I went on Tane around 1996 and I was in my late 20's at the time so my memory may be a bit fuzzy. I honestly don't remember any breakouts that were unually large while I was on it. I do know that my dosage was upped after a few months in, so maybe it's a gradual thing.

It completely dried up my oiliness, cured my bacne, and helped my face to a degree. My acne never came back after tane as badly as it did before. But here I am, 38 and I'm still breaking out, but nowhere near as bad as it used to be.

Good luck to all of you and keep a good lip balm with you at ALL times!
