Dianette For Acne FAQs

What are the benefits of taking Dianette for acne?

Most people know this medication as an oral contraceptive and may not be aware that it is also possible to take Dianette for acne. This medication is usually recommended if earlier treatments, such as oral antibiotics, have been unsuccessful. This makes Dianette for acne a beneficial alternative for women. Oral contraceptives like Dianette are also known to present a lower risk of side effects than other medications.

How does Dianette treat acne?

One of the two synthetic hormones contained in this oral contraceptive is called cyproterone acetate, an anti-androgen. Androgens are known as male hormones, though they are present in both men and women, and stimulate skin and hair growth. When too much androgen is produced, or if a person has a particular sensitivity to androgens, the sebaceous glands of the skin can in turn produce too much oil. When this occurs, the sebaceous glands can become blocked, causing inflammation and infection in the form of acne.

Cyproterone acetate, as an anti-androgen, can prevent this from occurring by blocking the body's receptors usually affected by androgens. It is also able to reduce the amount of androgens that are produced from the ovaries.

Can anyone take Dianette for acne?

Though it is a very safe medication, Dianette is not suitable for every woman, as certain medical conditions or circumstances may mean it may cause adverse side effects or not be as effective. You should not take this medication if you are pregnant or breast-feeding. If you have ever experienced problems with your liver, heart or blood circulation this medication will likely not be prescribed to you. For your own safety, you should make sure that you fully disclose any medical information that could affect your suitability for this treatment during your online consultation.

How to take Dianette for acne

Taking Dianette for acne is no different than doing so for contraceptive purposes. A pill pack will contain 21 pills which you will need to take over 21 days. You should take one pill at the same time every day for these 21 days, followed by a seven day break. It does not matter whether you take the pill with or without food, but many women find it helpful to swallow the pill with water. You should begin the next pill pack after the seven day break.
