Hi there, I have been taking Lymecycline for a few


Q: Hi there, I have been taking Lymecycline for a few months now and whilst it improved my acne to begin with there is still a lot on my back and a few on my face. I went back to the doctor who prescribed Co-Cyprindiol for me to take alongside the previous tablet. Reading the leaflet that came with it, it says other medicines may affect the way co-cyprindiol works as a contraceptive so I just wondered whether lymecycline was one of these or whether I can use this pill as a contraceptive. Thanks
