You should go ahead with the Acnetrex as your dermatologist has prescribed for the said duration, but if it does'nt work you should give Dan's Regimen a sincere try, if hav'nt really given it a shot.

I've been on millions of prescribtion antibiotics and none of them really gave me satisfactory results. I switched to DKR and I've been on the regimen for the past 4 weeks, and I can sense success already.

You can check out reviews of Acnetrex( I think they should have it) in the treatment reviews.

As for your eye-sight I dont think the regimen can do no harm :)

Best Of Luck

I am almost finished with my first box of acnetrex and I really had a breakout but according to the handbook, it's just normal during the initial stage. Also, I am feeling musle and joint pains, drying of skin, blurring of eyesight as advised prior to taking it. Moreover, I noticed that my face is not becoming oily anymore so it must really be working. I 'll be coming back to my derma this Friday to have another blood test before taking my second box of acnetrex and I am really hopefull that this medicne would really work wonders as I religiously take it until the prescription is over. By the way, I am using topical solutions since breakouts during the presciption os visible and as advised by my derma, I can still apply the solution I've been using prior to taking acnetrex sush as Stieva A, clindamycin phosphate, and cetaphil as my facial wash.

I'm going to move this to the Accutane section so you'll get more feedback.

((For anyone wondering, Acnetrex is oral isotretinoin.))
