Anti-acne medications usually do not cause hairfall, though tretiva and acutret ( same drug only )can cause multiple other problems. Blood tests prior to starting and at periodic intervals is recommended. Acne treatment has multiple stages - to control new breakouts, to clear the sequelae (pigmentation and scars) and to prevent a relapse. An attempt to find out the root cause of acne should be made in every patient or else it keeps recurring. Each phase takes a couple of weeks before we move to the next phase of treatment. If you have active acne lesions, it should be controlled on priority basis.
Your dermatologist will decide a treatment plan for you after a consultation.
