I am 20 years old and I haven't had a problem with acne until this year. Lately it's become an obsession- staring into the mirror, worrying about how I look, and my face constantly itching and hurting.

I went to a dermatologist for the first time on Saturday and it was incredibly overwhelming. He told me that on a scale of 1-10, my acne is an 8 and that I should have come in months earlier.

He prescribed me BenzaClin and Ziana (topical acne products) and Adoxa (tablets to swallow).

[I]I have my fingers crossed, hoping for the best.[/I]

[B]He asked me to research Accutane and consider taking it. I have heard so many horrible things about it, I was wondering what experiences everyone else has had.

My dermatologist also thinks that the Depakote I take for migraines might be causing my acne. [B] Does anyone know of Depakote causing acne? [/B]

I am crying right now because I am so frustrated. Depakote has helped me so much with my migraines (I used to get them everyday, now only 1-2 times a week). And now I find out it may be causing my acne.


If anyone has any suggestions, please reply. It is much appreciated. Thank you so much.
