In Topic: New anti sebum drug: MTC896

So far im in two weeks in with the medication, I wont tell you what group I'm in, but I I can tell you I feel my face is much much less oily, and it isn't dry or cracking or peeling, I had my 3rd appointment after two weeks of using the medication, I have two more weeks until my next one. I am breaking out much less, I expect it to stop all together at this rate. This study is still phase 2

 

Awesome, that sounds really promising. How oily was your skin before?

I am currently in the Research Study for this new drug. I guess since, some of these posts are from 2011, that i am probably in the phase 3 study, They are paying big bucks for test subjects to volunteer, and they are very very very selective on who they let it. I didn't think my acne was going to be severe enough to get it, but I did. It is late 2014, I just started the medication, i will let you know how it works out for me personally.

 

That's really cool! I would love to hear how it goes, if you're allowed to talk about your experience.

Ah okay, makes sense. Was it still too expenisve for you even with the generic brand of Accutanes?

Are you still using the peppermint oil to decrease your oil? Your results on that were impressive and I could imagine that something like that could be used long term.

I look forward to your progress and results. Good luck!

 

The generic brands weren't prohibitively expensive, but I still wanted to find a cheaper alternative. I've stopped peppermint oil and all other topicals for the time being. I've used so many different products on my skin over the past year that I want to give it a break.

I didn't blot my skin. I tried lowering, but my eyes were extremely dry as well. I feel like it has done some permanent damage to my bones, because they pop alot now. I would not reccomend this to anybody.

 

What brand of vitamin A did you use?

Jofo, I know you used to use Accutane low dose. How come you stopped doing it?

 

I stopped using it because I was worried about the long-term side effects, and it was very expensive. I've been searching for a safer and cheaper alternative because I would rather not be dependent on Accutane for the rest of my life. It did work, though.
