After 3 weeks of treatment, my lips are severly chapped, and peel and blled almost daily. Frequent vaseline helps. I have started getting nosebleeds and some blood in my stool - but nothing unbearable...hopefull I can make it another 3 months without anything worse than this. My skin looks good so far...no major breakouts.

My skin is clearing up slowly. I am in my 3rd month and getting a little frustrated. very dry lips and skin, some rashes on my arms, HAVE to wear sunblock all the time, some joint pain, headaches, i also get aggitated very easily(not like me at all). And its kinda expensive. But if i works in the end, it will all be worth it! :)Good luck to all users!

My acne did get worse around 18 days in, so my dr. put me on prednisone to lessen the reaction. And on week 3 I noticed my left knee joint starting to hurt (I exercise and run regularly and hear that that side effect ... Show Full Comment

I was on Claravis for 8 months because of my acne and i am extremely pleased with the results. Even though it took such a long time it did exactly as described by my dermatologist. The first few months the acne did break out worse but around the 3rd month it began to slowly make the acne go away.
