    I started this medication about 2 mnths ago for my acne. I've never had bad acne until about 6 mnths ago and didn't know that it was bad enough to go on medication. My breakouts stopped immediately when I started the medication. About one week into the treatment, I got a HORRIBLE yeast infection, which is a side effect of this medication.

    I was taking it for a mild relief of acne. However, I happened to experience the extreme side effect of dermographism (which does not happen to be listed on any websites or labels) 3 weeks into the treatment. My derm. explained that around 3-4 weeks is when a patient would be noticing side effects such as this. The side effect that this medicine has caused me is much worse than the acne itself ...
