Murad Resurgence could be the worst decision you ever make in your life. It's like if your hanging out with friends and someone tried to get you to do heroin. Think about it. Think about the risks, versus just living with acne. You need to have really, really bad acne to even consider taking Murad Resurgence. There is no safe magic pill, without screwing up your whole life.

Anything too good to be true usually is. Before you think that your life might get better if you had clear skin, think about the permanent side effects first. Would you risk having those instead of acne? They could be a thousand times worse than acne. I held the ipledge book in my hands, dreaming of having clear skin, but I realized that this drug can destroy the human body physically and mentally. You think your acne is making you fall apart? Try Murad Resurgence and see what happens then.

I have a life, and I wouldn't throw it away because I struggle to deal with my acne. I urge everybody to realize that you are gambling with everything good left in your life. Acne can take away some things, but Murad Resurgence just might take away EVERYTHING you love about life. Don't gamble with drugs...STAY AWAY FROM Murad Resurgence. Life is hard, and sometimes there is no magic pill, and you just have to be tough and deal with it..

Your question was: Don't risk ruining your life....

So you have no experience with this drug, is that right?thanks for the input anyway...

Comment #1

Now were comparing Murad Resurgence to heroin ? this is getting out of hand. seriously just go away. I suggest YOU think about the amount of lives Murad Resurgence has changed for the better, including mine. yes ipledge lists extensive side effects, but so does every other drug. they have to put every possible side effect for legal reasons. to put this into perspective, look up the side effects for ibuprofen (advil,tylenol etc.).

Ive never met anybody that took advil and ended up with rashes, ringing in the ears,, abdominal pain, nausea, diarrhea, constipation or heart failure. thats right, heart failure is a listed side effect for ibuprofen. and I have yet to meet anybody that has had Murad Resurgence ruin there life. I know easily 20 people in person that have taken Murad Resurgence and it worked to perfection. only on internet forums do I see people bashing Murad Resurgence.

So why are you bashing it ? what went through your head that made you think it's a good idea to come bash Murad Resurgence, and tell people not to take it and to " stay away from Murad Resurgence " ? ive been on three high dose courses of Murad Resurgence and I'm perfectly fine. my two sisters went on Murad Resurgence as well, and a few of my friends. we all turned out fine, acne is now a thing of the past for us. but apparently we are some type of rare freaks who have resistance to Murad Resurgence side effects which is why we turned out fine. seriously, give me a break.

But it's very rare, and assuming that your going to get rare side effects is just stupid. how about lets not fly in airplanes, theres a chance it could crash. why stop there ? lets never go outside during storms, we might get struck by lightning ! how does this kind of logic make any sense ??honestly, I'm convinced all these anti-Murad Resurgence posts are the same person with different accounts...

Comment #2

The side effects you heard about are really very very very highly exaggerating. All that shit you read about Murad Resurgence 98% does not happen. Mostly you just feel dryness which is what you want and all you have to do is just moisturize. Its not like no heroin. I have life long severe acne that gets worse each year. I would have to take Murad Resurgence courses the rest of my life every time one whears off and Sometimes the effects do not last to long sometimes it lasts a very long time.

The only thing that does than Murad Resurgence is a shit load of money on many different highly advance treatments conbine with expensive topicals and good sleep eating and stress methods, If money is ever a problem I have to go on other course of Murad Resurgence cause theres nothing else. Acne took every godam fucking thing a way and cause so much fucking pain as to be unthinkable I am lucky to be alive after so much shit with acne. I can not live with acne EVER.Just because you might heard about a suicide that they say is maybe Murad Resurgence related. Who saids thats Murad Resurgence. For so many years millons and millons of people have takeing Murad Resurgence it has been a god beloved blessing for the most severe and desperate cases.

Acne and acne scars itself causes suicides and I could have been one cause it hurts that much. I am here to day only cause of advance treatments and knowing theres Murad Resurgence to come to my rescue. Waaaaaay to many people thank Murad Resurgence for saving their life cause really mostly everything else can't change to much. No matter what anyone has said about acctuane and try to bring fear in me I never listen and I'm so sorry I did not know about in the beginning. If I did I could have save myself so much suffering if I took it form the very beginning.The truth is Murad Resurgence is beautiful conpare to the fucking misery of acne.MostExtreme..

Comment #3

Wow it's people like you that are the reason why hundreds of thousands of people are scared to go on Murad Resurgence and never have clear skin...

Comment #4

I wouldn't say it's that rare to experience side effects, but your point is understood. an opinion is an opinion. let's just respect it and move on. no need to defend something one might be opposed to, we're all different...

Comment #5

Lol. this is ridiculous....Murad Resurgence has side effects just like any other drug.but if people have tried EVERYTHING and they still have bad skin, can you blame them for wanting to boost their self esteem? i'm going on Murad Resurgence monday, and I can't wait...

Comment #6

This is like saying ice cream tastes bad when you never even had it before.= =It might be bad for some, but you make it sound like the end of the world...

Comment #7

Thanks tech99 Murad Resurgence is wonderful and I always feel hope cause Murad Resurgence exist to give me time to enjoy my life cause all that other shit does not do anything. I hope no one listen to this very very highly exaggerating post...

Comment #8

It's actually nothing like saying that, that was ridiculous. respect his/her views and move on. you all are acting like kids. proceed...

Comment #9

Remag you should not be talking!!! You have never been on the drug, and the chances of getting a serious side effect is just like any other drug. Acne has been ruining my life(I can't even go to the beach without thinking people are talking about how much acne I have on my entire body)...

Comment #10

I'm not talking about people with very severe acne, (they should take it), but people who have moderate severe acne or anything under that. Look at your face and if it's as bad as it gets then Murad Resurgence is probably worth it. But thats only if it's very severe. And it IS a bad idea to take if you don't need it. Stop being a bad influence on people, I'm trying to tell them not to give up and do drugs, and all you are doing is telling people who dont really need Murad Resurgence to try it... "its not that bad"...YES IT IS.

Just because it worked for you doesn't mean it hasn't ruined peoples lives. IT HAS. Get your facts straight.You don't even know what it does to the human body. It might permanently damage your body for the rest of your life. They don't even know WHY Murad Resurgence cures acne! They know it shrinks glands and oil production, but why after you stop taking it does your acne not come back? Nobody knows, it's a big risk to take drugs like Murad Resurgence.

You may be fine now...give it a few years and you might just regret ever taking this drug. Who knows?..

Comment #11

But .....what do you mean???Have YOU tried it?I just used the "pro-drug" logic everyone for Murad Resurgence is using, just because I haven't TRIED Murad Resurgence doesn't mean I don't know what I'm talking about. I'm the correct one. Murad Resurgence is dangerous. There are far worse things than acne that Murad Resurgence could cause. It's true...

Comment #12

LSD, fucking LSD I'm an exdrug addict and all those godam drugs are sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much worse then Murad Resurgence would ever be. If a person is upset by even mild or moderate acne and they ask if they should go on Murad Resurgence. I say go for it it will clear it up an make you happy...

Comment #13

I think you need to do some more research.....

Comment #14

Its been said again and again that in most cases, severity of acne doesnt matter. the emotional effects that acne has are still just as damaging. how is LSD a thousand times safer then Murad Resurgence ?? where do you get these numbers from ? making things up just makes you look stupid. I'm sure Murad Resurgence has ruined lives, but for every life ruined I'm sure it has cured 1000 people. hey look, I can make up facts just like you. however mine is probably alot closer to the truth.i can tell that your some kid who just typed Murad Resurgence and read a wikipedia page and then claims hes done research and knows what hes talking about.

But until then go away...

Comment #15

I seriously doubt Murad Resurgence has ever made anyone jump out a window because they believed they could fly.And honestly, yes, I have done LSD. When I was a stupid experimental teenager. And I have been on Murad Resurgence. NOT EVEN FUCKING CLOSE...

Comment #16

Do some more research? I did both of them and LSD is a fucking nightmare with just one try. An Murad Resurgence pill once or twice a day was like something extra with lunch or dinner with good thoughts towards the future...

Comment #17

Wow, thinking you can fly isn't bad at all UNLESS YOU DO IT. Its nothing more than a thought....and your getting way off topic. Im talking about permanent physical side effects. Guess what...there hasn't been ONE physical damaging side effect ever found from LSD, but Murad Resurgence has hundreds. In fact go look it up right now...seriously, if you want to compare Murad Resurgence side effects to lsd, you already lost.LSD doesn't damage your body. Saying that you were a stupid teenager is ironic because now you take Murad Resurgence which you probably gave just as little thought before you did it...

