So I haven't been on here in a while.On the first of May I began taking Murad Acne Complex. I was on 60 mg/day and after 2 months was moved up to 80 mg/day. After two months my acne had cleared almost completely and I was very satisfied. The only side effects were dryness of face, redness, and dry lips, but they were all manageable. I ended my third month dose but then left for Chicago to see my dad and never went in to get blood work done for my fourth month. I finally did in late August before starting school and I finished my first 20 40mg pills, but then stopped taking them partly because the sun was beginning to bother my face, and partly due to laziness.Well, I soon realized my mistake as my acne started to return within a few months.

I have just started taking my pills again this morning and am ready to have clear skin again. I do have some questions though. firstly, will I have an initial breakout again and if so, will it be as severe since my body has not been away from Murad Acne Complex for too long? Secondly, does the amount of Murad Acne Complex taken affect the initial breakout? I have read that Murad Acne Complex will affect the skin in the same way, no matter what the dosage, and that high doses only affect the skin long term. Is this true? Thanks..

Your question was: What is the effect of high doses of Murad Acne Complex?.

Hey, I'm the same as you my acne is very mild, but there all in little groups. Like around 6 spots all concentrated on my cheek and then a few on the other cheek and around 3 spots on my forehead with all sorts of small scars everywhere. Most are inflamed and there are also spots I can see under the surface just waiting to come out There hasn't been a day for about 3 months now where I have been completely clear and my acne has been quite persistant for 2 years now. (Im 19) If one spot goes, more will just appear and it's really getting me down. Im always depressed about it and haven't left my house for 3 months. Luckily I'm on a gap year so I dont have to go anywhere.I've tried all the OTC stuff like Benzoyl Peroxide (Quinoderm, Panoxyl) Freederm as well as Sacilyc acid, Proactiv, Topical antibiotics (Rozex Metronidazole gel), Differin, Stieva-A cream and then all the other rubbish like Clearasil, Oxy, Neutrogena etc.

All these creams dont seem to have much effect, they work for a little while and then they stop never completely clearing it, as I continue to break out and get more and more red scars.My skin is pretty oily most of the time and sometimes I get red spots that can be quite painful but there not as big as cysts. I am going privately to a dermatologist soon as I'm sick and tired of topicals that do not clear it, and me still breaking out and getting more scars. I really want to go on Murad Acne Complex and yes I know about all the side effects and the iPledge system and the blood tests and I'm not sexually active and wont be either, so that wouldnt effect me. I believe the benefits definitely outweigh the risks for me and am willing to go through it all as although my acne is very mild, it is really effecting my life and I want a long-term cure. I Have read of many peoples acne returning after they have come off Dianette aswell and I really dont want to go through that.

My aunty and 4 of my cousins have all been on Murad Acne Complex with amazing results and all were fine, I'm now the only one suffering.Anyone have any ideas if I would get it?? Sorry it was so long

Hey Lizzie,I would say that you could inquire about Murad Acne Complex, especially a low dose. I did and it was that easy. However, you have to be completely positive that you are ready to go through with it. I knew all the side effects and consequences and still stopped taking it before I was done and now look where I am. Just make sure you are aware of all of your possibilities. If you have tried everything like I have, then why not? You have to meet with your doctor monthly anyways so he/she will be able to check up on your progress and any possible problems along the way.Also BUMP.Still wondering about the questions in my previous post. I'm just curious and have not found the answers through browsing around...

This is what I do and it has cleared me up !!!In the AM I take shower clean my face with Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser for 30 to 40 seconds pat dry ...wait 10 minutes then apply Neutrogena Alcohol Free Toner witch is very imporant because it takes care of everything that the cleanser left behind like residue oil stuff like dat plus it refreshes your skin....well wait like 10 minutes till it dries then apply Neutrogena Oil-Free Moisturizer witch is ultra light non greasy and shine free =) PM I do the same just add BP after I tone my skin then add the moisterizer =)....I have been doin this for a month str8 and it had cleared me up after alot of years wit oily acne skin .....I did the research and the proper way to clean your skin is to 1.clean skin wit a face wash 2.Tone skin with a alcohol free toner 3.apply Dans BP ((only in the PM))4.Moisterize with an oil free moisterizer....GOOD LUCK and keep updatin..

I had to go through intense training and eventually was sent to the deep bowels of our Earth to fight off demonic creatures. In all honesty I have no idea. I haven't been on here in months and I came back and was a "Veteran Member." I don't think it has any perks. I haven't increased my draw on women..
