Skin 101: Tetracycline For Acne

Discover the benefits of tetracycline for acne

Some people tend to suffer from more severe cases of acne which require more than an over the counter cream to treat. Tetracycline for acne is one of the most popular antibiotics that is prescribed by dermatologists to treat skin. It works by interfering with bacterial protein synthesis and has anti inflammatory properties. Tetracycline for acne is known to be quite effective in clearing up skin and takes several weeks to get into full effect.

When first prescribed, Tetracycline for acne is usually given in a starting dose of 500 mg twice daily. Once acne begins to decrease, the dosage can slowly be decreased. On a side note, the medication must be taken on an empty stomach in order to be most effective and should not be given to pregnant women. In addition, Tetracycline is not only used to treat acne. This medication has also been used to treat other conditions, including rosacea, chlamydia, syphilis and lyme disease.