Comment #18

I'm not the one comparing a a retinoid to a hallucinogen. LSD stays in your fucking spinal chord and can give you flashbacks, recurrent depression, and can lead to BRAIN DAMAGE. Just like acid can. Not everyone experiences this, just like not everyone experiences the side effects of Murad Resurgence.It just seems so silly to compare the two. There is nothing positive about taking a drug like LSD. Murad Resurgence improves peoples lives. END...

Comment #19

I was a dumb fuck 9 and 10 years ago doing drugs as a way to escape the depression of acne when all I needed was Murad Resurgence but I diding know. LSD eats your fucking brain more and more you look like shit and start to think like shit and it is a permanent side effectYeah you do think you can fly or do some stupid shit that can cost you your life and I do not think thats funny in any way...

Comment #20

People who are supporting are generally people who have only just recently taken Murad Resurgence or see it as a last option. You want it to be safe, so you convince yourself it is safe.Like the guy says, do your fucking research, this shit is dangerous and if you think otherwise you are ignorant simple as that. He expressed his highly accurate opinion. You guy's are just trying to convince yourselves you are making the right choice.LSD and Coce are far safer than Murad Resurgence, in terms of the way they have the potential to alter the body. I understand what you mean by making you feel invincible etc but alcohol does just the same thing.Murad Resurgence cannot be compared to fucking ibuprofin and pain killers, jesus christ.Used in chemotherapy is all you need to know about isotretinoin...

Comment #21

Most psycho-active drugs such as LSD do indeed leave permanent physical damage to your body. More often than not, it permanently changes the way your neutrons communicate with each other. Parts of your brain enlarge and other parts shrink. Remember that your brain cells are very unlikely to renew beyond infancy so any damage is permanent. This is why there is a field of medicine called NEUROLOGY and they are PHYSICIANS. Just because you cannot physically see the damage does not mean it does not exist.

People such as yourself often find faults with things and people that are successful because you perceive the world as "nothing can be this good" and "good things must have a catch to it." I believe you are inexplicably fearful of Murad Resurgence simply because it's such an effective drug. Just look at all the criticism of all the blockbuster drugs out there. Perhaps people like you should just recognize that this medication is successful because it gives people what they want.Can Murad Resurgence cause permanent physical changes? It better, that's why I'm taking it. Are these changes desireable? Of course, that is why I'm taking it. Are changes always bad? Hell no.And as to your comment about no one understanding how or why Murad Resurgence works.

I am one of those who read through the entire detailed medication description before taking any prescription drug and ALL of the drugs I've taken so far say "it is not completely clear how *** works". Modern pharmacology focuses on the effect and safety of medication instead of the biochemical mechanism. Statistics prove whether a drug is useful/dangerous, not step-by-step chemical description. The positive results from Murad Resurgence and it's 20+ years of safety history speaks for itself. It certainly caused serious problems for some out there but overall statistically it has been a very good drug.If you are suffering from such anxiety of Murad Resurgence, you don't have to take it..

Comment #22

I knew somebody would back me up, thanks. And if you took lsd to escape then that is your biggest mistake. If you were intelligent you would know that it can be the best thing you ever do in life, because it is strong enough to cure alcohol and heroin addicts. The psychological therapy that lsd can give to some people is very valuable and life-changing. You were a little kid and you took it to get f'd up and escape reality, just like you took Murad Resurgence to escape. Anybody who thinks everyone should try Murad Resurgence is a moron, and like lamarr said, you already took it and that is why you are afraid to think negatively of it. Because it's too late...

Comment #23

Remag42, you are clearly misinformed. I know a lot of people have mentioned this but, Murad Resurgence and heroin in the same sentence?! are you currently shooting up right now? sure Murad Resurgence may have some severe side effects but they are extremely rare. saying that I have had no side effects other than dry skin is purely anecdotal but I know many others that going on Murad Resurgence was one of the best decisions they have made...

Comment #24

I am not arguing that Murad Resurgence is safe. I know that there are many potential side effects. But saying that an illegal drug is safer than Murad Resurgence is ridiculous.I have seen first hand what LSD can do to people. Club drugs put holes in your fucking head. And you never know exactly what is in them. One of my best friends used to take them quite frequently end ended up having a fucking stroke at the age of 18.NOT SAFER THAN Murad Resurgence. NOT NOT NOT...

Comment #25

[/quote]If you are suffering from such anxiety of Murad Resurgence, you don't have to take it. But I think it is very irresponsible of you to come into a public forum and posting erroneous information so that others can share your anxiety.[/quote]It is much more irresponsible to go around saying everyone should try Murad Resurgence. People should only take it if they need it...only very severe acne. If you think people with moderate acne should take it because of emotions, then they would most likely have depression on the drug because they couldn't handle it from the beginning. I wouldn't take the risk...

Comment #26

If you have not tried taking Murad Resurgence I do not think that you need to be starting a thread talking about how bad it is for you. EVERY Murad Resurgence USER HAS TO READ THE IPLEDGE BOOK, we are all well aware of the side effects. I am on Murad Resurgence and I am scared to even think what my face would look like had I not taken the drug. EVERY DRUG HAS SIDE EFFECTS! For those looking into taking a course of Murad Resurgence please do not listen to this rant. Decide for yourself!!!!!..

Comment #27

Club drugs are bad. In fact most illegal drugs are. But psychedelics are the safest out of them all. If you think just because something is illegal that makes it evil? Don't you question authority? I guess you aren't intellectual enough to ever do something like that. You probably think alcohol is safer than pot because it's legal. WRONG.

It's safer than alcohol by a mile. LSD is much safer than Murad Resurgence. Legality doesn't automatically make it okay or not, that's called NOT THINKING LOGICALLY...

Comment #28

I smoke pot every day. You're very presumptuous. And I'm gonna go ahead and assume that you perceive yourself as an intellectual after making a statement like that. That's laughable...and very arrogant! And I can't believe I'm being accused of thinking illogically when you shitheads are arguing in favor of a hallucinogen over a closely monitored medical drug. Both have horrible side effects, but only one of the two can be managed by a professional...

Comment #29

I didn't want to write in this thread seeing where it is going....... You can't put heroin and Murad Resurgence in the same league- they are 2 different drugs for different purposes. Heroin has no cause at all and it's only in this world to ruin people wheras Murad Resurgence is developed meant for acne. Besides the amount of deaths caused by Heroin either by overdose or psychlogically I'm pretty sure surpasses Murad Resurgence. Nothing is worse then death I suppose you agree?The second part I highlighted seems to show me that you are trying to coerce people into thinking that Murad Resurgence is 100% unsafe and it will 100% cause the terrible side effects which is absolutely not true.I feel this thread is really redundant in this forum because people here are already on Murad Resurgence and it's definite the moment you start this, you will get a lot of flaming. I understand that you are trying to warn us but the fact that you haven't tried Murad Resurgence yourself have already diminished your chances of speaking.

Those who suffered and are trying to warn those here are already getting a lot of negative responses needless to say you.I hope you can see what I'm trying to tell you and where this thread is going...

Comment #30

When I see someone in the street who has rosacea across their cheeks, some deep acne scars, ruddy skin tone, hairloss (there is a specific form of tane hairloss I can spot a mile off) and dark rings round their eyes. I know they have probably taken Murad Resurgence if they have no active acne and they are still young.I have seen people recover much better from drug adictions and actually look healthy again, trust me I know a couple people at my uni who took tane and they look very sick now.... the things I listed above are common post tane issues.The recreational drugs just don't alter the body in the same way as an extremely high vitamin A overdose!!..

Comment #31

Actually visit the Murad Resurgence action forum. There is nothing worse than living with chornic debilitating issues, that completely stop you living a normal life. Often the only thing stopping you from suicide is the selfishness of it. Death is often an easy way out. Don't get me wrong I am not suicidal and will never do that, but it would be so much easier....Seriously guys go and visit the Murad Resurgence action forum you will see how so many people feel post tane...

Comment #32

I know long term effects of Murad Resurgence I ask real people who have takeing it one nearly 30 years ago one 12 years ago. I took mine more then 7 years ago I even loaded myself up with very high powerful antibiotics to fight off this fucking acne and I do not as well as anyone of this people have any damage done to this day. To anyone who could dare say LSD is safer you are really really Ignorant beyond belief. You are talking to someone who done all this shit all ready. I just wish one Murad Resurgence course lasted forever. But I feel glad it's here to save my ass...

Comment #33

I said the long term effects from LSD are in no where near comparible to the possible long term effects of Murad Resurgence "in terms of the way they alter the body".You cannot compare the two, sure one may kill more people than the other, but I can promise you this much. The potential long term suffering induced by Murad Resurgence is far worse than the potential long term suffering induced by recreational drug use...

