I am so happy to be able to say I no longer have to remember to take two pills a day! This journey has been a long one but completely worth it. After I completed the 6th month, I had about 4 new break outs. Of course at the time this had me extremely worried but I believe it was other conditions that brought this on. It has been about two weeks since I've stopped taking Claravis and for the most part there are no new breakouts. My face and lips are still extremely dry and the scarring is definitely still visible but after seeing my before picture, I can safely say THERE IS A HUGE DIFFERENCE!
Looking back at how bad my acne was (not compared to anyone else's), I wish I had begun the treatment years ago! For anyone that may be hesistant starting it based on side effects, every person is different but chances are you will not have a bad reaction other than the minor side effects such as extreme dryness. I have not yet begun putting any topical creams over my entire face, except for on the breakouts. And even then it dries that area out even more! As of right now, I am extremely satisfied with the results and if need be (hopefully not!) I would do this all over again. It was not easy but it was worth it in the long run!
