    I've heard that it takes more than a month for this medication to work and that's what is happening now. I am starting my second and last month of taking a single 100mg dose everyday(I only have random cystic acne breakouts).

    I have been on this med for 2 months, can't be even more happier. I had tried many topical medications, nothing helped. After first week of using this med I saw big difference. My skin got much better, no more acne. But I had to stop this med for 2 week and all acne came back. Not sure what is gonna happen once I stop this medication again :(

    My acne was bad when I finally decided to see my doctor. I tried everything you can imagine, all natural remedies and nothing worked. I started to get acne when I was 25 years old, not too bad, tried proactive and did miracles. Then in October of 2014, I started to get the real painful cyst acne and every morning I was reminded with the pain! I never had those before, they were ingrown bumps! Proa ... Show Full Comment