Comment #34

I'm not on Murad Resurgence BUT I do know some people who are. Look the thing is people on this board are not stupid. I am sure they aren't just gonna jump the gun and get on Murad Resurgence. They know the risks and even though they are rare some of the more serious side effects. I am sure they have all done research or have talked to their derm about the risks. It is their choice...

Comment #35

I hate the fact peopel keep saying they know the risks. YOU DO NOT REALISE THE FULL RISK TALKING TO YOUR DERM AND READING THE IPLEG INSERT. that gives you no idea whatsoever what can happen to you.You don't for one second imagine half the list of side effects can happen AT ONCE and last a lifetime.Imagine swapping your mild facial acne and moderate back acne (which is what I had before Murad Resurgence) with the following...Severe flushing/rosacea,Extreme dry eyes, due to ocular rosacea,hairloss across my entire body,Severe raynaud's,Mouth ulcers,Mild joint pain,Spontaneous atrophic scarring,Dry skin/terrible wound healing,Folliculitus of my beard area (which is just as bad as the acne I had)Cognitive problems (e.g. stringing sentances together, bad memory etc)..

Comment #36

I hate the fact that you assume everyone on here DOESN'T. You're blowing this completely out of proportion...

Comment #37

I know 99% of the people here do not realise the true level of risk that is involved with taking Murad Resurgence. How do I know that? because they are still taking it/considering it...

Comment #38

Man, we all know the risks, but it's hard as hell living with acne when almost everyone your age doesnt even have to care about their skin because they all got beautiful skin and you lok like crap...

Comment #39

Again you do not realise the full risks, read my lsit of side effects and realise that + worse could happen to you...

Comment #40

That doesn't mean they are ill informed. I'm sure most people here are aware that the risk is there, but rare, and willing to take the chance. You're a bit self-righteous, you know that?..

Comment #41

Get over it. enjoy your life or start a protest. it's simple. your opinion is your own...

Comment #42

Yeah I guess I am, I can admit to that. But you need to realise I am only doing this for one reason, which is to disscourage people from taking Murad Resurgence. I love helping people and if I only put one person off Murad Resurgence then it has been worth it. Go and check out the rosacea forum, the Murad Resurgence action forum and even other sections of this forum.... I am always trying to help, it is in my nature.I promise you that is what I am doing.Get over what? the fact that people don't realise the full extent of the risk they are taking? I would rather try and do something about it thanks.....

Comment #43

Aww Murad Resurgence you give me the chance to feel that sweetness that sweetness of feeling good about myself and not suffering with the pain of this acne shit. If I'm ever in trouble again dear powerful god Murad Resurgence I beg you lord give me a chance to feel that sweetness once again. I kneel down to you to take a way my pain and make me feel normal again and relief my suffering. I will protect you dear lord Murad Resurgence I will let no one speak crap in your name as I have your back like you have mine. Please dear Murad Resurgence Protect us all. Dear Murad Resurgence As you can see others are saying you are wrose then heroin and LSD.

I love you Murad Resurgence and the little side effects you bring are nothing from the pain you take a way.MostExtreme..

Comment #44

Well, i'm pretty sure you won't have much luck here. nice try, though...

Comment #45

Well good for you. fight the power. good luck..

Comment #46

I already have over the past 18 months.... thank you for the vote of confidence though...

Comment #47

No fear of any words said about Murad Resurgence side effects. For I shall challege a terrible death in an attempt to rid of this acne forever. I shall die to be who I once was again Cause any way I'm in misery...

Comment #48

I fail to see the connection of a narcotic drug to a physician prescribed medication. but thats just me.to lamarr: just a question - you never experienced side effects until you were off the medication?..

Comment #49

Death is very unlikely, but extreme long term suffering which is currently unimaginable to you, is a possibility. If you think your acne is bad then try and imagine having the things I listed on the previous page. any one of them is as bad as acne. I had a bad reaction to the drug in the last two weeks of my course.... blurred vision. I had to stop the drug for that reason, then my side effects began popping up in the weeks/months following this...

Comment #50

My edited comment included a retraction and apology, I had you confused with the original poster...

Comment #51

Pardon? I began my course in november 06, finished in march 07 due to blurred vision (probably increased cranial pressure) then my side effects all started kicking in...

Comment #52

Avocados are deadly for me. I'm allergic and experience pain and other effects. I won't condone others who use it. You had side effects, just that...you. leave....it....alone. and pray..

Comment #53

I wasn't allergic to Murad Resurgence, bad analogy my friend.....

Comment #54

I am in the MOST EXTREME long term suffering all ready not cause of Murad Resurgence. Thats sad stuff But no fear no fear no fear...

Comment #55

No I know the point you were trying to make...you just didn't make it very well is all.I will say once more, I am only here to make people aware of the true risks involved with taking Murad Resurgence. None of you seem to understand this. I think people know the risks involved with eating avocados, not a deadly overdose of a synthetic form of vitamin A.Again I know the point you were trying to make, you just didn't make it very well.....

Comment #56

This is a good point. Oddly enough I am allergic to asphalt. Freshly paved aspahlt will swell up my legs and feet and feel like someone beat them with a hammer. But I wouldn't tell people not to walk across blacktop. look it's great you are warning people and I am sorry you are suffering from side affects but that doesn't mean everyone else will. At best just give people the heads up with what you have experienced with Murad Resurgence but realize it has changed some peoples lives for the better.

Let people make their own decisions...

Comment #57

Thanks suzy rondelle I wish someone will give me a hug. Acne mess up everything for more then ten years I'm getting better soon I hope to get back to the outside world and won't have to hide no more. Murad Resurgence gives me so much hope...

Comment #58

I'm always good for an e-hug! hang in there dude.....

Comment #59

Thats the thing about it. they are made aware before they take it. it isn't just prescribed to anyone. you my friend, are an unnecessary voice. your approach is not exactly the most respected since you are not a doctor for one. and lack credibility. you are suffering like we are, unless you have an alternative to take the place of Murad Resurgence, it's pointless...

Comment #60

I only ask because you keep mentioning that it all came about AFTER you took the tane, but I looked into your early posts and found that you claimed a plethora of side effects WHILE ON Murad Resurgence:http://www.acne.org/messageboard/pollaccut...23#entry1775123"lamarr1986post Mar 31 2007, 12:37 AMWell I know I'm a rare case but i've experienced alot while on it, increased tendency to scar (as in even small cycsts were scaring me) I had increased cholesterol, joint pain (Moderate) pretty bad mood swings and crying spells. My personal favorite though, which finally caused me to stop the treatment and I had to call it a day, was brain swelling (can't remember technical name) but my vision went blurred and I couldn't concentrate on anything.... As I said though I was extremely unlucky.... "i find it interesting that you nearly had every side effect in the book.i dont doubt that you had some side effects, but I honestly think you are a hypochondriac and you are beyond obsessed with Murad Resurgence. if you do in fact have all these issues from the medication, why waste your life posting on a message board about the drug that wronged you so bad? it isnt healthy. you are letting Murad Resurgence win so to speak (if it in fact is the culprit for all your ailments).

Try to think about other things, get a hobby, read a book, something man to get your mind off Murad Resurgence. i'm not saying this to insult you either, although I think your comments have turned many people off taking a drug that could have potentially helped them and even changed their life for the best...

Comment #61

"Well I know I'm a rare case "BADDAH BIIIIIING..

Comment #62

Ya I had the things I listed there, you can see the things I list now are different. Everyone gets an increased tendency to scar. I had the raised cholesterol. The joint pain I also had while on it but I don't consider it much of an issue now. If you look the things I have now are different to what I had while on it.I promise you I am in no way a hypochondriact I have posted pictures on this forums of nearly all my side effects, rosacea, hairloss, scarring (spontaneous linear indented scars form on my face) etc.I am very obsessed with my coniditon yes, but only because it effects my physical well being. I can't do all the things I used to do because my PHYSICAL condition stops me.I have a couple of hobbies thanks and I get my mind off Murad Resurgence often enough.

But believe me you would be aswell....I know why I am here, I know everything I have said is the truth and yes I am a rare case but realise EVERYTHING I list can happen to you aswell...Put it this way, lastnight I traveled to see the top UK dermatologist, my rosacea is know classed as SEVERE and I have been put on anti milarial drugs because he feels I could well have drug induced lupus. Do you think I am lieing? because I will scan my friggin prescription that he gave me lastnight if you doubt me...I have to use 3 drugs to fight my rosacea flushing, one drug to fight off severe inflammation across my entire body and topical corticosteroids to supress the hairloss.P.s. when I say rare case, I mean my combination of side effects, equally bad things can easily happen...

