This is proper treatment prescribed by skin specialist ,only one thing you keep in mound tat some time retino cream may give pilling effect on skin so pilling of skin or redness of skin you find you seek his advise.

its good prescription but not best
u should not take minocycline while on tufacne.
better to take azithromycin 250 mg twice a day for 3 day.
retino ac to be applied at night only.
sun protection is must for u
drink more water.
avoid oily and spicy food

minocycline is good but has some side effects like pigmentation of skin. so i think better to a safer congener like doxycycline. again consult a dood dermatologist. take care.

Hi! dinesh,
Welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,

dinesh ,you should never ever take minocyclin tab along with tufacne .It can cause pseudo tumor of cerebre (one gets sever headache in this).I am happy that you have asked this question ,kindly follow this advice.Tufacne is a wonderful medicine ,but should not be combined with other tablets .It also has other precautions ,which I hope your doctor would have told and discussed with you.Before taking tufacne one should go for certain blood investigations,which i again hope you have got it done.If not then kindly discuss with your prescribing doctor .Kindly consult a dermatologist and not a general physician for acne.

Other creams are all fine.Also use a anti acne face wash regularly.Don't squeeze your pimples.Drink plenty of water and take good sleep in night.If you have any further question, kindly mail me .

I have been plagued by boils since I was a teen. I finally saw a dermatologist and he put me on minocycline, which helps some. I also shower with antibacterial soap. Lately, now that I am older I notice that they are more painful and last longer. Is there really anything over the counter that works? I might add, I sit for long periods at my job. The boils seem to show up in the creases of my legs and my buttocks. Any help would be appreciated.

Tomorrow I have a drug test for a job interview. My sister recently went to the dermatologist and was prescribed minocycline. Without thinking I took 2 100 milligram pills to clear up some last minute acne I have. Will it show up on a drug test administered by work place? Because if I does show up that means I am taking a prescription drug that isn t prescribed to me and that could mean the job, thanks for you help

Hello. I am a 38-yr-old female and have been taking minocycline for rosacea for about 5-years. I am struggling with chronic belching. Honestly, it's becoming quite problematic and I am curious as to whether or not this could indicate a more serious problem. I saw my family doctor last week and have been referred to a specialist, but I have not heard back from them yet.
