What sort of medication do dermatologists perscribe for acne?

I'm just curious because it's likely that I am going to be refered to a dermatologist by my doctor shortly.

I've heard the stuff they perscribe can cause depression?

it depends how bad your acne is, if you have severe acne then they will probably prescribe you accutane

I have mild/moderate acne, but I have been using BP and anti-biotics for a year now.

well there will probabley be other things that your derm can put you on first but if they dont work then they will probabley suggest accutane.

I took something called "minocycline" which is a tetracyline 2 years ago. It works wonders for mild acne, but when you stop, it comes back with a vengeance.
