I have been taking this drug 2 months 100mg twice daily. It has helped my acne somewhat but I still get break outs. I started having mood swings shortly after beginning but have just recently decided the drug was the cause. I get extremely angry and then get a bad headache. It also causes me to have weired dreams.

My acne has never really been that bad, but I am self concious. So my doctor perscribed this medicine. It has been very effective. Everyone compliments my skin, but I get a little sick to my stomach if I don't eat something which I don't mind cause I love food. The only thing I am concerned about is that I run and this makes my skin sensitive so my hands and face have been hot lately. Also ... Show Full Comment

I have recently started to have what I thought was heartburn from acid reflux. Now I'm wondering if it is a reaction to this drug. It feels like I'm being punched in the sternum every time I swallow.

well, i just started using this medication for my acne and yes! it does upset my stomach if i don't eat it with food. I still can't tell if it is working since I barely started using it but no new acne has developed. So, that is good. I read some other comments that said it killed good bacteria and that discouraged me a little bit but hopefully I won't be needing this later on .
