Argh! This stuff was amazing and the only thing that keeps me clear! What can I use as an alternative? Is Quinoderm just as good?

Thanks in advance!

I found some 2.5% on amazon yesterday eve... maybe you just have to order online/ from abroad now. Otherwise the lady I spoke to in the chemist says the only other things they have jump up to 4%

Just back from the chemist to refill my script and the girl said its been discontinued sure enough. Not sure if the NHS have just taken it off its list of provided drugs and you can still buy it online or maybe online stockists are selling off current stock? Regarding Quinoderm. I didn't find it as good. It done the job but its cream based and when you sweat in turns white, not nice. Back to Dan's I guess.

this has been gone over a year but can be still bought online. However this won't last forever as bp has a sell by date. I get mine from express chemist as well

My current tube has an expiry date of 01/2014 so I'm ok for now. I have no idea what I'll do in the future! Any suggestions?

Just emailed the manufacturer! Officially been discontinued! So annoying! Been trawling the internet and no-one has any stock left. Anyone found any anywhere?

This is the only product that works for me. I use a finger length amount of gel twice a day, so a full tube only usually lasts me just over a week - so stock piling as much as i can before it's completely unavailable doesn't seem like a sensible approach, so the search begins for something else.

I'm reluctantly going to try Aquagel 4%, and Quinoderm 5%. I will report my findings here.

Do you mean Panoxyl Aquagel 5%? I thought they were doing away with that as well?

I'm going back to Brevoxyl. Remember using it way back. Its cream based so don't know how that may go. Cream based is what put me off Quinodem. When you sweat it turns white.

Ive looked all over the internet with no luck. It seems 5% and 2.5% is out of stock everywhere. Also no luck with over the counter suppliers. Ive tried 12 different places in the Birmingham area and they all say the same, "discontinued".

Not going to lie, im pretty worried. AquaGel 2.5% has literally changed my life in the past few years and I can't seem to find a adequate substitute. If anyone knows of the "next best thing" then please let me know. Im pretty desperate.

Going to pick up a couple 10% today as i can still get them, but while normally using 2.5%, im pretty sure 10% is going to be to strong for me. Although id rather have a slightly red face and have to moisturise every day than be full of spots.

Anyway, any info on this situation would be awesome!

2.5% and 5% have been discontinued mate. (So Stiefel say) You'll definitely feel the difference with the 10% jumping from 2.5%.

There is.....

Brevoxyl 4%
Quinoderm 5%
Panoxyl Aquagel 10%
Dans BP
Acnecide 5% gel

I've just started on the Brevoxyl.

Well im going to start on the 10% in very small amounts. Gonna start just using it once a day and see how I get on.

Acnecide 5% seems like a pretty similar product to PanOxyl AG but its very expensive, £16 for 60g is what im seeing.

Brevoxyl 4% is a cream right? Ive heard cream's end up going white on the skin when you sweat, have you had this problem? I exercise alot so this could be a issue is correct. Also how are you finding it and is it avaible over the counter anywhere or have your got yours online?

thanks

Hey Jake,

Just started on the Brevoxyl so a bit early to judge but it doesn't seem to turn white like say Quionoderm. Its a thinner cream, sort of a gelish texture when applied.

I get mine on script, that's how I found out Panoxyl was being discontinued. I phoned up to get a repeat script and the girl said was there anything else I'd prefer so I went for the Brevoxyl.

Quinoderm can also be gotten on script by the way. I didn't ask about Acnecide but I'm sure its on their database.

Thanks for the info. I've ordered some Brevoxyl 4%. Only £5 so hopefully it works out well.

Got some PanOxyl 10% to keep me going until the Brevoxyl arrives. So far I haven't seen or felt much difference between the 5% and the 10%. Only using small amounts and moisturising after every use so anyone whos in a similar predicament, give the 10% a go but take it easy at first.

Not good... I suppose I will have to work with 4-5% since importing Dan's to Sweden is too risky. Luckily I'm not completely out of 2.5%, and it should last me almost until the end of the year.

I can't believe that this has been discontinued! I have been using this since 2007 and it has been amazing, I had lazer treatment for my acne which cleared it all up but my dermatologist recommended the 2.5% stating it was the best. I bought Brevoxyl for the first time last week and I have had no adverse reactions or breakouts, but it does not control oil in anyway, I put it on at night and I waken up to a really shiny face. I have tried using it under my makeup but within an hour I have an oil slick down the middle of my face!!!! Will be trying Quinoderm next....does anyone know if it controls oily skin better???

Oh dear, just been to my pharmacy to buy some more 2.5% Panoxyl and heard the bad news that it's been discontinued. Like most who have commented on this threat it's the one thing that actually keeps my skin clear!

How have people found the Brevoxyl 4%? Do you need a prescription to buy it?

You don't need a prescription for Brevoxyl, no. You can order it online. I think it's only Duac that you need a prescription for.

I haven't actually used either, so can't comment on how they compare to Panoxyl.
