    My derm put me on Aczone a little under a year ago. It's made a big difference in the amount of cystic acne that was popping up on my face. I still get the occasional spot but it clears up faster, and where as before I would get 3-4 or more cysts, now I get one every so often.

    aczone works very well to stop acne.Its the best thing I have ever used.But the price is unreal 200 to 275 bucks for a little 30 gram tube if your insurance doesn't cover it like mine.And the discount cards for aczone only works for a year after that your on your own paying 275 bucks each time you pick it up from the drug store.There is no generic for aczone until September 2016 when the paten ...

    Product is very effective and easy to use. It started to clear up my cystic acne after just a few weeks and now a year later I haven't had any erruptions in months. My only qualm is that it is way too expensive, insurance doesn't cover it, and their coupons don't actually save you anything at all.

I stopped taking it and the Dr had to put me on prescription hydrocortisone to help git rid of the rash, which took another 3-4 weeks to clear up. Be very cautious with this medication. After reading more about this medication, which I wish I ... Show Full Comment
