Lymecycline acts by targeting bacteria that cause the inflammation associated with acne, this allows old lesions to heal and prevents new blemishes from forming. Lymecycline is part of the tetracycline antibiotic group and is prescribed to prevent bacteria from spreading effectively. Attacking a bacteria known as propionibacterium acnes prevents the bacteria’s ability to produce proteins essential to their survival. As a result, the bacteria also lose the ability to grow and reproduce. This allows your immune system the opportunity to fend off the existing bacteria.

How To Take Lymecycline
When using Lymecycline 408mg Capsules, you should follow the instructions given to you by your doctor. The usual dose given for acne treatment is one capsule daily, preferably taken in the morning. The capsules should always be taken with a glass of water. The length of time of your course depends on the severity of your acne and how quickly it improves. The course is normally at least 8 weeks.
If you take more capsules than required, or you believe a child has swallowed a capsule, you should contact your nearest hospital casualty department or tell your doctor immediately. If you forget to take a dose, do not double up doses. Take the dose as soon as your remember and then take the next dose at the correct time.
