Is Daphne Pills Effective Acne Pill
Topicals: Topical benzoyl peroxide works pretty well, topical retinoic acid derivatives and topical Clindamycin from your physician are pretty good as well. Nobody, especially not the healthtap team, wants to take oral medication or thinks health comes from a pill bottle. But if you have nasty acne & you want real results, we can offer you more than topical stuff. ...Read more
Which ones?: It's very difficult to answer broad open ended questions. Let's assume that you're referring to prescription acne medications. By definition, all have to effective to be approved by FDA for use in States. There has to be some level of safety too. However, some are safer than others. For instance, isotretinoin is safe for female but poses significant birth defect risk. Over-the-counter non-prescrpt ...Read more
Is Valette very similar to Diane35 birth control pill? Are both equally effective to treat mild acne?
Depends on person: Acne treatment varies with the individual, no two are alike (this applies to almost any disease and treatment for a disease or condition, otherwise every disease would only have one treatment option). Try and see if the one you have works. It may take a few months. Then consider trying the other if you are not happy with the result. Neither will work as well without good skin care ...Read more

What are the most effective pills to control acne? Is Diane35 safe? Is yasmin (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) safe?
Are birth control pills taken for acne like Estelle 35-ED/Diane 35-ED just as effective for birth control as other combination pills?
Yes: It's perfectly effective as a birth control due to the estrogen. The main difference is that the other hormone is typically a Progesterone in other combination pills. The second hormone in Estelle-35ED is an anti-androgen hormone called cyproterone acetate which decreases the level of androgens you are exposed to/able to respond to and thereby decreasing oily skin and acne. ...Read more
I'm terrified my acne can return once off acutane I'm almost done acutane treatment. What birth control pill is MOST EFFECTIVE for ACNE?
I'm on Aviane birth control pills and also taking doxycycline for my acne. How much less effective does doxycycline make my birth control? I'm nervous
What treatment should I take for acnes..... I don't wanna use pills I don't like them what should I do?
Yes: Isotretinoin is believed to be capable of stopping the growth of long bones if the patient has not achieved his/her full height. This is something to consider in prescribing it. Most acne can be managed either with topical benzoyl peroxide alone, or if more severe or on the trunk, adding a second rx such as systemic tetracycline or any of several others that won't stop growth. ...Read more
Maybe.: I'm making some assumptions here - that you're talking about antibiotic (not birth control) pills, and that your acne acts up only around the time of your menstrual cycle. In those cases, some people can keep their acne under control by stopping the antibiotic midcycle; but you should only try it with the knowledge and supervision of your dermatologist. ...Read more
Yes: The herbals and supplements will disappoint you. Your physician has antibiotics for the milder cases and can refer you for isotretinoin; the latter is not cheap, pleasant or risk-free but is very effective. The oral contraceptive pill can end acne if you're a lady who can take it. Spironolactone is the other agent that folks sometimes forget. ...Read more
Yes: Assuming you have good hygeine there are great topicals and regular chemical peels are very helpful. Blue light or blu/red light using ala is also helpful. Worth a try if you don't want peals but it might take the oral medications too if too far along. ...Read more
Often does: If the oral contraceptive pill is otherwise right for a woman, it may also clear acne. Exactly how it works is a minor mystery but is related to its reducing androgenic hormones. Occasionally some versions of "the pill" may make acne flare instead. Trial and error may be required. ...Read more
Yes: I prefer to start with topicals, but often we need to add oral medications, such as the oral contraceptive pill for women who can take it, and the right macrolide or tetracycline antibiotic. Dermatologists have the big guns such as accutane. Nobody should have to live with bad acne in the 21st century. ...Read more
Only as adjunct: The oral medications for acne that are actually effective are some of the antibiotics (famously tetracycline) and a vitamin a derivative (isotretinoin). You are welcome to explore different herbal remedies, but don't let this get in the way of treating this serious, chronic, potentially devastating illness. Best wishes. ...Read more
Acne: Acne is a multivariable skin disorder. There are many antibiotic pills that help it come under control. A vitamin compound called nicomide may be of benefit. Topicals can also be used. If however, you only want one pill, the one that will give you the most predictable results, Accutane is the one. Unfortunately, it is the pill with the most likely to cause unwanted side effects. Ask your md. ...Read more
DependsAnswerDepends: For some people they work and others not at all. If give them a couple of months befor giving up. You must remember the pills alone will never work if you do not have strict hygeine! ...Read more
Treat separately: A host of medications are more or less effective for true migraine, which is brutal and which no one should have to suffer. I start acne treatment with topical Clindamycin with or without a retinoic acid derivative, and move to an oral antibiotic only if this fails. Good luck and keep up your proactive approach. ...Read more
Acne: The severity of your acne or hirsutism will determine how long you should remain on treatment. Several months are generally required with continuation for another 3 to 4 months after the acne or hirsutism is controlled. Further treatment with Estelle -35 ED can be initiated if the conditions recur. It is likely that longer treatment will be required for treating the symptoms of polycystic ovary syndrome. ...Read more
Pills and topicals: The pills should not interfere with your gentle magic facial, but your skin could be more sensitive than usual. Please be careful. ...Read more
Common: It's very common, but not necessarily normal. ...Read more
Not necessarily: Acne is a very complex disease and may require a complicated treatment regiment to produce any improvements and may require some time to determine the proper combo atop of treatment modalities. It would be best to meet with a dermatologist to help plan and prescribe a skin care routine with possible oral or topical prescriptions. ...Read more
