The drug has started to show signs that it is no longer effective in my treatment, as I have been breaking out consistently. The drug eventually quits working as your body and the acne bacteria develop a resistance. Researching the product I ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
There has been some improvement in my acne since taking this medication. But it's difficult to decipher whether its this oral antibiotic or the topical creams that have helped the most. The worst effect of this medication is the severe constipation and that's even after eating a high-fiber diet, rich in fruits & vegetables and oatmeal daily.
