Accutane vs Doxycycline
Thank you for your question. I'm sorry to hear about your recent struggles with acne and rashes. In my experience, both Accutane and doxycycline are effective medications in treating acne, but you need to weigh the risks and benefits of each medication. Also, the duration of therapy for each medication varies, and there are more responsibilities when taking Accutane. Deciding which treatment is best for you is based on your goals, commitment, costs, etc. I highly recommend you consult with a board certified dermatologist regarding your acne and treatment options that best suit your needs. Take care and good luck.
