So I'm one day into month four out of six now on 50mg a day as I'm not so tall. My acne is pretty much gone apart from the odd spot I'm getting now. However I've noticed I have these kind of bruise like patches under my eyes and a faint line coming down from the edge of my eyes down my cheeks on both sides.I guess that's because Murad Acne Complex thins the skin but I'm a little worried as nobody else seems to have described these side effects anywhere.It makes me look permanently tired and isn't particulary attractive. Did anybody else experience this? Yes I'm getting enough sleep. Just not sure whether to worry about it or not. If it is because my skin is thinning, need I be worried or does this reverse after the treatment???Regards,Tim...

Your question was: Dark lines and slight bags under my eyes from Murad Acne Complex?.

Its more a purple then a blue. I guess a little lighter then say a bruise you would get from a fall. It sort of arcs in a 1cm length from the lower left point of my eyes to the middle. I wonder if eye cream could work while I'm on Murad Acne Complex for the next two months.I'll drink more water: have drunken less recently so I'll bear that in mind.Thankyou..

I'm answering my own question here after comprehensively scouring the search tool but it will be useful for other people in my position.Yes people get dark lines, bags, bruising around their eyes making them look tired / old.This is because the skin is thinning and is thin around the eyes anyway so is prominent. To solve it while on Murad Acne Complex use:i) cucumber slicesii) green tea teabagsiii) an eye creamiv) makeupFurthermore drink lots more water.And only one person out of many said this effect didn't go away post-Murad Acne Complex...

There isnt much you can do about dark eye circles, except rub a little concealer on them to make them lighter. I have them all the time, I don't reccomend eyecream because any cream is just to heavy for the delicate skin and will cause wrinkles...

I am on my third month of Murad Acne Complex (2nd course) and also just noticed some lines under my eyesIt's like I just woke up with them all of a sudden. I am 27 though, so they may have been there already (gasp), but dehydration (from the Murad Acne Complex) makes eye lines more prominent. Definitely put some kind of moisturizer there and your entire face. I am also going to be picking up some omega 3 fish oils because apparently they hydrate the skin from inside. I've been wanting to use retinol for under my eyes because ive heard from many that it helps lines/wrinkles, etc but I'm not sure of retin-a and Murad Acne Complex together, so ask a derm first. Or try retinol product after you're done the Murad Acne Complex if lines still bother you. good luck..

I noticed these dark hollows under my eyes starting after about the first month. I'm pretty pale to begin with, and it just made the purplish part under my eyes a bit more prominent, it looked like I hadn't gotten any sleep and had stayed up rubbing my eyes. I just started my 5th month, and they're about the same. I asked my derm if they would go away afterward I was finished with the course, but she said that there was no real way to tell. It's better than constantly being covered with pimples though, if you ask me...

I've been experiencing the same thing. I'm sure if it is solely from Murad Acne Complex in my case though, as I am also in an insomnia curing program that involves sleep deprivation at the same time...
