Should I switch from Spiro to Accutane?

Recommended Posts

I am on 100 mg Spiro, Yasmin, using Duac in the AM and Tazorac at night. I have been on and off Antibiotics for years but never 100% clear except when I used to use tanning beds with the antibiotics.

I am thinking the Yasmin made me worse. Is that possible? I have been on it for 3 months. Also, the Spiro doesnt seem to help (I am 5 weeks in). My doctor started my bloodwork today for Accutane and Ill go back in 30 days for a prego test.

Is switching a good idea? My acne is not severe but I get new pimples everyday and lots of whiteheads. I am 26 and I really have had acne on and off for 10 years. Does Accutane clear up most people completely forever, and is it worth the risks?

HELP, thanks!!!
