I will be starting on Apprilion today; 40mg dose each morning. Will this drug give me fast results and will they last? (Photo)

What my doctor and I are pretty sure is Rosacea is covering my nose, chin and cheeks. My face often gets itchy, and dry. I am right now using some natural creme memes to hydrate t but I'm not sure if it's working as it will be less red then flare up again. I have had this in a much less severe form since Jan 2016.

The oral medication will help and often get rid of papules/pustules , but redness needs vascular laser treatments.  Best, Dr. Emer.
