What type of acne treatment does Nurx prescribe?

After reviewing your health profile and photographs of your acne, a Nurx medical provider will create a custom treatment plan using evidence-based prescription medications. Most patients will receive a topical treatment of either topical antibiotics, a retinoid cream, or both. Patients with moderate acne are likely to also receive a prescription oral medication: Antibiotics, spironolactone, or combination birth control pills. While completing the online assessment you  may indicate if there are certain prescriptions that you are or are not interested in. The Nurx pharmacy fills the prescriptions and sends medications to your doorstep, and after ten weeks of treatment the Nurx medical provider will follow up and adjust prescriptions if needed. 

Please note that we do not prescribe isotretioin (Accutane).
