I am a 32 year old female and have had acne for almost ten years now. Since starting my teaching job, between the stress hormonal changes, and having a child acne has ruled my face.

I had acne on my face, chest and back since I was 12, and after two years of antibiotics and topicals I was looking at Accutane as a last resort. After 6 months on a 30mg dose of Roaccutane, my skin was perfect. I got the occasional pimple from my period but for the next three years I had all... READ MORE

I have struggled with acne since I was in middle school and I am now 26. I would say I am pretty confident but only as confident as one can be with horrid acne. I had gotten use to it and was ok until I met a group of ppl in person I knew on Facebook and they called me a catfish.. It hurt to my... READ MORE

I'm a 26 yr old African American female and I have suffered with acne most or all of my life. Over the years of trying to get treatment, during the initial consultation, the first location the dermatologist or aesthetician looks is at my face. But unfortunately, its not my face that's the...

I went on 40 mgs of accutane for six months for the first time around the age of 21-22. At the time both my sister and brother had used accutane and since I struggled with acne since the age of 12 and tried antibiotics, birth controls, and every topical knownto man, I thought it was my turn. My... READ MORE

First and foremost, i have battled with acne, blackheads and millia since the tender age of 12. I am now 26...and i feel like 14 years is enough!!!! It clearly isn't just the hormones resulting from puberty! Acne has caused me a fair share of anxiety and depression over the years. From social... READ MORE

I was recently prescribed to accutane & didn't know about the 7 day rule or whatever so have to start the whole process over again but honestly, I'm really scared to go on it after some of the things I've read. I have terrible cystic acne, it is very painful & I hate even putting make up on bc... READ MORE

I had horrible acne all throughout middle school and high school and it continuously got worse. I tried creams and oral medication but nothing worked. I had severe acne on my back and chest and moderate acne on my face and neck. It made me very self conscious and before leaving for college I... READ MORE

I'm 21 years old and this review is about trying accutane for the first time. Today was my first pill, I was excited to try it so i can finally be acne free. And to be back to normal without worrying about my look and self esteem. I'm nervous about my acne getting worse in the first weeks and... READ MORE

I started on Accutane because I had a lot of little bumps that never really turned into spots, all over my face which left my face with terrible bumpy skin. I also had a moderate level of pimples, but i'd say something like average to a teenager ( I am 22 though). My pimples usually arrived... READ MORE

I'm just going to say that accutane should only be used for people that suffer with severe acne. I had mild acne and since my dad recommened it, I decided to go on it and now my acne is no more but my skin is uneven and I have alot of acne scars. Especially under certain lighting. I would not...

I have had acne for about 14 years. I have tried years worth of antibiotics and topicals and multiple combination of these.

I'm writing this review to track my own progress and to possibly help someone else make the decision for or against Accutane. I've suffered with acne since my preteen years and it's been pretty bad at different times in my life. I started a taking Ortho Tri-Cyclin Lo on Novemever 1st and my skin... READ MORE
