Has anyone used tetracycline before? If so how long does it take before it starts to work?

I was on Spetra in high school (same family, different antibiotic).  I started noticing a difference in a week or two.  After a month I noticed a BIG difference.  After 3 months all the old damage had completely healed and I wasn't having new breakouts.  I felt like a new person.  I was also using Differin gel.  Good luck!  Let us know how it works for you!

Thanks, I'v been using it for about 3 weeks, and it seem to get worse. Now it seems to be doing a little something.

Most acne treatments seem to make it worse before it gets better.  Acne is just an infection, so I can see the antibiotic making it look worse as it initially gets all the infection out!  Sounds like you are getting past the "worse" and moving on to the "better"!
