Not sure if it will work. I'm scared to start taking it because I know it kills all the good bacteria but a word of advice to all. They have over the counter probiotics that are reasonably priced. Ask you doctor if you can take it with the medication or take it after you finish the full treatment. I've taken antibiotics and probiotics afterwords and it really helps with stomach sensitivity

My son has been on this medication for his mild acne for about a year. It has improved his skin. However, he has developed stomach sensitivity. He is experiencing nausea and just recently vomiting has started-originally thought was a "flu-bug" but persisted. Unfortunately, will discontinue use.

Comment:
I am using this medication for acne, and I am very happy w/ the results. As a teen, I never really experienced acne so I was very surprised and sad when it started popping up. After seven months of using products, like pro-active, which guaranteed results -but didn't do anything, I finally went to my doctor for help. My skin is back to its normal self!

lKristie402, Although all cases are different, my doctor told me I would have to be on this medication for years if not for the rest of my life. He also prescribed Diflucan with many refills for the yeast infections I get due to this medicine. All in all it's not too bad once you get used to it.
