Is this the only acne medication you are on? Sometimes it takes about 6-8 weeks to say any results and keep in mind acne is a chronic condition, the medication will not "cure" it but will help make it manageable. If not improvement or actually worse after 8 weeks then consider follow-up with the doctor
