hey... so i'm almost done my first package of diane - 2 more pills, and holycraaap i have been getting worst breakouts then ever! I had mild acne before this, not horrible- and now.. its horrible!! I'm so upset over this because its all over my cheeks, i never used to be like this until the pill. I wash my face twice a day, and probably take a lot more care of it than most people who have clear skin so im wondering if its a reaction to it? or, maybe im just adjusting? Did this happen to anyone else? Anyways, i'll post if it improves/or doesnt doubt.gif

Hey I know how you feel, just hang in there. I have been taking Diane 35 for 7months now and I am clear. It took me about 5.5 months before it completely worked. You just ahve to be patient. When I first started my chin was the worst place. I found that using a mild cleanser (spectro Jel) and Neutogena Healthy skin ( without sunscreen) works well. The healthy skin cream contains AHA, so i only use it at night. Don't overwash, use fragrance free washes, non-comedemic, and soap free. Change your pillow cases. I use to be a preoduct junkie until I found my perfect products. Dont give up, there is hope.

Trust me it;s a struggle. It took 3/.5 half months for me to finally clear. Now I'm taking apo-sulfatrim as well. Good luck, I was so embarrassed to go out and I even stayed home from work many times last year

Everything you've mentioned I went through. I even took days off of work because I was embarrassed about my skin. I wouldn't go out with my friends either. I'm still on Diane, next week will be 7 months. I'm also using Alpo sulfatrim and it seems to be really working. My PMS weeks still suck, I tend to breakout during this time. But the breakouts aren't as bad as they used to be. Still it sucks when ur clear for a few weeks and then here come the zits. How r things going with you?

Thats weird..Diane really helps me....but maybe some people just don't react well to the composition, it IS different from many BC products. I would see your Derm..maybe they can put you on SPIRO too..or switch to ortho + spiro.

get to the derm regardless..you shouldn't be breaking out that badly on ANYTHING
