I'm a 19 year old femal and I am on 50mg once daily, I started on it 2 and a half weeks ago and I am seeing no improvement, and it's actually getting so much worse. My acne was never really bad but I would always have a few pimples on my face, now I wake up with at least 3 BIG new pimples every morning. The doctor also gave me differin gel to use to spot treat pimples to speed up the process, but it does nothing. I am due to check in at the doctors after 6 weeks but I can't go another month until then looking like this, I don't even want to show my face in public, my skin has never been this bad. How long does it take to work???
This may be a late response for you so sorry but I am at 6 weeks of taking this for my acne and I started of with mild acne and now it's terrible, moderate acne, new spots daily I won't be seen dead without covering up my skin it's terrible! So I've taken my last one today no more for me! I have a feeling it works a lot better for those with much worse acne by viewing the reviews, I'm gutted it has not improved for me but worsened! I have 16 days left and I can't continue like this so I feel your frustration, hope your skin has either improved or improves, it may work for you but for me it has not:)
