My review of Sotret vs Amnesteem

so first month i was set on 30mg Sotret. the side effects were:

- dry lips

- 24/7 migrain (very weak but noticeable)

- Hives ( small areas)

- dry facial

- dry crotch ( yes i could see flakes peeling lol dead serious)

- extreme facial sensitivity to sunlight

- Hella expensive ( $235 copay)

now 2nd month on 40mg and i requested amnesteem. The side effects were:

- dry lips

- occasional nose bleed ( whenever i 4get to stick some moisturizer in my nose canal)

- $167 copay

very happy and will be sticking with amnesteem for the rest of the ride to clearer skin.

Not sure why Sotret is such a pain in the azz for the side effects.

If anyone is having serious issue with your side effects, request a different brand. Keep trying different brands until you find the right one for you. SOme1 said each brand uses different types of "binding" whatever that means, but still gives same results.

been on sotret for over a week. no side effects...yet.

got a minor initial breakout. but an initial breakout was almost inevitable no matter which brand I took.
