My eyes were matted shut with an infection. Also my throat is hurting. I think I have a sinus infection & this medication is not clearing it up. I was given eye drops & it cleared that part up.

Comment:
Dermatologist prescribed this for acne. Took it for 5 months. It was completely useless in terms of clearing up my skin. Acne is not one of the listed uses for this medicine so maybe that is why it didn't work for me. Didn't have any side effects at all.
