Dianette - How long for it to work for you?

Recommended Posts

I have recently been prescribed this, lately my skin has been getting worse so i had to do something.

I know it takes some time to work, but i wonder, how long it took for you?

And if you have come off it, did you get the acne back?

Because hormones are very unique to the individual, the results are un-predictable.

There are many on this board who cleared up within 2 weeks, others a month, others 4 months.

Unlike tane, topical retinoids, finacea, BP, which usually take about 3 months to work, Dianette is basically random. so very tough question to answer!

And yes, if you do come off it, you are almost garunteed to break out again (its no cure). It works by stabalizing your estrogen, once you stop it, it comes back.
