    I have been on claravis for 6 months and my acne have cleared. I had cystic acne and it has cleared. The only thing is that my lips got very dry, eyes were dry and inside of nose was so dry that it would bleed. When I used car ex for my lips throughout the day my lips were fine. Artificial tears for eyes and drinking lots of water helped. Also Vaseline inside my nostrils kept my nose from dry ... Show Full Comment

    I'm a 22 year-old male and I've been taking 1 40mg tablet twice daily for about a month now. The amount of acne has so far decreased a fair amount, as well, I've only seen only a handful of new pimples form - these pimples now form, harden and disappear in a matter of days when it used to take 1 week +, they are also not as large as before I began treatment. As far as side effects, my ... Show Full Comment

    In short, I am not getting any new acne which is fantastic, but there is a lot of scarring on my back from dealing with deep cystic and nodular acne for so long. It was my fault for not going this route sooner. So I'm glad I took Claravis, but it was no picnic. My biggest symptoms were burning dry/red eyes, super chapped lips, and hair loss. I've never been on any sort of hard prescription ... Show Full Comment

    I am finally acne free. I will still get the occasional small pimple but nothing like I used to get. I also struggled with cystic acne. Now if I get a pimple it is gone by the next day. I did not get fully clearly until a month after I finished Claravis. I was on Claravis for 5 months.

    I am a 23 yr old female and today I start my second round of Claravis. I had amazing success the first round, but unfortunatly may acne came back about 8 months after being off the medications. Of course I had cracked/dry lips and dry skin, but I already had dry skin to start. but the worst and most frightening thing is I had crying spills and panic attacks for NO REASON. I have always been super ... Show Full Comment
