Hi everybody,

I am a 22 year old female.
I have been suffering from acne for 7 years of my life so far (more so when I turned 19).
I have tried everything.
Alesse makes me breakout alot! Ortho and Diane-35 make me very sick (nauseous 24/7).
I tried Accutane. It did wonders for my skin, but its effects only lasted about 1 year. The derm says he can't give me a second course because my acne is now moderate (not severe)!
My skin has been very bad of late - it seems like everytime i have a derm appointment, my skin clears up for just that one week (arrrgggh!).
Are there any good antibiotics (or oral medications) out there for people with moderate acne? Anything that works like Diane 35 or Ortho, without making me feel sick to my stomach?
I have heard of Spironolactone, Demulen, Doxycycline, Minocycline....
What works well?
I have a dermatologist appointment October 29 (so far away!). I'd like to learn all I can before speaking to him.
Thanks everybody.

If that is the case I would suggest taking pictures of yourself so that you can show them to your derm.
