I'm currently taking Accutane and dianette pill When I'm on my break from pill my skin becomes much clearer then when I go back on pill I break out?

I'm currently taking Accutane and dianette pill When I'm on my break from pill my skin becomes much clearer then when I go back on pill I break out?

Acne: If you are still breaking out on Accutane, then why stay on Accutane. Dianette is not used in US and it is in fact banned in several European countries due to risk for serious complications. Acne is due to the androgen production and Dianette contains Cyproterone acetate which is a type of medicine called an anti-androgen for the Acne. Ask derm to re-eval your medications, especially Accutane. ...Read more

OK?: There are extended cycle pills on the market that skip the placebos on 3 packages and only have a placebo week every 4th package. The main problem with this is break thru bleeding. The real concern is the risk of sexually transmitted diseases. Even on the pill and taking them as prescribed, you should use condoms to decrease this risk. Be safe. ...Read more

Is the dianette contraceptive pill dangerous? , I've heard a lot of storys recently of the problems that it can cause and im getting quite concerned.

Depends: Experts agree that for most women, the benefits of birth control pills outweigh risks. Unplanned pregnancies expose women to many more risks than taking bcps usually does. There are a few medical conditions that increase risk enough that taking the pill would be a bad idea. History of blood clots & migraines with aura are 2 of them. If you're not sure about your risks, talk to your doctor. ...Read more

My skin is getting worse on the dianette acne pill. Side effect?

My skin is getting worse on the dianette acne pill. Side effect?

Dianette: It is highly unusual for Acne to be causing so much trouble at 44 and I don't understand how you are in Chicago and on dianette since it is banned in US and Canada as well as many other European countries, including France but not in UK for some reason. If you are getting worse ask your doctor to change your medication. ...Read more

Diagnosed pcos at 14 on yasmin/dianette to 28.Off pill since jan.Had break for 2yrs at 20.Should the early diagnosis&treatment reduce fertility probs?

Possibly: With pcos, the most important things that you can do on your own to maximize your chance of pregnancy include managing your weight and eating healthy. Beyond that, get some help with medication such as Clomid (clomiphene) or others when you are ready to try and get pregnant. And good luck. ...Read more

Hi,im looking to go back on the contraceptive pill mainly for breast growth and weight gain. i was wondering if dianette and yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) do this?

Hi,im looking to go back on the contraceptive pill mainly for breast growth and weight gain. i was wondering if dianette and yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) do this?

Oral birth control: At 18, your weight and breast size have not reached normal proportions of adulthood. Oral contraceptives in low doses (such as Yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) and others) will not effectively change your breast size or weight. You can try, but don't be disappointed if you do not see results to your liking. if you are sexually active, the "benefits" are limited to very secure birth control. ...Read more

Can you take dianette and Accutane at the same time?

Can you take dianette and Accutane at the same time?

Yes, but...: I am located in US, and meds are made in different combinations here . however from the classes , they would probably be okay .. but .. if you are on dianette it seems the anti androgen would halp acne as well (so maybe wait a few months (cycles ) to see if that is effective. if not , accutane has a large side effect profile ,and it would be easier and clearer (if side effects occur) if you ...Read more

The first week I stared taking 20mg Accutane and I was on my break from dianete. Spots cleared up now second week on dianette and Accutane break out?

I have been a derma-: tologist for 18 years and have never heard of dinette. But 20mg is a very low dose, I normally start my patients on 40. But it takes months potentially for you to be clear. If accutane is given for mild acne, it is not recommended ...Read more
