Hey, we all know how you feel. It's so hard when derms don't really listen to you or respect your opinions. Try to think positive; something will work for you. About the pills, I don't think Alesse is high enough in dosage to have a curative effect on acne. I've heard ortho tri-cyclen is best for that, although like you I had bad side effects from that. Anyway you should ask your derm I guess, but I've heard people should use Alesse who has nausea problems with stronger pills, but not people who want help with acne. About Azelex, I'm on it too. Don't expect miracles over night. It takes a few months. On the brighter side, it's pretty mild and you can wear it under makeup. It can itch if you put it directly on your face after you squeeze at your skin (sorry to be gross, but this is my nightly ritual) so try to rinse your face with cold water first to soothe any irritation before you apply the Azelex.

Good luck and feel better.
