    Although it costs me approximately $300 for one tube of Aczone, it's worth every penny. I began taking Acutane at 14 when people started mistaking my acne for the chickenpox. I am now 21 and have completed 3 1/2 courses of Acutane since then. Between each course of treatment I tried just about every topical and oral medication my dermatologist could think of, including antibiotics. Acutane see ... Show Full Comment

    I've only been on Aczone for less than two weeks and I already see a TREMENDOUS improvement. When I was first prescribed this medication my acne was at its worst. I could barley even cover it with concealer and two foundations. Less than two weeks later my face is more clear than it has been in a couple of years. My dermatologist said that with the help of another topical and an oral antibioti ... Show Full Comment

    My insurance does not pay squat for this medication but I get it as often as I can afford it is by far the best I've used so far.

    For both small comedones and occasional nodular acne this has worked well. I hated duac gel - too drying. I still use retin a at night.

    After I went to the derm she gave me Aczon, Atraline and Doxo (pils). First week, I broke out, but continue because the medicine had to pull all the acne out. Second week, the same and I was going to stop using, but the third week I started peeling a little and seeing some improvement. I excited about the rest of my journey.
