    This medication COMPLETELY prevented my acne from returning. I am very happy with the effectiveness of the drug however, it also tends to make the consumer very photosensitive (sensitive to sun light). As a drum major of a drum corps, I am in the sun sometimes up to 12 hours a day and this medicine makes it very difficult to keep from getting sunburned.

    I took this for acne that I had on my back, and it never helped, only gave me an unwanted yeast infection.
