  1. I just started week 4 on the regimen and I am completely and utterly discouraged. Not only has my acne gotten worse since I have started the regimen, but it is the worst it has ever been in my life. I dealt with the dryness and the flakes for the first three weeks, but all I have no is just huge, painful, red, inflamed pimples that are overtaking my left cheek, left jawline, and right chin/jawline area.

This made me very upset as the longest she can put me on the medication is 6 months, and she said there are better results if you can take a higher dosage. Then, a call came this morning that my iPledge somehow got deleted and I'm not registered anymore. My window for
