  • Question about Acne

    Is there something other than Roaccutane that works for acne? My daughter has been on Akamin and is now on Diane and nothing seems to be working. I'm concerned about the side affects of Roaccutane especially as she suffers from anxiety. Would really appreciate some input. Thanks

    Antibiotics like minocycline (as in Akamin) and oral vitamin A therapy like isotretinoin (as in Roaccutane) are commonly used for moderate to severe cystic acne. Hormone treatment with the anti-androgen plus oestrogen such as in OCP like Diane are also an option in females.
    These systemic treatments take some time to work well, a variable that may be 1-4 months, according to the treatment and the specific dose used. I would not write them off as 'not working' for your daughter unless I was satisfied that an adequate therapeutic trial was allowed - both dose and duration - sometimes a trial is inadequate and limited by the emergence of side-effects.

    Prescription compound creams can include many ingredients that target the obstructive cause and inflammatory consequences of acne, and together with in-clinic treatments, will avoid any risk of systemic side-effects such as you express for Roaccutane.
