I'd like to know has Isotrex worked for you too?

Today is the first day I applied it - I hope it works! I'm going to use it 6 weeks - if no or small improvement I will go for iso...

How long did you use it? were you on accutane/ the pill too´? Are you clear now?

I've been using it since November last year. It seems to be working, but i'm finding that you have to use as if its bp in the regimen i.e have a really thorough, regular cleansing regime. I take it with an oral antibiotic called lymecycline too. As my skin is really "resistant to treatment" according to my doctor I have to take two of these daily rather than the usual one. I've not had accutane, and I want to try and avoid it if possible. My brother has used accutane, that stuff works but its vicious. And a couple of years on he still suffers from the odd bad breakout. He should probably go and get another course from his derm but is trying to avoid that by using the regimen at the mo. Accutane is my next step though, if what I am currently doing decides to stop working. You use an antibiotic with your isotrex too?

I'm not using an oral antibiotic but my "version" of isotrex (isotrexin) includes Erythromycin.

I'm also taking the contracptive pill (Diane/4th month).

So far (4th day of applying Iso) I have not seen any improvement - maybe a slight decline (probably due to the irritation).
