orthotricyclen lo for acne

i just started using ortho lo perscribed by my gyn for acne about 3 months ago. i was wondering if anyone else has used it as well. it hasn't really helped my acne at all (and has even made it worse at first). i know orthotricyclen is the only oral contraceptive FDA approved for acne, but my dr. said this would work as well. i'm wondering how long it takes to work, or if i should just have her switch me to regular orthotricyclen. thanks in advance for your responce! biggrin.gif

im on the "lo" kind and im not entirely sure how much it is doing by itself (im also on differin and clindamycin) but it certainly prevents flairups around ttotm. im not sure how effective it would be on its own though....
