I was 14 when i started it...it worked great for a while, but stopped after about 8 months. I had moderate acne at the time. I am starting accutane tonight as the acne is resistant to the mino.

I was 15 when i first tried it, didnt do anything for me. Have cystic acne.

Tried it again at 23, over a year and a half after coming off Isotretinoin (Accutane) again, it really didnt do anything for me.

I started taking it 2 weeks ago for medium acne..cystic painful pimples, whiteheads, lots of reddness... I saw my skin clear out after the 3rd day on it. But in the 2nd week (the last 2 days) I've gotten extremly nauseas and have had to get off it. I'm gonna start taking it again tomorrow night only one a day, instead of 2 a day. I have an appt. next week with my dermatologist and will ask his opinion on that day.

I'm going on three weeks with mino but I'm also using retin amicro, it's hard to tell if it is working or not because I'm still experiencing the IB stage of the retin a but I'm gonna stick with it a little longer to see if any improvements occur. By the way I have noticed a slight decrease in the amount of acne I have but I don't know what I would attribute that to...the topical or the mino.
