User Comments about Lymecycline
24 Jan 2017 I had severe fever within 4 hours of one dose (40C) , ringing in the ear, horrific headache, nausea, painful neck. Went to the doc and she said to go on, it's not the medication. But I didn't listen to her. Two months later, I took the capsule apart and took a small fraction of the capsule content - 5 hours later I had 38C fever. No idea why.

28 Aug 2016 I was on lymecycline initially for 6 months but didn't wein myself off the tablets slowly so acne came back. Went on them again for a year and after weining myself off slowly towards the end of the course my moderate acne has gone and my complexion looks 100 times better. However, these tablets have irritated my bowel so much that i have had chronic pain for 6 months and lost my appetite. I also had terrible mood swings and depression, becoming withdrawn from work and social situations. Saying that, 2 weeks after stopping the tablets i feel back to my old self.

15 Jun 2016 Have been on the medication for a month so far with possible 3-4 month duration to complete course for acne and rosacea. There has been significant improvement in my acne since starting, less pustules, especially the ones which were starting to scar my face and a huge improvement in the dry skin resulting from the spots. The rosacea has not improved greatly so far, the redness is less but still remains, I don't get the 'burning' feeling anymore though that I got when everything would be flaring up.

17 Oct 2015 I have used Lymecycline for several months and whilst I have not noticed any serios side effects, it does not help my chronic dry eye condition. It appeared to help when I first began using it but soon became less effective. I was not happy about doubling up on the dosage as was recommended as the probable side effects were worrying.

16 Oct 2015 This is my second course of Lymecycline. It's a long road with little in the way of immediate results, but it cleared up my acne brilliantly the last time, so hoping that it does so again this time around. The headaches are driving me to despair and it's not making me feel as happy as usual, but I only have another 4 weeks to endure...
