  1. I have been getting mixed signals on whether or not to take a multivitamin with accutane...as of now I stopped taking my centrum for the past few days, and actually broke out pretty bad. I don't know if that might be a good thing purging my skin, or if it's just bad breaking out. PLEASE HELP
  2. I've just been recently put on minocycline and retin-a micro....Is there anything i should take along with these? I heard someone say something about taking probiotics....could anyone be more specific?
  3. I've heard medicine like singulair could really help with acne....anyone know anything about this?
  4. Ok I've been using Alpha-hydroxy lotion (from walgreens) for about a month now, and i'm pretty sure i'm going through the initial break out stage (i'm broken out bad). If I add retin-a micro to this regimen, will I go through even more of a breakout or what will happen?
  5. My derm put me on a mix of retin-a micro and clindagel. This was before I heard about the alpha hydroxy regimen, and wanted to try that. I know both cause an initial break out, so which one would everyone suggest?
  6. Hmmm....and how long were you on this regimen until you started seeing results?
  7. Perosnally i would take 1 biotin (1000 mcg) per 4 grams of B5
  8. Thanks for the help, anyone else with an opinion? I was thinking about accutane....and I just don't feel like I can commit. I mean my face isn't horrible and I would like to be able to get rid of all the zits, but I'm worried i will go through an initial breakout and make the situation worse when I could have just left it alone.
  9. Yeah it seems the general consensus on this board is bad on a lot of prescriptions...
  10. So I visited my derm today....and I was prescribed Retin-A micro .4% clindagel 1% Later add Brevoxyl creamy wash 4% benzoyl peroxide. Does anyone have any experience with these medicines? I would like to know any info before/if I start. I've also heard some bad things about starting antibiotics. I'm currently on B5. My acne is mild/moderate but looks controlled when I put concealer on in the morning. I would like to get to a point where I don't have to apply make up.
  11. Right now I'm trying a 6g regimen....not too many results to speak of though I've only been on this for about 3 and a half weeks. So cjb, do you think that's a good amount of biotin?
