Medications that interfere with BC - Do they also interfere with BC's ability to control acne?

Recommended Posts

I am currently taking Lamictal, and my doctor also prescribed minocycline for my skin. I am also taking Yasmin birth control for my skin. The BC alone cleared my acne up the first time I was on it within four months. I am currently on my third month of Yasmin this time around, and while it has cleared up my skin quite a bit, I still have some persistent acne around my jawline.

I have read that Lamictal and antibiotics can interfere with a BC's effectiveness. Does this also include it's effectiveness in treating acne?
