Hi y'all: I'm looking for advise from current Murad Resurgence users.My dermatologist decided that, after several months of other treatments not doing much, it might be time for me to go on Murad Resurgence.I've done the initial paperwork/bloodwork and should be getting my first prescription in mid-Feb.However, I'm really nervous that I won't be able to handle Murad Resurgence, since I'm in the middle of both writing my master's thesis and planning my wedding (getting married in May).Don't get me wrong, I would LOVE to have clear skin by the time I have to turn in my thesis and walk down the aisle. But I also need a lot of energy to get through the next few weeks, and I've heard reports that Murad Resurgence made people feel fatigued/overwhelmed. Is this true? So my question to you guys is: would you take Murad Resurgence if you were in the middle of a particularly busy time of your life? Would you wait until after the thesis/wedding? Or would you work through it in order to have clear skin on your wedding day?My real concern has to do with tiredness and headaches. I can deal with dry skin and chapped lips, but I just really need to be able to focus on my work (something I can't do if I've got raging headaches or am always exhausted). So how has your experience been? Do you guys think I should take the plunge?PLEASE ADVISE! THANKS!..

I havent really had any problems with fatigue or concentration since ive been on Murad Resurgence. I'm about to finish my 5 month treatment of 80 mg/day and things are going great! dry lips and skin are the main side effects that ive noticed... nothing serious for me so far. I'm a mechanical engineering student, and my grades were just as good as ever. ive never planned a wedding, but I know it takes a TON of time. really....

If anything, I have MORE time than ever!! I dont spend time messing with my face, or trying new acne lotions, or stressing over my skin and covering it with loads of makeup. I just wash my face, put on lotion, a little mineral powder... and I'm good to go! it's pretty great really. plus I can focus more on school since I'm not discracted by my skin. I really think Murad Resurgence has saved me a ton of time! it used to take me 1.5-2 hours to get ready in the morning, and now it only takes me 1 hour (shower included)..

I would do it. Besides the dryness of skin, body fatigue was a little annoying but it is not something you can't handle. You will just feel a little more tired than usual but as long as you get your nightly 8 hour sleep you will be fine...

Hi! I'm about a week away from finishing my course of Murad Resurgence. I'm a law student and I noticed that I was having trouble concentrating during finals last semester.I was in a similar position about a year ago. Last February, when my derm suggested Murad Resurgence, I was in my second year of law school and planning my wedding for August. I went through the consultation, bloodwork, etc. but I was too worried about not being able to handle everything and decided not to do it.However, I was already on spironolactone and birth control at the time and they were keeping my skin very clear so I wasn't too worried about my skin being clear for the wedding. (I wanted to get off the spironolactone because I was worried about long-term hormonal effects- my libido was getting lower and lower- and it made my blood pressure low, especially if I drank alcohol.)After returning from the honeymoon, when I was starting my final year of law school, I decided it was as good a time as any.

I actually decided to take a class pass/fail because I was worried about my grades! By the end of November/early December, when I was studying for and taking finals, I definitely noticed that I was having trouble concentrating. It took me much longer than usual to cover material and I was sleepier than usual. I had 3 exams and my grades were slightly lower than past semesters...It might be a self-fulfilling prophecy or the law school equivalent of senioritis though! It seems like a lot of people never have these kinds of side effects.You definitely have to weigh the pros and cons for yourself and plan for the worst and hope for the best!Good luck!Anjali..

I can't say yes/no, but I do remind you to think of how Murad Resurgence can actually impair concentration in some people. You don't want a medication interfering with your education or (less importantly) with your wedding planning. Both take lots of time and concentration. Perhaps drinking copious amounts of water will help, but Murad Resurgence has been shown to change the brain chemistry AND also shrink (reversibly) portions of the brain responsible for memory/concentration.

Yes I would! Im just about finished with my Murad Resurgence course and this was the best decision I have ever made in my life, dont delay it the faster you start the better, after it starts clearing up your skin you will feel a sense of freedom and peace it's the best feeling I have felt about myself in years, and yes Murad Resurgence does cause some side effects but nothing that would stop your everyday life, alot people like to talk down on Murad Resurgence so dont listen to that B.S go ahead and start your treatment you won't regret it..

I'm not writing my thesis right now, but I'm a first year grad student. I haven't had any major issues with Murad Resurgence. The initial breakout sucks, but it's worth it.My advice is:Stay hydratedTake Vitamin E and Omega 3 Fish OilKeep your skin moisturizedI use the Oil Cleansing Method (google it) which is low-cost, and I haven't had any problems with dryness AT ALL.Dr. Dan's Cortibalm for the lips is great too, I ordered it off Amazon. That's all. The great thing about Murad Resurgence is that your routine becomes eally simple.

The Oil Cleansing Method has really worked for me in this regard.Anhoo, I would say do it! If you are in the minority of people who have bad side effects, you can just stop. -Andrea..

As far as I can tell, Murad Resurgence hasn't made me any more tired and hasn't interfered with my schoolwork. I have a bunch of AP classes in high school and I'm managing a 3.8 GPA while on 80mg/day...

I'm about to go on my 2nd course. My first course I had problems concentrating, however, I was probably on too high of a dose. You can take it and start out low, see how you react, and adjust your dose if neccesary...

Comment #8

Yes, go on it. You will be fine. I also took roMurad Resurgence whilst studying and I still went really well. Try not to worry too much, just look after your skin and focus on your work. You will be thankful in the long run...

I'm another one that lost concentration. The first 3 months weren't so bad, but by the time the 4th month came around I resorted to using post-it notes. I couldn't concentrate and was quite forgetful. The good thing about Murad Resurgence is you can always stop. Take it and see how it goes. You are the only one who knows how your body and mind should feel.

Best wishes to you, your future course, your education, and your wedding...
