Re: Lipoxygenase Inhibitors (reduces sebum & inflammation) - Zyflo/Zileuton & Boswellia
Yeah, I went down that road a few monhs ago. Did lots of research and talking with people on another message board. Boswellia didn't do too much for me. Zyflo isn't currently on the market for acne (it is for asthma) but I asked a MD about this and he said taking it isn't practical. You need to take it 3 or 4 times per day on an empty stomach. After trying boswellia I went on accutane and I'd recomend it. My case wasn't too bad but very persistant. And no I don't have prescription coverage either but I said to myself...is it worth 2 or 3 thousand dollars to get rid of it?...Absolutley, if someone told me they could get rid of it I'd give them $20,000 (not that I have that much, but I'd find it). Fortunatley it will only cost ~$2,000 rather than $20,000.
