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

Hello everyone! I can't tell you how excited I am to start the medication. I've suffered from acne since the 5th grade so this is long overdue. Both my mother and sister have been on accutane three times (each time the severity of their acne decreases) and it changed their life. I was hoping... READ MORE

I have began taking 10mg Accutane capsules and my skin is breaking out horribly. I wake up to new zits, whiteheads or small pimples that turn into massive zits the very next day. My doctor says he is giving me a low dose because he doesn't want me to "flare up" but I would rather get it over... READ MORE

Heyyy everyone! I am a 20 year old girl(african background) battling acne for the past 7 years. I started getting little random spots when i was around 11 but i put it down to a change in the enviroment as i had just recently moved to the Uk. As i adjusted to the enviroment i just got random...

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

Hi guys :) Thought I would use this as a journal for myself as well as giving others some more information about my experience. I have had persistent acne from the age of 14 and have always been paranoid of it. I would never wear t-shirts or dresses if I could avoid it and for me, I struggled... READ MORE

I am a 20 year old female. I have been dealing with acne since I was 12 or 13. I have tried everything. I have been using Epiduo for the last year (hence why my skin isn't absolutely terrible). When I do break out, the pimples are under the skin and extremely painful. My doctor has been trying... READ MORE

Ok so i have been battling acne since age 12 as the title suggests. I've been through at least 4 dermatologists with little success. Until my recent one, she put me on antibiotics which worked great however, after 3 months of being off of it, the acne came back with full force so she decided to... READ MORE

I finally decided to try Accurane after trying everything else out there! I'm on 40mg once a day. So far so good the only side effects have been dry lips (been packing on Vaseline atleast 10 times a day and they are still perfectly soft) dry itchy skin, my hands are starting to chap so I bought...

I went my whole life and had only mild, hormonal acne. All of a sudden at age 35..I start getting really bad acne, mostly on my cheeks. Its been extremely embarrassing and has really taken a toll on my confidence. I'll be starting Accutane after my Dec 4th appt. Anyone around my age got any... READ MORE

Today I bit the bullet and decided to see a dermatologist that I was referred to by my local GP. Despite the side affects of Accutane, I took the next step! I am 22 and have had acne for ever since I can remember. After each birth of my two children, my skin would get worse each time. So to... READ MORE

Gday! Today I saw a dermatologist and she concluded that its time for me to go back on accutane. (first time was in 2011 with great results). I am 23 and basically I am fed up with acne ruining my confidence so i'm more than happy to go back on it. After my previous course I stayed clear until... READ MORE

I have been suffering from acne since middle school. Now I'm 32 and a mother of 3... didn't think I would still have acne at this age. I have been to many well known dermatologist in Dallas. I have tried many different topicals, antibiotics, chemical peels, light therapy, microderm, & skincare... READ MORE

I am a 32yo female who has always had a issue with mild acne. I was on birth control pills for over 12 years. 2 years ago I went off and had a iud put in. Ever since then my acne has gone crazy. The dermatologist has put me on doxy, several different topicals and even a high blood pressure med... READ MORE

Accutane worked miracles with me. At the beginning of this year my skin was worse than ever, as shown in my "before" pictures. I had the kind of acne that you cannot cover up with makeup, and it was all over my face, chest, and back. Gross. I had been going to a dermatologist for my acne for 3... READ MORE

After all I had read about Accutane, I was pretty scared going into my treatment in early September of 2013. As I took my first little orange pill, I was terrified. I had heard so much about the horrifying side effects of the "miracle drug", and, being a bit of a hypochondriac, I took to the... READ MORE

I had originally taken Accutane when I was 16 years old. It was working, however, I was at a stage in my life where the situations around me were detrimental to my emotional and mental well-being. Accutane is known to cause (or even potentially surface) depression so unfortunately, I was... READ MORE

I plan to keep you all updated on my Journey with Accutane. I went to the Dermatologist yesterday morning and told my doctor about how my acne hadn't gotten any better with the products I had previously been prescribed. She described my acne as mild to moderate but thinks that Accutane will help... READ MORE

Battled acne for almost 10 years. It was bearable until age 24. It has gotten worse around the cheek area. My dermatologist had been trying to get me to go on isotretinoin (accutane) for almost 2 years but I was hesitant. Finally I decided to go for it. I didn't want to ruin my skin any longer....
