  1. you could try going up to 200mg daily if it worked initially - otherwise, Accutane? Thanks for the suggestion!
  2. Hello! I have been on 100 mg Minocyclin for over 2 months. It took 6 weeks to work, and then I was clear for 1 month. For the past month, I have been breaking out again. I am also on Birth Control, Cleocin T, Benzaclin and Tazorac. I am getting married this summer and really want to be clear, does anyone have any prescription suggestions?
  3. My Doc prescribed me 100 mg of Mino to take prior to my upcoming wedding. I would like to start now, but he told me to wait 1-2 months before the wedding so it will be the most effective. In your experience, how long before the wedding should I start using to ensure I am clear? Thank you!
  4. Thank you! Yes I definetly think it is a combo of my presciption meds (Tazorac, Benzaclin and Clindamycin) however I have been on this prescription for years with continuous breakouts. At least 3 years I would say. I have been taking the vitamins now for 4 months now, and it took about 2 weeks for me to see results. My success is probably a combo of the two, but I have to say the vitamins must be the main cause! Good luck all!
  5. Hi Everyone- I havent been on in a while, and that is becasue my acne is 100% under control. I wanted to share with everyone what is working for me. I am on topicals from the Dermo, but I also have been taking Vitamins from the Vitamin Shop. They are called "For Women- Skin, Hair and Nails." I originally started taking them becuase I was on Spironolactone (which did NOT work for me by the way). Spiro made my hair start to thin and fall out, so I went on these vitamins which have a high amount of
  6. I think you should try another Antibiotic. There arent any harms long term. I was on antibiotics for 9 years, and my skin was never perfect but controlled. Since then I have been breaking out worse. Tell her you need another antibiotic since you became immune to the Minocin. Topicals can only clear up people who have minor acne. I was on Duac for a year with no changes. Good luck!
  7. My hair has been shedding like crazy ever since I upped my spiro dose to 150 mg. My appt isnt until June 14th with the derm. Should I go off it or just wait? I thought Spiro was supposed to help with growth, not loss. Yikes!
  8. Hi All- I may be going on Accutane June 15th. Does EVERYONE get an initial breakout? I know it is quite common, however I hate to spend the entire month of June and July totally broken out. Plus I have a wedding mid July which I would like to be clear for. Should I wait to start till after the wedding? I heard the IB is usually 4 weeks! Thanks all for your help and support!
  9. Its super cheap with insurance... Only like 10 bucks for me! And that isnt the generic... Booo, not sure then sorry girl :(

  11. Hi Ladies! On average, when did your Spiro start working completely 100% Ive heard 3 months is the magic number. I am on my 8th week right now...
  12. Hey All- Anyone have a bronzer suggestion? I love Cargo in Medium but I only wear it on the weekends since it isnt oil free. During the week I wear Clinique Bronzer but I think it is too Reddish. I used to use Mac but that was before I had acne so now I prefer oil free. Any oil free good bronZers? I Heard good things about Stila too but its not Oil Free. Thanks ladies!
  13. Think about that one, everyone here is here for a reason!!! and that is because they have acne, or recently had acne. Anyone who is cured is off enjoying life!!!
  14. Hi Everyone- If you have been on Accutane... How long were you clear afterwards? I am weighing going on it since I am pretty clear on Spiro but not 100% and have bad headaches. Thanks all!
  15. Hi there, I am also on 100mg of spiro, on week 6 now i think, its really helped my skin a lot, practically no more oil at all now, which is also great for my hair!! I am not 100% clear as I still have some small white spots which are really stubborn but this drug has done wonders, love it! Hope you continue to get clear!! xx Thanks! I also thnk Spiro is working and looks good, but I also think that it will only work when you take it. I know if I go off I will breakout again. That is why I am c