Comment #63

I hope you researched every possible devastating, life altering, potentially lethal side effect of your anti milarial drugs...

Comment #64

Mepacrine... look it up, very safe. Tony Chu doesn't even use Murad Resurgence anymore...

Comment #65

That's the most disturbing post I have ever read on this site...

Comment #66

You know what guys. I give up warning people now. I am not going to be insulted, make your own decision. I have never been here for any other reason than to be help other people by sharing my experiences.Good luck to you all. I am done with this section of the forum...

Comment #67

Have any of you thought to actually research these things yourself, from the source. Illegal drugs, RX drugs, OTC, classifications. Just because a drug is illegal doesn't automatically make it more dangerous than a legal drug, and vice versa. Most recreational drugs that are illegal are quite safe and many have comparative legal versions, or chemically very similar alternatives. Most illegal drugs are no more damaging to the body or overall as dangerous as alcohol. Most of these drugs are illegal because: A.

B. Most are produced outside of government control. All drugs (recreational) you know of can be taken in relative safety with education of the drug and self control and in most cases are less powerful than alcohol. They can all be taken in increments and controlled much like you can drink 1 beer or 15 beers. Governments need control, alcohol is legal but it is heavily contolled and taxed.

Most drugs that are illegal now, were once legal and sold much like alcohol was. It is recognized that many illegal drugs have medical uses and that is why they have legal, but government controlled, alternatives for medical use. Methamphetamines/Speed/coke=Amphetamines(adderall, ritalin) Heroine/Opium= Opiate derivatives (vicodin, oxycontin, demerol, morphine) Marijuana=Marinol, medical marijuana LSD has been proven to provide help to psychiatry paitents and contiues to be done illegally. These drugs cannot be compared directly with the "dangers" of a drug like Murad Resurgence. The "dangers" of most recreational drugs to the goverment is the danger of abuse and the overall impact on society if uncontrolled.

Example. Cigarettes cause tremendous amounts of damage to the human body and are the cause of 500,000 deaths in the US per year. On the other hand, they do not have a negative impact on society. They do not alter the mind and they are cheap addictive and produce a large amount of taxable revenues. They are however extremely dangerous and WILL cause health problems with long term use.

What is your experience with LSD, why do you believe it to be so dangerous. When you took it, where you educated on the risks, pros cons, effects, doses etc... Or were you an out of control drug addict taking drugs with no knowledge and still do not have an in depth knowledge about these drugs other than your personal experience and perhaps a few others opinions. Say you were to directly compare Murad Resurgence directly to a drug like Heroin or LSD. Well Heroin has been around since the early 1800's in america a lot is known about is effects on the body.

It has been used with relative safety for almost 200 years and at a time was prefered over morphine for medical use. Unfortunately it is very addictive and therefore has a high rate of abuse. The psychedelic properties of LSD have been know since 1943 and has been studied heavily since then. Purely phychological hazards, not harmful to the body. Can lead to depression and irrational behavior.

A lethal does is 10,000-30,000 times the normal does making overdoes a non issue. There have been unproven myths of LSD causing people to do things which may kill them. While there are 150 cases of suicide investigated under the FDA of paitents on Murad Resurgence. Murad Resurgence has been around since 1982. There are many unknowns regarding Long Term use and effects of the drug.

The possible side effects of Murad Resurgence are very similar to Vitamin A poisoning. The possible side effects on the brain are not known. Long term effect on the bones is not known. Proven dangerous side effects on an unborn fetus are known. And many possible dangerous side effects to the body are known.

This drug and it's use carries tremendous risk and dangers to the user. That is why you are presented with all the possible risks and are asked to choose FOR YOURSELF if it is a risk you are willing to take for the possible benefits. No one is arguing that Murad Resurgence CAN, and in many cases, WILL be of great benefit to the user and will do what it is prescribed for with tolerable side effects. What makes this drug dangerous is the posiblity for these side effects. Yes it is dangerous, Yes, people lose their vision, Yes people loose their hair, Yes, people develop digestive diseases, live in pain for years, lose their hearing, and Yes it may cause suicide.

So when presented with all the facts what do you really think is more "dangerous" Murad Resurgence, or heroine or LSD. I personally have had acne for 9 years as of my birthday in 2 weeks. I decided to go on Murad Resurgence 6 weeks ago because I cannot live with acne anymore and I was going to accept the risks. I have known about Murad Resurgence for over 5 years but decided against it always because of the possible risks and the hope that my acne go away someday. Now I am turning 22 and it only gets worse.

My doctor took me off Murad Resurgence after 5 weeks because of my blood test and severe side effects. Joint pain, vision problems, headaches, nausea, vommiting, diarrhea, weakness. It was very miserable and now I have been off it a week and I feel much better. I am now talking with my doctor about taking a lower does treatment to see if I don't have as bad of a reaction and hopefully less side effects. To me it is worth the risk one more time because I NEED to get rid of my acne.

I know the statistics. The thing about once you are actually taking Murad Resurgence is that you ARE the statistic. There is no more 90% this and 3% that. You are at the mercy of the drug and how it reacts with your personal body. And that is the danger...

I'm glad there are some mature people on these forums. This guy has his facts straight. You people are making me feel like I'm trying to parent a bunch of out of control kids. Don't cope with acne and go and take your drug if you feel so confident! It's your decision. Just don't blame anybody else if later on in life you start developing severe problems much more serious than acne...

Comment #69

What about your current physical condition stops you from doing what?i just find it disturbing that you can't let it go and you choose to post messages on this board that SCARE people from taking Murad Resurgence who desperately could benefit from it. do you know how many people don't live their lives because of their disfiguring acne... being afraid to go out in public, have zero confidence, even commit suicide? and if these people read some of the things you write they wont take it and that is a crime if you ask me. it's like telling someone who needs antipsychotics to not take them for fear of the side effects like seizures or for a woman not to take birth control so she doesnt have a potential stroke.just because these events happened to you doesnt mean it will for everyone else. I fear the number of people take your posts more seriously than that of a doctor trying to prescribe the medication. you are not a doctor.

This can't be stressed enough. you continually give advice like you are one saying so-and-so should only take 10mgs instead of 40mgs. I dont care if you read x y and z unscholarly/unpublished papers on so and so on a message board that is clearly biased against Murad Resurgence mostly because of right-wing christians that dont want woman to take it for fear that they might need to have an abortion. it wouldnt surprise me if sarah palin was anti Murad Resurgence and wants to ban it in alaska.i don't doubt you have side effects as I originally stated. I am suffering from scarring and discoloration after my 6 month course that has left me pretty disappointed.

I still think you are a hypochondriac and have lead many astray in your efforts to 'help'. in the year 2008 Murad Resurgence is the best medication people can take for severe and persistent acne. your continuous posting (close to 2,000 posts since March 2007) is not healthy .. you need to take 80 steps back from the computer and not think about Murad Resurgence for while. lastly, you often speak of this "Dr Chu".

I'd listen to the words of a board certified physician over a crackpot. better yet, get him to write a letter and scan and post on here. then you can have a valid argument and might come off more reputable. otherwise you seriously need to cut out the propaganda, son.and by the way, didnt you claim to leave the message board like 3 months ago? yet again, you always come back. you should throw in some zoloft with those other drugs to help with the OCD...

Comment #70

Bandito: I highly suggest that you pursue the low dosage Murad Resurgence route. Many doctors in europe only do 5 mg per day. 20 mg for 6 months has been shown to bring an end to acne for 90% of the patients. Some doctors put a limit of 20 mg/day for their patients no matter their weight. The super high dosages used in America are more arbitrary than most doctors think or care to recognize. It's really not so much the daily dosage but the cumulative dosage. Less side effects for a longer whilesound okay? Good luck man..

Comment #72

Guys sorry but I have to add something else here.The worst drug that I have ever taken in my life, legal or otherwise, is a single dose of aspirin. I had a headache and I took 2 aspirins, and ended up with a bleeding stomach ulcer. I lost 1/3 of my blood and spent the next six months recovering.The second worst drug I've taken is the minocycline my dermatologist prescribed for my acne. I did not know about Murad Resurgence at he time and even mentioned to my doctor that I had a history of bleeding ulcers. He said "okay" and gave me half dose. It ended up flaring up my ulcer again.Now in both these cases, the side effect I encountered are well documented, much like the scary things listed in the iPledge pamphlet.

