Accutane is a prescription oral medication used to treat severe acne. A form of Vitamin A, the drug reduces the amount of oil released by the skin. 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'm 32 years old woman. I've been suffering from bad cystic acne since a long time at least 10years due to hormone imbalance. Been so nervous to take accutane. I've tried everything but nothing worked. I'm giving accutane a go this is my last desperate solution. Fingers cross it will work.... READ MORE

Prior to the doctor who prescribed me the accutane, I was prescribe by other doctor an anti biotic and I was takin that for 5 months... I had acne since I went to college and since then I never get a chance to have a flawless skin.. In 2005 I tried using proactiv, it works actually especially... 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 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

This review is more focused on the real cost break down. I'll update my results monthly. I've noticed many really low numbers that don't mimic my personal costs. I have decent insurance, so I was curious if people were just listing their copay for the medication and not everything else that's... 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

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 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

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...

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

Hi, I am 22 years old and I have been battling cystic acne ever since I was 11. It started right after I got the chicken pox. Once the chicken pox cleared, boom I had acne, which than turned into cystic acne. Painful and not fun. Sometimes I would beg my mom to miss a day of school due to it... READ MORE

After hemming and hawing for the better part of 6 months, I finally got my prescription for Amnesteem today. My skin was not great through high school, I tried everything-- antibiotics worked for me every time. I made it through college all the way to age 25 with breakouts but nothing major.... 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

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

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...

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

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
