  1. Seems promising. Do a google search, and you can find more information on it. It's in phase II clinical trials right now, and it's purported to be as effective as low dose accutane without all the side effects. In fact, zileuton has a great safety track record. Below are excerpts from an article published in the Archives of Dermatology ( Vol. 139 No. 5, May 2003). A New Concept for Acne Therapy: A Pilot Study With Zileuton, an Oral 5-Lipoxygenase Inhibitor "A gradual and time-related reductio
  2. Hello everyone... and thanks for taking the time to read this. It's me again, posting yet another topic on, you guessed it, acne. I started taking DIANE 35 (DIANETTE) about 3 weeks ago and I don't know if I'm seeing any results yet. It's not any worse than before, which is good I hope. I have had rather oily skin for a long time and mild acne and I'm hoping that Diane 35 will take care of those problems, even if just a little bit. I'm 25 and, and at this point, having tried almost everything,

    any bcp suggestions?

    Since I'm nervous about the new generic YAZ and the fact that it hasn't been out a month and the company already admitted to LYING on the product label and I can't afford YAZ I think its time I try a new pill. I was on the generic Ortho Tri Cyclen before and that made me breakout and gave me a lot of other problems, so I don't think I want to go with that even though they don't have a generic for it anymore still worries me =/ So are there any other pills that anyone has tried that are approved

    Thoughts on BCP

    Hi Girls! Firstly, without making an essay out of it here is a quick run down of my acne/bcp history: Acne since I was about 14, progressed from mild to moderate about 16-17yo, not long after I turned 17 however it settled down. Still getting inflamed zits at this time, usually 1-2 at a time, and blackheads and such but definately improved. At 19 I went on Diane 35 for birth control (I actually only told the doc it was for birth control too - he must have taken one look at some of my remaini
  5. Hello there, Reading this message board has introduced me to Spironolactone for the very first time, and I think it could be precisely what I am looking for. I have hormonal acne, consisting of deep whiteheads and pustules around the mouth. A previous dose of accutane has taken care of the cysts (thank god!!). I have recently been prescribed both Diane 35 (bc pill) and stievamycin mild topical treatment. The stieva leaves my skin very thin and the whiteheads are terrible to pop, leaving me wit
  6. Heyy i was wondering if anyone could help me out. I just started taking diane 35 a week and a half ago......my skin had just recently ( 2 months or so prior to starting diane) began to break out and it was minor just a 2 or 2 pimples aong my jawline.....i had a blood test done and i had a hormonal imbalance due to which i wasnt getting my period reguraly hence the acne hence put on diane....... so now the problem is that since starting diane my skin has started brekingout like crazy!!!!!
  7. Hey im on diane 35...and i just got my period but I am still on teh pills that contain teh medication??? Should i take the sugar pills now, becaues my period has started or do i keep taking the pills in teh order stated. Also, this is the first month i have been on it. thanks!
  8. I've pretty much tried everything under the sun for my acne from the age of 16 - Tetracyclin, Benzamycin Gel, Minocin, Differin, Clindoxyl Gel, I'm currently using Diane 35 (OCP) for acne .. but I've had the worst breakout ever on it .. and now my skin is a mess .. Mind you, I've only been on it for 3 months .. but I feel like it's not really doing the job. I'm currently considering going on Accutane .. but I'm not really sure if my acne is severe enough to risk some of the side effects. I hav

    Oily skin on Yaz?

    Hi everyone, I'm on my third month on Yaz and after a horrible initial break out, my skin is finally getting clearer and less oily than it was before, BUT it is still oily for me. And that annoys me so much because when I was on Diane 35, which I had to stop taking because it made me sick , my skin was completely oil-free after just two weeks. So does anyone know if it takes more time for Yaz to get rid of all the oilyness, or is this just as good as it gets? Thank you!
  10. I have mild acne concentrated on my forehead, and also on my back, i have combination skin, so oil T-zone. My doctor just prescribed me Diane 35. I'm a little scared now after my experience with antibiotics. I was prescribed Minocin before, but I got horrible headaches and pigheadednesses. I don't know if the same would happen with Diane 35. and people have been complaining about weight gains and depression, so I don't know if I should get the drug. If anyone has had similar experiences and coul

    please answer if you can....