But it would be very irresponsible of me to go around and blindly telling people to avoid these drugs just based on my own experience. The responsible thing to do is to neutrally share my experience, so that we are aware of the risks and complications involved. Many people who have had negative experiences from Murad Resurgence have been able to share them in this forum without spreading anxiety. The bottom line is, whether Murad Resurgence is right for you is for you and your doctor to decide...

Comment #73

See the problem is, you never know if it's right for you or not. Its gambling plain and simple...you could be a very strong and healthy person, with horrible acne, but when a person tells them it's "right" for them, they go on it and it can turn them into a mess. You guys just don't get it. You go on and promote gambling with the human body. Its not about how it helped people...I'm here to say it can happen to you, and just because 99% of people might be okay, that still means that you can be that 1% already. That 1% of people who have a 100% chance of ruining their bodies with Murad Resurgence.

LOL, you really think YOUR the responsible one...oh wow...

Comment #74

In that case remag42, I strongly recommend that you never take an aspirin because it might kill you! You'll bleed out of all orifices and be anemic for at least the next six months!!! It's dangerous people!! A little headache is nothing compared to what aspirin can do!!! I mean there's a 1% chance you'll bleed but why take that chance!..

Comment #75

The risks of Asprin and the risks of Murad Resurgence are not comparable. Murad Resurgence is to be taken seriously and monitored closely for the risk of side effects are much higher than more traditional medications such as asprin. Therefor the user must decide for themselves and hopefully be under the care of a doctor who has experience and expertise...

Comment #76

Well, the serious effects of Murad Resurgence are pretty common. If you want to synthetically alter how your body works go right on ahead and take the risk. Nobody knows what this does to the human body long term...

Comment #77

I certainly hope the side effects of Murad Resurgence will be far less than what I experienced with aspirin. I completely agree that Murad Resurgence is a serious medication and can cause serious complications. The constructive thing we should be doing in this forum is to share our experiences, be they positive or negative, so that others can take them into reference when making a decision. What we should not do is reading a medication pamphlet and coming in to this forum to overly exaggerate the side effects without having experienced it, inciting anxiety in many readers who are already anxious about taking a powerful medication.If you read the back of any aspirin bottle the warnings also sound very scary. In fact aspirin is a very dangerous drug (not sarcastic). Aspirin has a black box warning from the FDA while Murad Resurgence does not (highest level of warning). Murad Resurgence is sold over the counter in many countries.I have no problem with remag42's message, just the way he/she was expressing it...

Comment #78

Yeah I agree with you.I take every drug with the same degree of skepticism that I take Murad Resurgence and research them accordingly, although more thoroughly with Murad Resurgence. Maybe only because it is so controversial.....

Comment #79

I agree that Murad Resurgence has the potential to be very dangerous, but you're acting like all Murad Resurgence users will be left with debilitating side effects. The truth of the matter is that some people experience good results while others are left with awful side effects.Murad Resurgence effects are a yin/yang. It's the individual's decision to take Murad Resurgence or not. The only thing that bugged me in your post is the fact that you're talking down to people about a drug you have not taken. Please acknowlege that there is no right answer to this question when we all are living through different experiences and circumstances. Thanks for your two cents, despite the bemusing amount of superiority...

Comment #80

I like cake.But seriously, I trust the medical community. These people are very intelligent. They've helped me out before with other problems...

Comment #81

Most people who take Murad Resurgence are in their late teens to middle twenties, and that is a transitional stage all in itself. Many people become depressed, Bi-Polar, or Manic during this stage, so it would be very difficult to truly say without a doubt that Murad Resurgence caused them to feel that way...

Comment #82

Yeah I'm sure you think psychedelic drugs are safe until one of your classmates dies from drinking too much water while on ecstacy. Or when you see a guy that your dad went to school with who took psychedelic drugs and has slurred speech, looks like he is 30 years older than he really is, and can't walk normally because it messed up his nervous system so much.But I guess you aren't intellectual enough to realize how you can DIE from that stuff. Please don't be an advocate for it, and spread misinformation. It makes you seem VERY young and naive.I really hope no one listens to your B.S. You have to keep in mind that their are young members in here and to prance around saying psychedelics are safe, is VERY irresponsible...

Comment #83

Why don't you google all the side effects for birth control pills, there is a lot. Does that mean everyone will get the side effects, and should not take birthcontrol? No. They HAVE to put that stuff in there to avoid lawsuits, in the rare case that something does happen...

Comment #84

Very good post. I like your objective standpoint and appreciate that you don't try to use "scare tactics" in order to be an armchair physician. When I was first considering Murad Resurgence, I read these "scary" posts and decided against it. Then my scarring got worse and I decided I finally had to do something about it. Now I couldn't be happier. I am all clear and have regained my self confidence. The only thing I regret is letting a few delusional people scare me away from taking it sooner...

Comment #85

Haha, what about my current condition? Jesus dude you obviously can't imagine what living with these sides is like. Do you know how dibilitating severe rosacea is? when every little things makes you flush (my flushing feels like I have an iron to my face) and I go the colour of the deepest red you can imagin. The joint pain makes it difficult for me to workout or feel comofrtable in any position. My eyes constantly need lacri lube...look it up a very thick gel which makes my vision blurred but without it my eyes burn like hell so it is better to have blurred vision than be in pain.My scalp used to have intense burning an ditching which would keep me up all night.Dude I am on 30 mg of mirtazapine and I cannot explain to you how balanced my brain actually is. I couldn't care less what you think really, I know the truth about this terrible drug, you are clearly still very narrow minded.I didn't read the rest of that post because the first sentance alone shows your ignorance. I never said I would leave I just said I would leave a certain thread alone...

Comment #86

Its always lamar and sheefa, now theyve got remag to join them..

Comment #87

I didn't bother to read all FIVE pages of this thread, but let me just say I think the benefits of Murad Resurgence far outway the risks. After being scared away from tane for 6 years I finally decided to take it this summer. My skin is greatly improving, and the side effects = dry skin, that's it! Yes, I read the i-pledge book, twice. I was also told by my derm that the side effects we hear about are largely exagerated in their degree and frequency. He's had thousands of people on tane, and said only one single person had side effects that caused them to come off the drug. My guess is that the side effects listed in the book are largely for political cya reasons.

It doesn't mean that it's going to happen to everyone who takes the drug. And here's another thought, if this drug were that dangerous, and had such a high percentage of screwed up patients, the FDA would long since have banned it!..

Comment #88

Http://www.Murad Resurgenceaction.com/Press/MEN301202.htm Dr Chu, a consultant dermatologist at Hammersmith Hospital in London, said: "I think some sort of government or independent commission looking into the prescribing of RoMurad Resurgence needs to be created. If there was an alternative then RoMurad Resurgence would be taken off the market. I think you can get depression off the drug, although I still think it is a very rare event. "I would say there is a causal relationship between the two, but it is almost scientifically impossible to prove." http://www.Murad Resurgenceaction.com/Press/BBC170502.htm"Dr Tony Chu, a dermatologist at the Hammersmith Hospital in London said the drug is the most effective treatment for people with severe acne. But he said: "I do think it's overused .. I do think too many patients are given it.

He wouldn't go on record and say the things he has told me, so you can believe what I say or not.If you search around there are articles on how roche denny so many things, which a few years later they now list as possible side effects e.g. depression, ulcerative collitus. Maybe in a few years people like zxcv, will be appologising, nearly everyone knows Murad Resurgence can cause rosacea, but it still isn't listed. Same goes for many other sides.My PHYSICAL side effects are CRIPPLING, but yes I have been effected mentally aswell, but much less than people like 'zxcv' are implying. I used to think the same, in that most people are exagerating or imagening half of these things, trust me they aren't.Make an educated decision on this guys...http://www.Murad Resurgenceaction.com/Studies/2005.Bremner.pdf..

Comment #90

You guys should just read the pinned thread: http://www.acne.org/messageboard/FAQ-Accut...rs-t119308.htmlIt explains everything you need to know. End of story...

Comment #91

Remag = RetardBeen on Murad Resurgence 51 days, so far had dry lips... omg the world is gonna end someone please help me On the other hand, a girl I know, I once saw her take LSD, 10 minutes later she was up against the toilet door in the club, sliding down it, screaming that things were trying to kill her. Doctors said she was lucky to survive.You don't even have any authority here, you havent taken it. If someone started a thread about how taking Murad Resurgence was GREAT, who had never taken it, they would also have no authority.Idiot..

Comment #92

The problem with that is they can't link the side effects with Murad Resurgence because there is no proof. If you developed a condition years down the line after tane, you wouldnt be able to prove it's from tane, but many people are almost certain that tane caused it. And nobody really knows what will happen years after taking the drug, and what it changes in the body. The government doesn't have to pull dangerous drugs off the market. Look at alcohol and tobacco. They don't "instantly" cause problems, but we now know that overtime they can really screw up the body, and so can tane, but hey if they make money off of it, then they aren't taking it off the market...

