Know before you go: it's been linked to an increased risk of depression and can cause severe, life-threatening birth defects. Roche Pharmaceuticals officially stopped producing Accutane in 2009, though generic versions still exist. LEARN MORE ›

I have struggled with acne since I was 15. It's horrible. I can't wear summer clothes or a bathing suit for fear of exposing it. I feel like I'm always in hiding and I just want to be normal. I see other women with nice skin and it makes me feel hopeless knowing I will never have that. I'm tired... READ MORE

So, after a decade of horrible skin, I was finally prescribed accutane to treat my moderate acne. Generally, my worst acne (deep painful bumps) is localized to my chin-line and chin area, however I still get some smaller bumps and blackheads on my nose, forehead, and temples. My chest even...

I just started with Accutane on Monday at 30mg twice a day. I started on Accutane after using spironolactone for a year because of moderate acne. The last 6 months of that year I was at 150mg per day and that is what cleared my acne for the most part and decreased my breakouts to maybe 1 or 2 a... READ MORE

I began my Accutane journey not too long ago. Roughly three weeks ago, and I began to notice the symptoms of dry skin and dry lips immediately. Which I don't mind because it reassures me that the medication is working. The frustrating part is the fact that I am breaking out ridiculously. I... READ MORE

I have acne since I can remember, in high school, my face is always covered by acnes, and including my back and chest, and legs. After high school, I discover a facial wash that cured my acnes. So when in college, my face was very white and clear for the most part. I also became a pretty girl in... READ MORE

I had literally given up and decided that I would go ahead and do Accutane (although I didn't want to) because no doctor or products (I tried them ALL) had helped the adult acne I was experiencing for more than 10 years. The worst part was that I had it on my chest, back and shoulders as well. I... READ MORE

This is my first review of Accutane even though I've been on it since March 1st. So I'm sorry for the essay of a review. A little bit about myself, I've had mild - bad cystic acne since I was about 14, but it didn't begin to get worse until I was about 15. Like a lot of people that has acne, it... 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'm a 21 year old transgender male who is finally beginning accutane treatment. I've suffered from acne since I was around 13 years old. It was more severe my first run in with puberty. I've tried many different types of topical treatments and oral antibiotics throughout the years. The type of... READ MORE

I just started accutane today. I did extensive research on this medicine before I requested it from my dermatologist. I believe the benefits out weigh the risk, but I will track my progress and the side effects. I am on 40mg (20mg twice a day). I began my regiment with breakfast because the... 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 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

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 am only on my 3rd month of 40mg accutane and so far it is one of the best experiences i have gone through. I started with acne all over my face, nose, cheeks, chin you name it! It was mostly cystic. If you have any guestions I will be more then happy to answer them! My insurance covers most of... READ MORE

I have had acne for about 14 years. I have tried years worth of antibiotics and topicals and multiple combination of these. A lady told me about this drug in a nail salon she was currently on it and she said it was working for her. I have read the reviews and risks associated and I am willing to... READ MORE

So after struggling with moderate to severe acne since I was 13, my doctor finally decided to put me on accutane. I have tried everything. EVERYTHING. Nothing has ever worked. My self esteem is basically non-existent. I refuse to leave the house without makeup on (I haven't gone out without... READ MORE

I'm 21 and I have acne ever since I was 10. It was pretty bad for me and I got to a point that I was starting to have it even on my back and chest. I've tried everything from lotions, creams to soaps and minocin, IT DIDNT WORKED, NOTHING WORKED and I was still there wasting thousands of dollars... 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 so shocked to find out that Accutane has been discontinued. What a wonderful drug. I took it when I was 26, and now I'm 50. I had always had acne, since about 13. It was an embarrassment during high school. I didn't date, and people made fun of me. It got better during college and returned... READ MORE

Enough is enough and i am looking for a permanent solution. I had to stop accutane for 1 week, because i... READ MORE
