    I would not recommend this medication. I am currently suffering from a mild case of acne and my dermatologist presribed me this medication. The first day I took it I felt drowsy and nausiated after a few hours. It made me so sick that I ended up vomiting(in which the vomit was a weird slimy saliva consistency). At first I didn't know if it was the medication for sure so I proceeded to take i ... Show Full Comment

    I have been on this medicine for almost 4 years now - doctors from Germany, Czech Republic, India and now the UK have prescribed it to me. I have found that it has controlled 90% of my acne but never fully cured them. My liver tests have all been normal (the constant blood tests every 6 months were mildly annoying) but this has probably been the only drug that has made any difference. I didn&# ...

    While the acne did go away I have had a skin reaction for the past 5 months all over my entire body from taking this drug. I have been off of it for most of that 5 months and there has been no change. My dermatologist says it may take up to 9 months for the skin reaction to disappear, I recommend no one use this drug. Trust me, having acne is far better!
