  • Overview

    What is Lymecycline and what is it used for?

    Lymecycline is a prescription-only antibiotic medication that is used to treat acne. Lymecycline works by intercepting and halting the growth and reproduction of bacteria that live on your skin. To combat the skin condition, Lymecycline prevents the bacteria from producing proteins that it needs to survive.

    These bacterias are called propionibacterium acnes, and they reside on the outer layer of your skin.

    They can cause inflammation and cysts, which can be uncomfortable, painful, and unsightly. You may also feel a lack of self-confidence because of your skin. Lymecycline works to kill this bacteria and help improve the quality of your skin.

    Lymecycline is a tetracycline-type antibiotic that is also used for the treatment of bacterial infections such as:

    • Pneumonia
    • Bronchitis
    • Mycoplasma infections
    • Trachoma
    • Some sexually-transmitted infections like Chlamydia

    Lymecycline reviews

    Lymecycline reviews are generally positive. Reviewers state that it has improved their acne with very few side effects. Most reviewers note that it takes a while to work, but there is a general consensus that it does work after a few weeks.

    Many reviewers have said that the boost to their confidence and impact on their mental health has been really noticeable and that they highly recommend Lymecycline 408 mg capsules.

    Lymecycline and thrush

    You are at a slightly higher risk of thrush if you take Lymecycline. This is because as well as eliminating the bacteria on your skin, these antibiotics can destroy the Candida bacteria that combats thrush.

    If you have thrush, you may experience itching and redness in your mouth or genital area. Thrush is easily treatable, so if you experience this, then speak to your doctor or a pharmacist.

    Lymecycline and teeth

    As long as your teeth are not growing, you won’t experience any staining or stunted growth. However, Lymecycline is not prescribed to children under the age of 12 because it can cause teeth and bones to stop growing. This is also why it is also not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women.

    Lymecycline and weight gain

    There is a link between some antibiotics and weight gain, although there is no specific link between Lymecycline and gaining weight. If you experience weight gain and are concerned, speak to your doctor.

    Lymecycline and depression

    There is no scientific evidence to prove that Lymecycline can cause depression. However, there is a link between depression and acne because the skin condition can cause a loss of self-confidence.

    Lymecycline and hair loss

    Although many people believe that Lymecycline can cause hair loss, there is no evidence to suggest that this is the case.

    Lymecycline and alcohol

    You cannot drink while taking some antibiotics, but Lymecycline is not one of them. You can drink alcohol while taking Lymecycline with no side effects.

    Lymecycline and pregnancy

    Lymecycline is not usually advisable for pregnant or breastfeeding women. This is because the antibiotic can affect your unborn baby, or small amounts can pass through into breast milk. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, trying to conceive, or suspect that you may be pregnant, speak to your doctor before taking Lymecycline.

    Lymecycline and contraception

    Lymecycline doesn’t stop contraceptive pills working, including the combined pill and emergency contraception.

    However, if you experience any vomiting or diarrhoea as a side effect and take the contraceptive pill, you might be at risk of it failing.

    If you do experience this, find the instructions for your particular pill and follow them. You may need to take an extra pill or use another form of contraception for contraception, such as condoms, for a week.

    Lymecycline is not thought to affect fertility, but it shouldn’t be taken if you are pregnant. Therefore, if you are trying to conceive, it is recommended to speak to your doctor.

  • Directions

    Lymecycline dosage

    It is recommended to take one Lymecycline 408mg capsule every day for a period of eight weeks. Because it is an antibiotic, you must finish the course even if you notice an improvement before the three months is up.

    How to take Lymecycline

    Lymecycline comes in capsule forms. Doctors usually recommend taking one capsule of this medicine once daily, usually in the morning. Each capsule contains 408 mg of lymecycline.

    When you are taking lymecycline for other infections, follow the instructions of your doctor or your pharmacist.

    We suggest taking one Lymecycline capsule every morning. It is a good idea to take it as soon as you wake up, so you remember it as part of your routine.

    Swallow the capsule whole with a medium-sized glass of water. This medicine may be taken with or without food but you will have less risk of feeling sick if you take this medication with food.

    Continue taking this medicine until you complete the course of treatment, even if you start to feel better. Stopping treatment early may result in the problem coming back.

    If you miss a dose of Lymecycline, take it when you remember. However, if it is already the next day, don’t take two doses to make up for your missed dose. If you accidentally take two doses of Lymecycline, don't panic - it is unlikely to hurt you. However, it is advisable to seek medical advice.

    How long does Lymecycline take to work?

    Although Lymecycline is prescribed for three months, noticeable changes will start to occur before the medication cycle has ended. You may see a change before the three months is up - some people will notice it as early as one week - but this varies from person to person.

    It’s important to complete the full course even if you notice an improvement quickly. If you don’t, speak to your doctor after three months and work out a solution.

  • FAQ

    • How does Lymecycline work?

      Lymecycline stops bacteria from growing and increasing their numbers. Your doctor may take a tissue sample to make sure that the infection is caused by bacteria.

      This medication is mainly used for the treatment of acne because it is active against the bacteria that is commonly associated with acne, Propionibacterium acnes, a common type of bacteria that feeds on sebum that is produced by the sebaceous glands in the skin. The bacteria produce products and fatty acids that irritate the sebaceous glands, causing them to get inflamed and cause spots. Lymecycline controls the numbers of bacteria, which bring the inflammation of the sebaceous glands under control and thus allow the healing of the skin.

    • What are the benefits of taking Lymecycline?

      The main benefit of taking Lymecycline is putting acne under control. This is accomplished by controlling the number of bacteria that produce products and fatty acids that irritate the sebaceous glands.
