doxyxycline. I was prescribed Doryx (doxycycline) 150 mg for acne. Since it is delayed released would the symptoms be milder?

Depends. If it was a stomach side effect (cramps, diarrhea) possibly. However, skin reactions like severe sunburns,etc should not be affected by a delayed release. Allergic reactions would also not be affected to any degree. Read more...
