Meds and Acne
Hi Doc,

I have Bipolar 2 and I am on Wellbutrin, Cypralex, Epitec and Eltroxin. I have read that the Epitec causes acne. Is there any medication that I could get a prescription from my Doctor for to help with the acne? I am desperate as it is making me more depressed.

Thank you for your reply

Hi Kieron
As far as I know it can cause skin rash but not acne? Try using an antibacterial face wash, benzoyl peroxide on lesions, and a topical antibiotic like Eryderm?
