Tetracycline Acne Treatment

The main drawback for this antibiotic is that it must be taken on an empty stomach to be the most effective. For a teenage boy who eats frequently, this can be very difficult. Tetracycline should not be given to pregnant women or children under 9 years of age. Using more than the recommended dose will not intensify or quicken your results.
