Length of acne treatment with acticlate 150 mg

My dermatologist prescribed acticlate 150 mg once daily for treatment of my acne. I am taking this medication for two months already.

How long do side effects last?

I took one dose of Acticlate as indicated by my dermatologist. I experienced side effects of tummy rumbles, pain from the navel up, sinus headache, & general malaise; shoulders hurt, back hurts.

They shouldn't last more than a few days, if you only took one dose, but it would be best to have things checked out by your doctor. Are you on any other medications?
