I have used this medication 2 times a day for 6 months with marginal improvement. I got the same degree of clearing with over the counter medications at a much lower price.

It takes awhile and there is occasional outbursts but it does work. I used to get those red blind pimples with no head on my nose and cheekbone area and it cleared it up in about 2months but I get an occasional out break when I am under great stress, so part of my therapy is learning to relax and cope, take each day and its problems as they come.

For the past few months I've had these red postule patches on my forehead that just won't go away. I finally realized I have rosacea and a doc quickly confirmed it. This was $106 at my pharmacy but I'm now happy I tried it. ... Show Full Comment

I give the 5 stars around with the stipulation that I believe I may be starting to get minor facial tremors in the treated areas after 5 years of twice a day usage. I started reading a bit more and it does appear that in a small percentage of people there can be neurological effects. I'm still yet to make this a solid correlation but am going to be doing to the doctors to find out. If it&# ... Show Full Comment
