I need information on this. I just got prescribed it today, and like I know all the side effects. But I wanna know like how it works, and what I can use while on it. Should I still use BP or TTO or SA? Im confused!

It depends on the individual.

I never had any success with any antibiotic treatment for acne. There are many people here who will swear by it. I think it's a bad idea for long term use and there's tons of medical studies to prove that.

As for Sulfa, some people respond well to it. I had an allergic reaction, broke out it hives and got severe migraines -- and it still didn't clear me up. You won't know how you do until you try it.

Oh don't worry about it. I recall a guy here from a long time ago who was taking Bactrim, and he kept a photo log of his progress. His progress was fantastic, he went from moderate-severe acne to clear. I think SULFA drugs actually have the ability to work better than normal antibiotics.

I'm fairly certain you can still use your topicals. Are you going to a dermatologist?
