In brief: Usually well
In most people it works remarkably well.
Stopping the med is usually for some other reason. Give it a try but expect your insurance company to substitute some other brand. It shouldn't matter where acne is concerned. It may take your body up to three months to adjust to the new hormones. Remember they are never a substitute for safe sex practices.
