so i have acne, and have been struggling with it for about 3 years now. i have finally let go of my pride and became open about the fact that it has really hurt who i am. i have never wanted to try any sort of pill to clear my acne until about 7 months ago when i started taking minocyclin. i have been taking this pillfor 7 months, and along the way trying every single lotion, creme, wash, scrub and nothing has worked! my doctor desperatly wanted to me steer away from considering accutane, so he prescribed me YAZ, birth control. i have never been the type to agree with birth control, and wanted to do my own research before i filled my prescription. funny enough, the day after i was prescribed this stuff, a good friend of mine who was a yaz user, had to stop taking it the week before and get a bunch of blood tests done. this scared me right out of taking yaz, and now i have an appointment with my derm next monday, and hopefully he will approve of accutane! i have done alot of my own research and am very, very confused and indesisive!
what are your suggestions/feedback?! id love to hear from you. thanks =)
