Thinking about quitting Accutane... What are my options now?

Hi All,

My acne is not severe but it is cystic and I get a couple a month that are painful and last for a while. I was recently prescribed Accutane after years of putting it off.

Anyway, I have gottenused to the side effects for the most part but my eyebrow hairs are continuing to shed. I see about 4 - 5 hairs when I wash my face. I this doesn't clear up soon, I am going to stop Accutane and move on. I need my eyebrows. ;)

What are my options if I do quit? It seems I am clear while I take antibiotics but I have to stay on them...

I’ve used Tetracycline, Minocycline, Septra, Keflex, and most recently Solodyne. All work for a while but eventually are not as effective as they once were. Topicals included Erythromycin, Clindamycin, Tazorac, and Retin-A.

What's left to take orally? How effective is Doxy after taking tetracycline and minocycline? What about oral Erythromycin?

Help needed please!!!! :doh:
