hello dr,
i took duphaston for 4 months, but acne arises after i stop taking it.
how long this will last for? and does getting acne go away on its own?

Hello and Welcome

I appreciate your concern

Duphaston is not a first line drug in treating acne. Isotretinoin topical or systemic can be advised based on the severity of the acne. Pregnancy should be ruled out before starting tretinoin as its highly teratogenic. consult a dermatologist in this regard.

Wishing you best of health
