The Best And Worst Acne Prescription Medications

Aug 26, 2008
There are so many acne medications out there, and knowing which ones will work for you and which ones won't can be a difficult process. Do you simply walk into your local pharmacy or supermarket and find just any random acne prescription medications and purchase them, or do you do a bit of research beforehand, or perhaps ask some staff that work at the pharmacy which product works best? These are all common questions that acne sufferers ask.

The truth is, is that there's no definite and absolute acne medications that will work for you. That is why you need the advice of a trained health care professional, such as your dermatologist or doctor, in order to prescribe you the best available form of treatment. Your condition could be one of many - do you have cystic acne? Perhaps it's just a case of blackheads? Or do you have some form of chronic acne that can't be treated by conventional means?

Since many cases of acne are unique to the individual, one shouldn't just presume that all acne prescription medications do the same thing, because they don't. The ingredients within the medications can vary, and sometimes the medications may even go so far as to have bad, unwanted and unneeded side effects within certain individuals. It's therefore important that you discuss all this with your treating health care professional to ensure that you're purchasing the right form of medication.

Now, this isn't to say that most acne prescription medications are so bad that if you use them, something drastic will happen. Indeed there may be one or two medications that you shouldn't use if you can avoid them, however the vast majority of acne prescription medications have a specific purpose for different conditions. By ensuring that the treatment that you use is prescribed specifically for your condition, then you'll be more likely to be on your way to overcoming your case of acne.

So remember, seek the advice of health care professionals, discuss with them what risks you're prepared to take in order to get rid of your acne, and allow them to check over you just in case you need to be diagnosed with a specific form of chronic acne, which can't easily be treated by regular acne medication.

If you have any questions regarding acne treatment, or acne prescription medications, speak to your doctor. Just remember that like all things, taking the first step begins with a little initiative on your part.
