Sarecycline, new medication specifically for acne
Joshua Grosshandler, MD, stops by the Dermcast.tv studio for a discussion about Sarecycline, the first new oral medication for acne in four years. The medication is weight based, allowing for a lot of flexibiltiy, and requires just one pill per day.
“This medicine is indicated at 9 years of age and older which is amazing. We really don’t have
any oral antibiotics or any oral drugs for acne that are indicated for that young. Most of the
medicines that we talk about are indicated for 12 years and older.”
