I have been reading all your comments with interest. My daughter (aged 20) was referred to a dermatologist about 18 months ago, and the subject of this treatment came up. I had read horror stories in the press and so agreed we would try other treatments first. Unfortunately we have bought every lotion and potion available and nothing is working. So now are to give the treatment a go. I suffered with terrible acne myself, but luckily it cleared when I was about 17. This is obviously not going to be the case with my daughter. Obviously nervous for her - as it sounds like a VERY powerful drug and noting the comments about the dry lips, skin, etc. Coincidentally I was talking to a work colleague this week, how mentioned that his girlfriend took it. I spoke to her and she told me that it changed her life. So I guess it is good for some and not others. She did however mention that vaseline provides more of a barrier rather than a moisturiser, and suggested carmex for lips. Can anyone recommend a good moisturiser for the skin. I was told that it doesn't hurt to start moisturising in advance. What worries me most is the depression, aches, pains, which some people seem to get...presuming this doesn't happen with everyone ? Also - my daughter wears contact lenses. Does anyone out there on the drug have trouble with their lenses ? It will be a small price to pay if she has to revert to glasses for a while.
Any comments/advise gratefully received ?
