Acne Medication Lymecycline - A view from our expert

Picture of Mr Mohammed

Mr Mohammed

Advance Pharmacist Prescriber

“Getting rid of acne can be a battle, affecting confidence and self-esteem. The most severe form of acne can be particularly tough to treat, as over the counter medicines can be ineffective. Lymecycline hard capsules are oral antibiotics that work from within your body to kill Propionibacterium- the bacteria that causes acne.

Although Lymecycline is effective, it can take a while to see results, so you should continue treatment for at least 8 weeks. Lymecycline works better when prescribed alongside another form of treatment called topical treatment. These are creams or gels that are applied directly onto your skin.

At Click2Pharmacy, we check if you are suitable to take Lymecycline and provide you with a prescription, providing you are 18 years or older. In addition, we can offer a topical product such as Differin or Epiduo that you can use in combination with Lymecycline 408mg capsules.”

It is great to have somewhere local that does blood testing. The staff are lovely, helpful and experienced. They fit me in last minute. There is never a wait and the results back within a day or two.
After refusal of doctors appointment same old same old ring back etc. I was invited at 5.25 to see doctor I drove over immediately. Everything fully explained and checked over I was leaving by 6pm with penicillin for strep throat. Had I followed my doctors receptionist I would probably have suffered longer and increased the chances of a worse infection.I Great efficient service.
