Hello, everyone. After a long, 8 year journey of battling cystic acne, trying every antibiotic out there, every topical, retnoid, etc., I was just prescribed Isotretnoin today, with the orders to begin in ten days.

My mother has IBD - Ulcerative Colitis. It's no joke. She was diagnosed far after I was born, so I don't know if hers was triggered by some of virus like it is in some people, or if it was always there and resurfaced late.

Has anyone been on this drug with a family history of UC? Am I a fool for trying to? I've read tetracycline antibiotics carry a risk of developing Crohns, or even UC.

Any advice is greatly appreciated.
