I've had acne since I was 10 years old (that's right 10 years old) and I'm 15 now. It's really hard dealing with it-- I don't have severe acne, but it's moderate. It's definitely worse than your average teenage acne. People don't realized the emotional effect acne has on people who suffer from it. I often wonder if I'd be more confident and outgoing if I had cle ... Show Full Comment

Several weeks into the regimen, I had bloodwork done for an unrelated issue, and my liver panels ca ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I have taken Nicomide on and off for over 10 years now, I don't really even understand how it works but it does! I find if I stop taking my 2 tablets a day I get a couple cystic pimples, a few smaller ones, and my pores clog more easily in general. The second best part of the medication is the fact that I have never experienced any adverse side-effects. My pharmacist is great and keeps it stoc ... Show Full Comment

I been taking Nicomide for years and it worked just fine until recently. I'm going to increase my dosage to 3 a day. My insurance does cover my prescription. I get my through mail order and it's only $20 for a 90day supply.