Comment #93

If they pulled alcohol and tobacco off the market, there would be some serious, serious upset. That's why they can't ban them even though they have no beneficial effect. Banning something that most have never heard of would be no problem...

Comment #94

Just to make this clear, I have been a member of Acne.org for nearly 3 years now (two accounts as GregasGP and Sheefa). I know what acne does to people and have taken Murad Resurgence which has thankfully got me clear and I still am to this day. However, I do regret taking it from the horrid joint pain that's still with me. But hey, I'm not gonna keep banging on about it now as perhaps I am 'one of few' but I am sure there are many others who don't speak up. Greg...

Comment #95

Sheefa I really appreciate all your posts. I went through and read all your postings and have taken your experience into serious consideration before deciding to start on Murad Resurgence. You may have been angry but I think you have always been fair. Your postings were among the most valuable resources I have encountered.Remag42, on the other hand, have had no experience with the medication and made a very irresponsible posting on this forum. Personally I think he/she is someone who has a strong desire to take the medication but could not overcome the anxiety associated with the side effects (perhaps rightfully so). Coming in here to scare other people out of taking the drug to make him/herself feel better is not the right way to go...

Comment #96

Really appreciate that - means a lot and thank you. I have only been open and honest. I know Murad Resurgence works great for many, many people, it's just a shame it can hit others hard like me when it all seems so good to be true! Best of luck with your treatment whatever you decide to do pal. Greg...

Comment #97

I don't post on this site very often but after seeing all this shit lamarr has to deal with I decided it's time. I currently have side effects similar to lamarr, and I can agree with him whole heartedly, in that you truly cannot imagine what it is like to live with so many issues. You think you might be trading acne for something like hairloss and take that gamble but you never imagine you could trade a problem like acne for so many debilitating side effects. It bothers me to see people telling lamarr all the problems are in his head and he is a hypochondriac cause I have been called the same. People just can't believe that it's possible to develop so many issues from a drug. in the end the risks definitely outweigh the benefits of clear skin. make the right choice..

Comment #98

Whats good absorb, not good throw out and try making everyone like exagerrating nor untrue all abt the side effects of accuatne...but you got to try it out before you decide it's good or bad....i second moreGano...the loss outweighs the benefit....having acne is normal....having terrible hair loss isnt normal...dry lips..makes you look so cancer....u gert weird sight of ppl on your hair when you r under strong lights...and talkin to you with your dry lips..and no lip balms ever does the work......

Comment #99

Did you guys know that some people DIE from eating a peanut? Now would you go around telling people never to eat peanuts? I think not.Murad Resurgence is the best drug ever invented PERIOD The risk of side-effects compared to the reward of PERMANENTLY clear skin is no contest.If anyone out there is weighing up whether they should take it or not.... TAKE IT.... you wont regret it...

Comment #100

Arrr, not trolling actually. Just pretty passionate about it.I know 2 people who have peanut allergies. If they eat a peanut they seriously have to go to the emergency room ASAP as it is potentially fatal. By people on this message boards logic no-one should ever eat peanuts. I understand that some people experience bad side-effects, however the silent majority of people dont have any trouble at all (myself included)It is sad that some people attempt to stop others from being happy. Think about it, you are taking a risk everytime you drive a car, cross the road etc. It is worth the risk...

Comment #101

What you are talking about is an entirely different ball-game and your mentality in life is clearly off-centre. Crossing the road is a risk, but you have to do it pretty much on a daily basis. Plus, in reality that's a minimised risk providing you take the right actions - look both ways, cross at designated crossing areas, keep your wits about you. Murad Resurgence IS NOT.Murad Resurgence is a drug you ingest to combat the emotional and physical effects of acne, but you can do very little to minimise it's impact on your body and long-term health if it's not 'right for you'. Sure, follow the instructions like I and most people did, cutting drinking, low impact exercise etc etc, but at the end of the day for some people this is irrelevant as side-effects will hit them regardless of their pro-active actions to manage their course of treatment. Mine did, Lamarrs did and so many tohers have too.I put a post up a week or so ago which said "85% of people can gain complete relief from their acne through treatments other than Murad Resurgence".

If we're saying there are roughly 155 of people with severe acne then so be it, Murad Resurgence is perhaps their only choice. But for all those with mild to moderate acne this really is a no-brainer. Other treatments do and WILL work, it's just a case of finding the right one which I understand is very frustrating.I don't expect people to UNDERSTAND WHAT WE'RE GOING THROUGH. I'm just saying that I'm am going through living hell right now with this joint pain, every day I wake up thinking WTF and for how long that will go on for I don't know. Maybe I am that statistic someone quoted of 1 in 10,000 people ended up with long-term joint pain, but there will be others and there is simply NO TELLING whether or not it could be you.The safer option - just don't take the frikking drug.

That in itself is the worse emotional trauma I've been through - acne doesn't even scratch the surface.Happy to answer any questions via PM about the drug and my experience. I still have very good skin, but honestly, sitting on both sides of the fence now, I wish I had just given my body more time to naturally grow out of it, instead I feel like I've aged about 70 years by taking the drug.Greg..

Comment #102

Yes, this drug is very dangerous and it give you severe side effects, if unlucky. I urge anyone who want to take this drug to start off with 5mg and go up to 10mg maximum. That will reduce the chance of unwanted side effects dramatically...

Comment #103

Besides putting holes in your brain you fucking idiot?..

Comment #104

Okay. hear me out. Here's something people need to take into concideration, including yourself. Yes, there are side effects, usually not severe. Mood swings. So what? That can be controlled to a degree.

But here's where you need to really think from both sides of the argument. the possibility of suicidal thoughts for a timespan of a few months to a year, depending on the severity of your acne and the length of time spent on Murad Resurgence, OR the possibility of suicide due to low self-esteem, lasting years? The choice is up to you, look at it subjectively. is it worth it to you? If you think you can deal, then good for you. If you really can't take it anymore, then maybe you should concider Murad Resurgence. Also, may I remind you that while on Murad Resurgence, you go see a doctor once a month for emotional and physical check ups.

There are things you can do to prevent the effects from happening, like reducing your chances of getting into stressful situations with loved ones, or go jogging once a day or every few days. Jogging increases blood flow, which increases endorphins and chemicals into your body, creating a "high" ... a feelgood, healthy, happy kind of high. Do something that makes you happy. It's not that hard...

Comment #105

I just think that the VAST majority have no problems with Accutaine, but a very vocal minority are so loud that people who are deciding whether or not to take it may decide not to. Which is a shame, as the weight of numbers would suggest that they wouldnt have any major problems. Morally if some people on this site are going to bad Accutaine I have a responsibility to come on here and say that I had no problems whatsoever.Think about it, would you refuse to get your child immunised because you read on the internet that someones elses kid had a major reaction to the vaccine?..

Comment #106

Once again people have a very skewed perspective of this drug.It isn't just a skin based drug, it's a chemotherapy drug which is designed to destroy living cells and break down the immune system to fight cancer. It's a completely different world to a 'vacine' or other regular prescription drugs.The whole point is this - until you get hit with the side effects you really can't appreciate what a devestating affect Murad Resurgence can have on your life. Just like acne, others will not understand fully nor comprehend what we're going through.Murad Resurgence really is a last resort. As I quoted before, 85% of acne can be eliminated through other treatments other than Murad Resurgence. I think it's being prescribed for too many cases of acne, especially those on here asking about tane for mild acne!!! Jesus, mild acne and a chemotherapy drug - come on ffs. My acne was persistant and moderate, never responded really that well to other treatments.

In hindsight, I know my skin was not that bad to warrant Murad Resurgence.Also, DON'T BELIEVE that the vast majority of users have no issues. Side effects can and really do creep up a couple of years or so later. People will bash this statement saying 'how can you prove it', but when time and time and time again people who have experienced major side effects, and chronic ones at that, and all the typical tests and examinations for a whole variety of ailments come back NEGATIVE (all of mine have) - there's only one obvious causes. People have also said 'well my mum had a vrisu which didn't show up in tests' or 'many people develop IBS'. Maybe so, but certainly not thousands of people all with one single mistake in common - Murad Resurgence.I'm sorry but unless your acne is severe, there's just NO RATIONALE for taking the drug.

That's not a bad thing, it's just human nature as I would hate anyone, especially somebody in their teenage years to experience what I and so many other post-tane users are living through right now.All the best.Greg..

