How to take Lymecycline with Epiduo

You'll need to take one 408mg lymecycline tablet once a day, ideally in the morning. Swallow your tablet with plenty of water and avoid consuming large amounts of milk or milk products shortly before and after taking your antibiotic.

Apply a thin layer of Epiduo gel to your acne symptoms once a day.


Each lymecycline tablet contains 408mg of the active ingredient of the same name. Additional ingredients include magnesium stearate, colloidal silica, gelatin, titanium dioxide, erythrosine, quinoline yellow and indigo carmine.
