I hope you're aware that it's PERFECTLY LEGAL for a physician to prescribe drugs off-label for any purpose he sees fit. There's absolutely no question about that.

I haven't taken it yet though, waiting to see how my skin does in the next couple months with bp as my hormones may still be leveling out from birth control.