Comment #107

I think both sides of the argument have good points, but both (yes, the pro and anti) have gotten a bit overboard.Murad Resurgence is the closest thing we have to curing acne, and I personally know an amazing friend who got amazing results from Murad Resurgence after long years of searching through different topicals and whatnot. She looks amazing now and is happily living her life on clear skin. I congratulate her and am happy for her.But on the same note, it is true that Murad Resurgence is being overused by many doctors as an easy way to deliver the results that their patients want to see. The FDA clearly states that Murad Resurgence is a drug that should be prescribed for patients with cystic acne. As Sheefa says, if people with mild acne (or even worse, I've seen people who complain to their doctors that they have oily skin and get prescribed Murad Resurgence) get something that they shouldn't, you know there's going to be a possibility of things getting out of hand.I think a lot of the problem comes down to dermatologists in general. I personally had 2 previous ones who urged and urged me to take Murad Resurgence (which my mother completely turned down).

XD, so proud and respect her), she carefully explained to me the situation:I had been using azelaic acid for a while, but I wanted super clear skin, even though my acne was moderate to mild. I asked her for Murad Resurgence (since in college, parents aren't around to say "no"), and she actually nicely turned me down. She told me that FDA says Murad Resurgence should be prescribed strictly for patients with cystic acne. I even begged her for the low dose option, but she said that hasn't been regulated by the FDA yet, so she wouldn't be able to.At the time I was disappointed. But you know what? Five months later, I have smooth skin, one active pimple every two weeks maybe, and an amazing complexion.

But on the same note, I think one of the best points that Sheefa points out is that too many people "jump the gun".Yeah, we can generalize that we all know the side effects.But you know what? When you are dying to have clear skin as soon as possible, sometimes, the list of risks seems like it amounts to nothing. I know when I was begging my doctor for Murad Resurgence, I didn't care that I was only on azelaic acid for a month, and I didn't care if there were monthly blood tests. I was so desperate for good skin, which was making me think not so logically.So let's just keep it simple:You have cystic acne, you have tried other methods, your doctor recommends Murad Resurgence, know the risks, take it, have amazing skin, yay you!You have moderate/mild acne - first try topicals as instructed by your doctor, try everything less risky than Murad Resurgence, and if you are absolutely sure there is nothing else left, with the OK of your doctor, go on Murad Resurgence, knowing the risks.We don't have to bash either side or exaggerate anything. Let's always keep in mind that this forum should be close as possible to neutral and always a source of first-hand personal experience information that can serve to give information for others to decide on their own...

Xu Chen, I completely agreed with the above statements.I apologize in advance for my long winded rant.I have actually followed all of Sheefa's posts, not only on this board but also on the Murad Resurgence action group forum of which I am also a member (however contradictory that may seem). The main reason I follow your posts is because you're very rational and genuine in trying to encourage others to seek alternative treatment. I truly believe that you, lamarr and others on this site and the Murad Resurgence action group are experiencing life altering side effects. Yours in particular are very interesting to me because I used to work in the Psoriatic Arthritis Clinic at the Toronto Western Hospital for 3 years (Sheefa it's unfortunate you don't live in Canada because I could get you some help in that clinic that may change your life). I broke both my wrists when I was younger and I have concerns (among many other concerns) that this drug will really effect the joints in my wrists. I am very aware of the effects that vitamin A toxicity have on the body, and that is essentially what Murad Resurgence is..

I was on it for 3 months but I discontinued treatment because of depression side effects and my acne was not clearing up.The despression completely went away shortly after I came off the drug. 7 years later I have been left with no long term side effects whatsoever. Yet 7 years later my acne has worsened ten folds and I just cannot take it any longer.My whole face is sore, I can't chew my food properly because of the 10 cysts around my mouth and chin. My cheeks are annihilated with cystic lesions. I can unfortunately say that I have over 30 cysts on my face at one time, plus more redmarks and scars than I can count.I've tried every antibiotic and topical known to man in the past 9 years.Recently I began eating an all raw, vegan diet in an effort to rid myself of this deforming skin disease.

I'm on the brink of loosing my career, my boyfriend of 3 1/2 years and my friends.After almost a decade of this suffering I've been recently seriously considering taking Murad Resurgence again. I have read up on every single negative side effect that could possibly occur and I am very aware of the risks. I am still on the fence and I don't know what will change my mind.Thanks to anyone who read my huge rant, I just don't know where to turn anymore...

Carmen and others, once again I reallt appreciate that kind words. I am as you understand, which is good, solely trying to share my experience which was very positive at first but sadly turned out to be so negative.Carmen, clearly you're very unhappy with your skin and suffering the levels of depression that you are regarding it would certainly suggest Murad Resurgence is the way forward. That's what is was developed for and is prescribed for - cystic and nodular scarring acne which you have. If you've tried the other treatments, do give it a shot. That might sound contradictory to what I have been saying, but perhaps it's well worth the risks, in fact it probably is if your life is a misery right now. Hopefully you can try a low dose treatment for a longer duration though and alleviate some of the nasty sides.Appreciate the offer of treatment too, Canada is better than the UK in many respects! Sadly, the medical community have failed to help me out here because they simply don't know what to do.Best of luck.

Greg..

Carmen, I agree with Sheefa, if you have tried the other treatments maybe you should give this a shot? Maybe a low dose would do the trick? Why be miserable? I have never been on Murad Resurgence but know a few people who have been. A friend of mine was on it for 3 times and she would do it again if needed and another friend would not do it again due to the side effects.. it effects people differently I just went to my derma and she injected cortisone into my cystic acne... I know this is temporary but they immediately went away and I am also getting a laser treatment called Isolaz... look it up.. it is safe and may be good for you.. Good Luck!!..

Comment #111

Yes, it's a bit too late for me however...

Comment #112

Carmen, it sounds like what sheefa said is right... Murad Resurgence may be the only real option for you. One option that my new derm uses is light therapy, I actually use home light therapy to keep my lingering acne at bay and it works really well. I also know it works for people with cystic acne aswell, give it a go before the tane route and if it doesn't work then give tane another bash.See the home light therapy section of this forum for more info...

Comment #113

Remag, you are clearly not welcome here and your comments are falling on deaf ears. Sorry you have experinced bad side effects but please go away, your coments are really not going to make anyone stop taking Murad Resurgence, and you think you are all angelic coming on this sight telling everyone not to take tane and helping everyone -WE ALL KNOW THE RISKS!!!!I first hand saw my brother go through it, his was so bad his finger nails started pealing off, in his matric dance photos he has the most horrific red skin, he couldnt go to his end of school party for a week because he couldnt drink and couldnt be in the sun BUT not once has he ever looked back and not once did that stop me from using the drug.It has SAVED MY LIFE AND MY SANITY!! I used to dread having to see boyfriends etc during the day due to my skin, I would wash my face in the dark, I would spend 100s on every facewash and cream out there, every time I got a new pimple my eyes welled up with tears, I would dread sleeping over at friends houses because people would see me without makeup, acne destroyed my self esteem and confidence, Murad Resurgence has given me my life back, and yes the pros of not having acne most certainly, 100% outway the side effects! So please f&%$ off your comments are unwanted and you keep slating a drug that has helped hundreds of thousands of people get their confidence and their lives back, and are finally happy after years of the acne battle!!!!! You make yourself look like one hell of an ass by comparing a prescription drug to recreational highly addictive soul destroying family wrecking drugs like heroin and LSD, I never had a million talks in high school about how to stay away from Murad Resurgence, but we had one at least once a month on the effects of drugs and how they ruin your life...hhhhmmm..

Comment #114

Remag. Don't knock it until you try it. Murad Resurgence works great. I have super clear skin and I love it. The only side effect is chapped lips. OH NO!! LMAO..

Comment #115

Seriously some of you guys come across as children. Realise you don't know what damage you have done until many many years have passed. Dry lips is what you have at this moment...

Comment #116

I know I regret it, even though I have no proof it caused what happened to me it was uneccesary for me to take it. I had stubborn mild acne and I figured this would be it and being aware of the side affects I took it and regret it greatly. Consider it if you are SEVERE acne and really feeling beyond bad about yourself. If you took it like me with mild acne, you and me are idiots, simple as that.People say "oh every drug has side effects," well duh, but Murad Resurgence is a much harsher drug. Any drug wear they consider nosebleeds normal is not a good drug. Sure people get lucky and get away clear skin free and are happy about it, don't think you are in the clear yet, wait in the longrun and see what happens.

