    I was on claravis (20mg) for a little over two weeks (took 16 tables) and my acne has completely disappeared from my body and face. Had some side effects, such as severely chapped lips while on it, which was okay. The day or two after I stopped, I had my first outbreak of HSV-1 ever (at the sight of the previous lip dryness), and now, a week later, it is difficult for me to maintain an erection. I ...

    135 lbs, male here. Started 20mg/day on first month. 40mg/day 2nd month. Minor and manageable rashes up to this point. On third month, it was upped to 60mg/day. But after two days of taking it, my rashes got out of control. It's all over my arms, elbows and spreading on my neck. Back and muscle pains are also starting to be noticable. At this time, I would prefer having acne than what I have n ... Show Full Comment

    The dedication to the iPLEDGE program and the monthly blood work I went through was worth it. At first the acne got worse. I was so embarrassed, but I pushed through it. By the 4th month the acne started going away dramatically. By the 5th month I barley had any acne and by the 6th I had none. I had extremely chapped lips, rectal bleeding, and rashes. Chapstick became my best friend and I learne ... Show Full Comment

    Just started taking claravis after having severe scarring acne for what seems like forever. After having kids, the nodular acne was worst. I am sure that within the first few days of taking Claravis, I all of a sudden was having memory loss and was angered suddenly by things that didnt annoy me before the medication. I am getting weird pains here and there and chalk it up to side effects. You ... Show Full Comment
