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

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 have had acne for about 12 years. I have never had clear skin since I was a little kid. For a while, my acne was fairly mild, but last year it started getting worse all of a sudden. My doctor put me on antibiotics, and just as they started to help, I developed an allergy to them. Next I tried... 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 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

Hello, my names Kat, Im 21 and I moved to Malaysia around 1 year and a half ago. I have always had perfect skin living in Britain but 6 months into moving here suddenly my skin started going crazy. I suffer from an under active thyroid problem and I thought this was the cause, due to hormonal... 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

I have struggled with acne since my teens and have tried everything - numerous types of BC pills/antibiotics/topical treatments. Doctors have been hesitant to prescribe Accutane to me (probably because they see birth control pills as the less risky choice for females). Now, at 30, and after... 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....

Finally got my prescription for accutane yesterday. I have been dealing with acne since I was 12. It started out with a clear face but would get one big cyst on my chin at a time gradually it would get worse with two to three on my chin. When I was about 15 it started to spread to my forehead....

My last option was always accutane. I tried topicals and different birth controls. Nothing worked. My severe and cystic acne remained and I was an emotional mess. I couldn't leave the house without makeup, and sometimes I couldn't leave the house at all. I finally decided to go on Accutane... READ MORE

Today I started taking my first accutane capsule! :) I was put on 20mg every second day by my skin doctor for the 1st 2 weeks. And if I tolerate it well, I'm going to take 20mg every day. I'm a 15 year old female and has moderately severe acne. Tomorrow is Monday, and I'm pretty nervous because... READ MORE

This was the best decision I ever made! Last summer I didn't leave my house due to how bad my acne was. I started Accutane at the end of August and it worked immediately. I can't describe how good it felt to finally wake up to the feeling of clear skin! I had no bad side effects except for dry lips! 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

My skin has been horrible since 7th grade. I have always looked as if I was going through puberty even as an adult. As a thirty year old woman, I was very embarrassed that by the huge puss filled bumps that were big even after I popped them. I'm African American so after the bumps went away... READ MORE

I have been battling acne for 4 years and it has been a nuisance in my life. It is everywhere--face, back, shoulders, chest and a little bit on my stomach too--it's gross. I have prescribed everything under the sun and I finally decided to ask for accutane and my doctor agreed. I have been on... READ MORE