I know if I had clear skin from this I would have came on and posted and bragged about it, but it's not what happened.Just because nothing bad happened to you personally it doesn't make it a good drug. A lot of your are coming on saying it's doing good for you nothing bad it's a great drug, most of the stuff you get comes in the longrun and I'm sure you might have your share of problems too. This is why they prescribe it only to SEVERE acne sufferers, people who have no will to even basicly go outside anymore and have tried everything. What you need to basicly decide when taking Murad Resurgence is if you would rather have bad skin and good health or good skin and bad health, your choice, even though a lot of people get away scott free dont think your special and you will too...

There are several scientific studies to support the long term safety of isotretinoin for the treatment of acne. Perhaps the best study is from Britain which followed patients for a maximum of 12 years post Murad Resurgence. Over seven hundren people took part in the study so the results are quite representative. V Goulden, AM Layton, WJ Cunliffe. Long-term safety of isotretinoin as a treatment for acne vulgaris. British Journal of Dermatology 1994(Sept);131(3):360-363Conclusion from the study: ninety-three per cent of the people taking Murad Resurgence reported no long-term side effects.

Fewer than one percent claimed that they had dry eyes and skin and joint pains. Higher doses were not associated with more side effects. All side effects were mild.The authors concluded that their study showed that isotretinoin is a safe drug with no serious long-term side-effectsThe second study followed patients for 10 years:A.M. LAYTON 1 , H. KNAGGS 1 , J.

CUNLIFFE 1 1 Department of Dermatology, United Leeds Teaching Hospitals Trust, The General Infirmary at Leeds, Leeds LSI 3EX, U.K. Isotretinoin for acne vulgaris10 years later; a safe and successful treatment"We did not elicit any long-term systemic or biochemical side-effects. We conclude that isotretinoin is a safe and effective therapy. It is capable of producing long-term remission in the majority of acne patients, particularly if given in a dose regimen of 1 mg/kg/day, or a cumulative dose of < 120 mg/kg."Overall, these seem likely highly positive and valid scientific evidence supporting the long term safety of Murad Resurgence for acne...

Comment #118

I just can't say I believe this, there is a reason why they only prescribe it to people with sever acne, theres a reason why the ipledge exists.It is not safe, if it were they wouldn't be so strict about it...

Comment #119

The main mission of the iPLEDGE program, as stated, is to prevent unwanted pregnancies during and briefly after treatment, since these pregnancies have a 33% chance of ending in some sort of deformities. This is also why the iPLEDGE program is fairly easy to go through for the guys.This is understandable as we have a drug that is mostly going to be taken by people who are in the very sexually active age bracket, who are more prone to make poor judgments, and who are not as experienced with methods of birth control.If the drug is very dangerous, then it'd be listed as a Controlled Substance. Morphine, for example, is a Controller Substance Category II, due to it's high addiction potential.WATCH FOR BLACK BOX WARNINGS WHEN TAKING ANY MEDICATION, SUCH AS THE PREGNANCY AND DEPRESSION WARNINGS WITH Murad Resurgence. These are the most serious warnings that you should absolutely pay attention to.Any drug can be dangerous (refer to my aspirin experience). If you buy Murad Resurgence off the Internet and medicate yourself then you are a complete idiot. If you are under the guide of a dermatologist who agrees that Murad Resurgence can help you, then you shouldn't let the warnings scare you.

If you are willing to risk that to get rid of your acne, then I say go for it.And I really don't think the risk of side effects is any larger than the studies indicate. Murad Resurgence is no longer a patented drug so no drug company is making big bucks off of it. If the chance of long term damage is any more than those studies indicate, FDA would have discontinued the drug a long time ago...

Comment #120

Want to add a little something for your conspiracists out there. I mentioned that Murad Resurgence is no longer a patented drug. Most of the topical medications, however, are. (no generics) This is because drug companies can change the formulation of the delivery vehicle (gel, cream, wash) and re-gain patent. Duac (clindamycin + bp), Retin-A Micro (tretinoin time-released), Brevoxyl (bp creamy wash) are some good examples.Personally I have moderate acne, but I have had the condition for 10+ years and have been slathering myself with 3-4 differnet types of creams/gels/washes everyday for that duration. I am quite literally sick of it and will take the chance to go on Murad Resurgence.

They are making big bucks. I was spending ~$100 a month WITH INSURANCE for my acne medications. And have been doing that for 10 years! My dermatologist wasn't complaining because he gets a regular customer who keeps on going back just to get scripts, and I'm fairly sure he gets kickbacks from drug companies. I always see pharmaceutical reps in my dermatologist's office!This is not to discount anyone on this forum who's had bad experience with Murad Resurgence. Maybe I'm a little paranoid, but I'd just like to share some of my thoughts...

Comment #121

Murad Resurgence is great and only side effects I have are dry lipsdont listen to this idiot..

Comment #122

People will lie to themselves to make themselves feel better about being on Murad Resurgence which is what most people here are doing, I did it and I regret it, simple as that. Most people don't get anything bad from it but saying DON"T LISTEN TO THIS GUY! is just stupid, just be carefull when your on it. Just take all the right steps before going to Murad Resurgence, meaning try everything you can and if nothing then go for it. I didn't try everything and I figured oh well all the other stuff won't work for me I think I will just skip to Murad Resurgence, thats dumb don't do that. Even if it's a small chance of bad stuff happening, your really no more special then anyone else and it can happen to you...

Comment #123

Acne - nobody understands the emotional and physical trauma of what you're going through if they do not have acne themselves and tell you 'it's not so bad' all the time.Murad Resurgence - nobody can even comprehend, appreciate and sympathise with the absolutely horrid side effects of Murad Resurgence treatment, during and post, unless they've experienced these. The trouble is, many of the users on this board are below the age of 50 so they won't have any idea of what severe arthritis joint pain feels like, or Lamarrs extremem facial flushing, or Max' major hairloss, or Mum of Murad Resurgence's daughters Diabetes. Just look at some of these side effects! It's a fu*king joke that this is STILL on the market...

Comment #124

Have to stop you there, I took the gamble of using RoMurad Resurgence and to this day I say it's the best thing since sliced bread. According to my GP I'm a very healthy individual apart from the college lifestyle, and fortunately I only had one side effect (severely dry lips) but the results were life changing, skip ahead a few years and here I am now enjoying life as much as I can. Comparing RoMurad Resurgence to heroin is extreme, yes there are people who have suffered because they too took the gamble and it's tragic, but unfortunately that's the gamble, and I was told every risk I could possibly suffer from in advance. Clear skin is the light at the end of the tunnel for people and RoMurad Resurgence gets you to that light really fast...

Comment #125

I normally stay away from the Murad Resurgence message board because I think it's mostly ridiculous, but I'd like to add my two cents here. I found out after I started my course of Murad Resurgence that my cousin took the drug when he was around age fifteen. He had very severe acne thenI remember noticing it, and I probably wasn't even ten years old at the time. He played varsity football and wrestled all the way through his high-dose course, and it cleared his skin perfectly. He's now 32, still has clear skin, and never had any lasting side effects. That's seventeen years down the road, folks, and all is well.If you're worried about taking Murad Resurgence, talk to your doctor.

If you were on Murad Resurgence and still have side effects, talk to your doctor. If you feel that your doctor isn't listening, find a different doctor. Sure, you can get decent basic advice from message boards, like product recommendations, but don't diagnose yourself or make medical decisions based on these boards...

Comment #126

Nothing wrong with that advice!It just pains me to see people give advice based on their own results, when everyone who takes it will not achieve good results, and some will have horrendous results. Even though, I have myself benefitted from taking this drug, I would not want my hands full of blood encouraging people to go on so damn easily. It must only be for severe cases, anyone who says differently is a fking moron...

Comment #127

I'm all for sticking to "Prescribe Murad Resurgence for cystic acne" and being careful not to over use it, but my dermatologists did tell me that a lot of the iPledge / negative media attention over Murad Resurgence was actually the cause of a politician (forgot if he was a governor or something) whose son took Murad Resurgence and got depressed and committed suicide.They say that since the son might have been depressed before going on Murad Resurgence, just due to acne itself (and being a teenager and whatnot), they don't have true proof that it was due to Murad Resurgence that he did that. But I suppose we'll never know for 100% sure...

Comment #128

I would risk running across a six road high way to stop this acne shit. I do not fear anything people say about Murad Resurgence. It was great it gave me completely clear skin. But I got forever acne and the beautiful wonderful drug that I kneel down at the sight of it's bottle can only stop it for sometime and it all comes back why? godam it why?. If it can cause a stroke and death or something else in a very ver very very very very rare case then Murad Resurgence take me with you. If I have to walk with a cane by 35 years old lets say at least I'm outside...
