Hey guys first time poster here.

Just wondering if those that are following the regimen have forgone using their pprescription to follow the guide.

If so should i start that?


Me; I have severe body acne and severe face acne, I dont eat as healthily as I'd like to but im making the change.

Also I have been on and off my medication which has probably just made it worse. I am on tetracycline and duac gel and have been for the past 2-3 years + and sometimes my spots are non exsistant but most times there is no change.


My fear is that on the time it did work I was eating properly and so on but now I have become used to the antibiotic and so it has no effect on me anymore.


Anyway I'd love to hear what you guys have to say so i can finally make the decision.


EG. stick with prescription or do the regimen.




Thanks a lot,

Love Someguy who has acne

If it's severe, then isotretinoin is the way to go.
