  1. I asked my derm & pharmacist about the best time to take the pill if it's once a day. The both said that the drug reaches it's peak after around 8 hours & they prefer you too be awake when it is peaking, although you can take it at night if the side effects are too bad. I stick to the morning or after lunch. If get bumped up to two a day I'll go with AM & PM.

I wash the pad which presses against the forehead regularly but it seems make little difference. Does anyone know if any way of lessening this effect, maybe by using a bandana underneath the helmet or something? Cheers guys...

  10. Hey, I've been using products from the Acne Treatment Clinic with some sucsess for around a year & a half & was wandering if anyone has used their products. They have a bunch of products, of which I use 10% Benzoyl Peroxide wash, Extra Streangth Cleanser, 5% Salicylic Acid, 10% Benzoyl Peroxide Medication. I also use their SPF 30 sunscreen & moisteriser which is FAB. The products are not cheap, but last a long time (I spend around 30-40 UK Pounds per month + shipping from Californi
