    I'm on Lymecycline for acne and I've been on it for about 6 months. Things seemed to be going well but I've had a huge breakout of cysts across my cheeks and chin and it's confidence destroying. I don't want to leave the house. I've heard that the Lymecycline dose is actually pretty mild and people have taken 4 times the amount. Would taking an extra pill help clear up this breakout faster? Or am I better just leaving it. I'm currently a mess and desperate for my skin to stop being so sore and horrible and I'm terrified that taking an extra pill will make my skin worse in the long run

    It's true that the initial dose is low, but I would see your GP again before self-prescribing a larger dose. Do you have a topical cream to use alongside it? If not, something like Duac might be useful to help you with acute breakouts.
