- Wedding: May 2014
I do not have very bad acne, but do have some hormonal acne that flares up here and there. I have a lot of blackheads, some small bumps and then get a large bump or two every so often.
I went to the derm last week for another issue and also asked about clearing up my skin for the wedding. He looked at my skin and said it’s hormonal acne (I had 2 large bumps around my chin area) and prescribed me Doryx (Doxycycline Hyclate). They also gave me a coupon to get the prescription for $25 for a 3 month supply (it’s an expensive medicine, even with insurance).
The pharmacy is having an issue getting it filled because they need prior auth from the insurance. So since it’s taken a little while, Ive had to time to consider if I should even fill it and I’m wondering if anyone has used it and if it’s even worth it to try. Also, I’m wondering if anyone has used it and then as soon as they go off it, do you break out? Ideally, it would clear my skin up in the 3 months and get things leveled off so then afterward I wouldn’t need to continue taking it.
Any tips, reviews are appreciated!!!
