Scared of coming off my acne treatment

I have been using Skineron cream for my forehead which was badly burnt by the sun and acne, wow i could see the difference, one has to be patient though. I'm worried about coming off the Ginette 35 tablets, i have read through the internet  about the worst  and bad acne people had after stopping the pill, has anyone ever experienced this?

You need to use an acne treatment for as long as your tendency to acne persists, if you stop using it while you are still prone to acne it will come back. Ginette 35 (also called Diane 35) is only licensed for short term use due to the increased risk of side effects associated with this pill. Ask your doctor about a newer pill called Yasmin which also clears acne but is more suitable for long term use.
