Can I quit taking pills midcycle? Acne.

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.

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
