Patient : Dear Ask the Doctor, I have recently been taking cyestra-35 as prescribed by my doctor for my acne. I'm 18 years old and have had acne problems since I was twelve. Now that I am taking cyestra-35 my acne has gotten extremely worse to the point that my face hurts really bad to touch it. I want to stop taking the pill because I've also heard that once you're on you have to stay on and I don't want that. What can I do?
