Lymecycline is an oral antibiotic that is used to treat acne in adults. It belongs to a group of antibiotics known as tetracyclines.
According to NICE, it is recommended to use a topical retinoid or benzoyl peroxide when taking an oral antibiotic to treat acne.
With Prescription Doctor, we offer a combination pack of Epiduo gel and lymecycline capsules to treat severe acne. You will have the option to select this variation pack after the consultation.
Lymecycline is available under the brand name Tetralysal or as a generic. Both generic lymecycline and Tetralysal are available in 408mg capsules.
Lymecycline treats acne by killing bacteria that cause acne.
When a pore becomes clogged, sebum builds up beneath the skin's surface.
Bacteria feed on the excess sebum and excrete chemicals that cause skin irritation and inflammation.
By killing the bacteria, the inflammation is reduced and the skin heals.
When treating acne with Lymecycline, it may take up to 8 weeks for the effects of the treatment to become noticeable.
If you do not notice an improvement in your condition after 8 weeks, speak to your doctor. They may change your dosage or offer an alternative treatment entirely.
It is essential to complete the course of antibiotics, even if the symptoms subside, or you feel better. Stopping antibiotics early can cause the infection to return, or may affect how your body responds to future antibiotics.
Everyone responds to medicines differently. How long you will need to take lymecycline for will depend on the severity of your acne and how well you respond to the antibiotics.
Always take Lymecycline as prescribed by your doctor.
Our online prescriber will determine the most appropriate dosage for you.
The typical dose for acne is to take one 408mg capsule once a day.
Swallow lymecycline capsules whole with a glass of water.
You can take lymecycline capsules with or without food.
Do not crush or break the capsules.
Lymecycline capsules can be taken at any time of day, though it is often recommended to take them in the morning.
You should aim to take your lymecycline at the same time every day.
If you miss a dose of lymecycline, take it as soon as you remember, unless it is time for your next dose. In this case, you should skip the missed dose and take your next dose of lymecycline at the usual time.
Do not take more of the medicine to make up for missed doses.
If you often forget when to take Lymecycline, set a reminder on your phone or smart device.
If you accidentally take too much Lymecycline, speak to your doctor or pharmacist as soon as possible.
Your acne will not clear any fast by taking more lymecycline than you should, but you may put yourself at a greater risk of experiencing side effects.
If you are unsure how much lymecycline you are supposed to take, speak to your doctor.
Do not take Lymecycline if you:
All medications carry the risk of side effects, though they are not guaranteed.
