Fraxel Re:store - Alabama

Somewhat Helpful, but Definitely NOT a Cure - Florida

I sought out a doctor to give me a Fraxel Re:pair for acne scarring.

I did get back on spiro! Thank goodness for a compassionate ARNP who called in a prescription (with three refills, woo hoo!) without me having to go in for an office visit! (At least for this time, right? Lol) Since I hadn't been... READ COMMENT

When I was taking both spiro and doxy, I believe I took my doxy at night and spiro in the morning, but I don't see why you couldn't take both at the same time. That being said, I know I had to have a little something on my stomach when... READ COMMENT