    So I am just wondering...for those of you ladies out there that cleared up completely during pregnancy (at least once)....what birth control do you use to control your acne and how effective is it? I'm asking b/c I've been trying to find a bcp that works for my particular type of hormonal acne (mine cleared up completely my entire pregnancy with my daughter). I've tried Diane 35 and it broke me out horribly. I'm thinking I need to try something else...but want to try to avoid the breakout if
  12. I'm sure most people who take a contraceptive pill containing oestrogen, have heard there's a slightly increased risk of breast cancer. And I'm sure everyone thinks that small risk isn't much worth worrying about.. I know that's what I thought. I was on Dianette/Diane 35 for about 5 years. Before that, I was on Marvelon for about 5 years and had the Depo Provera injection for about a year. All in all, I took some kind of 'pill' for 11 years. Dianette was the most recent. I'm now 29 years o
  13. hey everyone, im undecided about going on the pill to clear up my acne. Has it worked for anyone?? Does it help with scars/red marks?
  14. I started on Diane 35 a month ago and it has made absolutely no difference. I wasn't expecting it to clear my skin in 1 month but I thought there may be even a slight improvement. How long did it take everyone else to get it working?
  15. Danette


    I decided to stop taking Yasmin, or rather the generic version my derm prescribed me, after 6 months with absolutely no results whatsoever in my acne or oily skin, if anything, it left me with lots of scars from the horrible initial break out it gave me, and now I even have acne in places I never had before. Diane 35 did work for me but it made me SO sick I had to stop taking it. I honestly feel like dying. I don't want to go to work and I don't want to attend classes tomorrow, all I want to do
  16. I hear such great things about Diane 35 but its not available in the United States.. yet it seems to be available everywhere esle! Why isn't it here I wonder?
  17. Hi all, I've read quite a few of the Spiro threads in this section, including the big long one, but am still unsure about the answer to my question, so I thought I'd start a new thread. [background on my acne: I'm 28 and have had extremely oily skin with bad acne since my mid-teens. I was on Accutane four times from the age of 14 - 20 as well as every other topical and antibiotic treatment that was available. Finally at age 21 I went on Dianette/Diane 35 which had an amazing effect -- my ski

    Hormonal Acne Help

    hi guys i brought my blood test results to my dermatologist and she is convinced that my testosterone levels are slightly high (even though im on Diane 35) and they are the reason behind my monthly flare ups. So she suggested some dietary changes such as: consuming more organic soy products eating less animal products avoidind dairy eating flaxseed so my question is to ladies who have high testosterone like me:Do you guys did any dietary changes?Has it helped?What can i do about tha

    The pill

    HI, I saw my gyno. and derm. this week and it seems that my hormones are all over the place. I have a high level of androgens so they put me on the pill. However, to be honest, I am scared shitless! I've never used BCP and Im terrified of the side effects ( blood clots, heartattack, stroke..) I am actually on the virtue of crying because I dont know what to do. The doctors are pressuring me to take it not only for acne, but because I will be more prone to developing ovarien cysts/tumors. I was

    Diane 35

    Hey i was wondering if anybody has ever used this with success?? i was just given a prescription to it today...does anybody know if there is an initial breakout with this?? I asked about tetracycline (sp?) and the doctor said they dont really give that anymore, does anybody know why?
  22. Hey, anyone know the difference between Diane 35 and Diane 35 ED?? What does "ED" mean? Thanks in advance.
  23. Birth control pills have about a bazillion side effects. Most arent so good, but not everyone gets all of them... and some don't get any side effects apparently. I have tried every pill under the sun and every single one of them regardless of the dose gives me migraines. Never fails. These migraines are so bad that I puke, get vertigo, cant eat, etc and I have to miss work until it goes away. And these migraines are due to the estrogen withdrawel when I come off the pill for my little perio

    Update: Accutane Week 3

    Hi Guys, Elsa has kindly asked how i'm doing, so i've decided to do a post. I've finished close to 3 weeks of accutane already and have my bloodtest in a couple of days. Honestly, I've been doing pretty great. No initial breakout so far. I mean, I've had a couple of pimples (big whiteheads) big freakin deal! I've been through soooo much worse. I'm clear right now other than that, I have a lot of red marks but those are already fading. Plus, i've gotten used to using make-up so what's the big

    Should i go back on diane 35?

    hello all i'm new here! first post! i'm 17, i've had bad acne since i was about 11 and i started taking diane 35 around march last year, i was recommended to take the pill for three months, but skin didn't really improve the first three months, actually got worse, so i continued taking it for six, and by the end of the six months, september, my skin was COMPLETELY CLEAR! Experienced the happiest moments of my life with clear skin so, on my mom's advice (not good to take pills for too long,
