Lymecycline (Tetralysal)

Acne is caused by a normally harmless bacteria which lives on the skin. When a hair follicle gets blocked it causes either a white or black head and this bacteria can then infect the follicle and cause a number of acne related reactions including papules, nodules, pustules and cysts. lymecycline is an antibiotic in the family of tetracycline antibiotics and it specifically targets and destroys the bacteria which causes moderate to severe acne.

There are many myths around acne which are entirely untrue such as acne being contagious or being caused by dirty skin and poor hygiene. In terms of healing acne, the only way to get rid of it is to treat it effectively with medication such as the antibiotic lymecycline though the type of treatment recommended will be based on the acne you have.

How effective is Lymecycline?

This particular antibiotic is mainly prescribed in the healing of acne due to its effectiveness at destroying the bacteria which causes it; and although it usually takes a few weeks to see the full benefits from your course of medication, many people do see improvements in their skin in as little as a week.

Can I Buy Lymecycline Online?

Lymecycline is a prescription only medication for acne and you can get your prescription and purchase your medication online at Click Pharmacy. Once you fill in a brief questionnaire our doctor will confirm that this is the best treatment for you based on your answers. If they feel it is not appropriate, this will be discussed with you and alternative treatments can be prescribed.

Once you have your prescription, you can purchase lymecycline via the Click Pharmacy site and it will be sent directly to you via next day delivery when possible.

Why choose Lymecycline?

With only one dose required a day it is simple and easy to take. It can also be used alongside a topical antibacterial medication and allowing the user to treat the spots both internally and externally at once.

Lymecycline would be prescribed if you have acne which is developing due to the bacteria on your skin and it would work to destroy this bacteria as this particular antibiotic is highly effective at this job.

For many women, another benefit of lymecycline is that you can wear makeup whilst using it though ideally it is recommended you choose an oil free option which will not encourage the development of comedones (black and white heads|).

What is contained in Lymecycline?

The active ingredient in each tablet is lymecycline.

The inactive ingredients which make up the rest of each tablet include magnesium stearate, colloidal silica, titanium dioxide, erythrosine, gelatin, quinoline yellow and indigo carmine.

How should I take Lymecycline?

Take one tablet, once a day at the same time with a glass of water. If you forget to take a dose then either skip it if you are close to your next dose, or take it as soon as you remember it. Do not take two tablets at once.

So as to avoid reducing the absorption of your medication, do not take any products containing calcium, iron, aluminium, magnesium or zinc within two hours before or after your dose of Lymecycline.

How does Lymecycline work?

Lymecycline stops the bacteria living on the skin which is causing the acne inflammation from reproducing and increasing in numbers. One of the most common types of acne is associated with bacteria called Propionibacterium acnes which lives by feeding on the sebum produced in the skin’s sebaceous glands. The waste this bacteria produces as it feeds irritates the glands and inflames them which results in the spots. By using lymecycline, you are able to decrease the numbers of the bacteria on the skin and bring the acne back under control.

How long can I take Lymecycline for?

You do not want to be taking antibiotics for too long but they can play an important role in the clearing up of your acne. As such, it would be prescribed for the shortest time possible though it is likely the full effects of your medication would be seen by 6 weeks onwards.

Generally, patients are given an 8 to 12 week prescription but this is a decision made on a case by case basis and you will discuss this with a doctor after you have completed the online assessment form.

What are the side effects of Lymecycline?

Some people may experience mild to severe side effects and others may experience none at all; it is entirely dependant on how well your body can tolerate the medication.

The most common side effects of lymecycline include:

  • nausea
  • headaches
  • stomach pains
  • diarrhoea

Other potential side effects include visual disturbances, dizziness and sensitivity to UV light/sunlight.

Severe side effects are unlikely but if you experience those listed below or any other side effects not listed here then contact your doctor immediately:

  • colitis
  • pancreatitis
  • raised pressure in the skull leading to a persistent headache
  • unexplained bruising
  • fever
  • infections
Other Warnings to consider

Due to the potential sensitivity to UV light or sunlight, you can find your skin burning more easily and quickly than before if you are outside in the sun. As such, patients using lymecycline should apply a block each day to affected areas.

it should not be taken by breastfeeding or pregnant women or those diagnosed with reduced kidney function unless otherwise recommended.

If you take the oral contraceptive and find that you experience diarrhoea or vomiting as a side effect of taking lymecycline within two hours, then it's important to be aware that your pill may not have been absorbed by your body and as such you might not be protected against pregnancy. Use a secondary form of protection for a few days.

If you or anyone takes too many capsules then go straight to the nearest A and E for medical help.
