    While it clearewd up my son's acne beautifully, he had a full blown seizure while on this medication. He had never had a seizure before and has not had once since we have taken him off the medication. It was definitely not worth it to us.

    This has been AMAZING! I've tried every type of oral medication you could imagine for my face and this is the only one ive seen improvement in. I've only been taking this for less than a month and almost EVERYTHING is gone. Despite the dry lips, peeling skin, and noticable mood changes this is definetly worth it. If nothing has worked for you yet definetly try this, you won't regret it ... Show Full Comment

    My 14 year old son has became very irritable and aggressive. He has only been taking the RX for 2 months. It is not worth it to us.
