Post My acne dilema

Well i have been on minocycline and tazorac for 3 months now and im a whole lot better but not clear. I go back to the derm in a month and in a way i almost hope my face doesnt get any better cause then maybe i could go on accutane and be clear instead of messing with topicals and antibiotics forever. I heard of people who have like severe lip dryness after 5 years of being off accutane. Like so bad they cant talk for long periods of time. Has anyone else heard of this or experienced it? Are there any other side affects that can go on after treatment is stopped?

Hi, If your truly fed up of using all these different types of products don't wait for the derm to offer you roaccutane request for it if they have a problem with giving it to you they will let you know but other than that i dont think they should have any problem as it is a very effective drug. As i know the roaccutane symptoms (if you was to experince any) are not long term they may last for longest a month after coming off the product but still the symptoms should go once the drug is out of you system

Hope this was some help- REMEMBER dont hold back if you want roaccutane go for it !
