Our dermatologist prescribed this for my son (15yrs). He has only been on it 3 days and has experienced side effects including headache, dizziness, nausea, and vomiting. We have stopped taking it.

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
