Accutane

May I ask how old you are? I'm a 50 year old female, and my acne sounds like the exact same kind as yours. Considering Accutane again, since I'm just fed up and can't tolerate Spiro. First course, when I was 25, put me in remission for over 15 years. Thanks!

Lexapro and Hiccups
Yawning is a side affect because of oxygen intake changing so the hiccups sounds normal when thinking about that. Any time I have to restart Lexapro I yawn soooo much.
