    I have had acne for at least 20 years,from severe to moderate.Tried every antibiotic,creams,tanning,accutane.You name it I have used it.In the last couple of months,dropped my test dose down to 100mg every 8 days.Started blasting some hcg to get my balls back.I broke out like crazy,big painful zits,even my scalp was covered.Had lunch with a friend,he said"i should try bactrim".Went to the derm,put me on 980mg/ed.After 10 days I'm clear,not one zit left standing.I wish I had used bactrim 20 years ago,it's been a life changer.You can't stay on it forever,I'm doing blood work every 2 months so nothing gets out of whack.It's one of the only antibiotics that will treat staph so you don't want to use it to long.

    Yeah, I have Bactrim on hand myself. I found Rifampin to be most effective against cystic acne. Three to five days and it's gone.

    Never heard of that one.Looks like a serious antibiotic used to treat leprosy.The thing is you don't want to build up a resistance to these drugs,they're a last defense to a lot of serious infections.

    Yeah, it's used for tuberculosis! Strong stuff for sure. They gave it to me in jail when I had staph all over my chest, back, face, and scalp. Cleared most of it in three days.

    If anyone is interested, I looked at ADC for pricing and it's-

    30 tabs- $4.35

    60 tabs- $7.97

    90 tabs- $11.41

    It's listed as-

    Sepmax 800mg + 160mg (960mg)

    It's generic for Septra DS which is the same as Septra, Bactrim and Bactrim DS, you can google them all together.

    Sulphamethoxazole (800) + Trimethoprim (160)

    Good post Cabo.

    I know the stuff is so cheap^^good find.I don't think big pharma can make any money on it so it's never prescribed.
