Actually i was on this medication 5 years ago when i had first pimples. So it worked and cleared all my acne. I know all the side effects and defect baby... So after 3 years it came again and i was on all different kind of medication. I was even on birthcontrol pills too. Nothing has worked like nimegen. In between i didn't have time to see my doctor in singapore. So i went there a week ago and my doctor prescribed me this again for 3 month treatment. I just forgot to ask what specific day i should start taking it. I also forgot that what day i was started taking it before. For female is it the first day of the menstruation or the 5th day to start? Is any female on this medication please answer

This medication is extremely dangerous and causes birth defects to unborn babies. You are supposed to be on 2 forms of birthcontrol to even get a prescription for it. It has severe side effects, such as causing crohns disease, liver toxicity and severe depression please Google it, you will see it is extremely dangerous, and should only be used if all other treatments for acne have failed and you are aware of all the health risks. In the US, attorneys are suing the manufacturer of it because it causes so many health blems. Since you will have to be on 2 forms of birth control to take it anyy, at least try birth control pills without the medication for a few months. Mbirth control pills often stop acne on their own.
