Acne Medication Lymecycline - A view from our expert

Sakib Mohammed

Sakib 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.”
