Alternatives To Accutane?

Recommended Posts

So I was prescribed retinoid+ benzoyl peroxide and an antibiotic a few months ago. It helped my acne but I still get pimples and I'm looking for a long term solution. i'm considering Retin A and Accutane but considering the side effects are there any other medications that would remove the acne?

Thank you very much

The only prescription that works at a long term is Accutane,with a 80% chances of recession but reducing acne greatly in most cases.

Anyways,you can still control your acne with topicals,like bp and retin-a.But it is most likely that you will have to keep using topicals indefinitely.

Antibiotics can do a lot of harm to your digestive tract and immune system when using them long term.
