medications to help with facial flushing?

Recommended Posts

I have been having some issues with facial flushing post Accutane. It has been around 6 weeks and I am still getting daily flushes/redness.

I am taking Clonidine twice daily which seems to be helping a little but not a whole lot.

Any other medications out there that people have had success with in preventing facial flushing?

I have heard of Propanalol and Nadolol, but am not sure how they stacks up against Clonidine...

Any opinions or experiences on this subject are appreciated. I see my derm next week and would like to drop a few drug names to see what he thinks?

- Thanks

Hey soul, I actually find the propanalol better than clonidine, but as you know i don't take the propanalol all the time. It tends to loose it's effectiveness if taken continously. Therefore i save it for occasions when i know i would probably be flushing.

So i think you should try the propanalol on the side if your derm is willing. Hit this shit hard as early as you can.

I am also considering switching from clonidine to oracea, i am not 100% convinced the problem stems from the autonomic nervous system, i believe it is probablu 80% inflammation that is the problem.

Good luck bro.
