Prazosin Acne

Updated
concerned Says:

Does prazosin cause acne? I've always had very clear skin and since I started taking prazosin I've been breaking out (zits) all over my face, even on my neck. And they're not just little pimples; they are the huge. They are big zits that never come to a head, they take weeks to go away, sometimes leave scars, and they hurt!

Yes, this works on hormones in the body, so acne can be a result. I had a very similar problem, when I was taking a similar drug.

It never stopped for me, until I switched medications, so I'd suggest looking into that for yourself. Because I tried every other metho I could find and nothing helped.

Are there any other questions or concerns?
