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 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

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

My face was perfectly clear up until about 18 when I started taking birth control and since then my face broke out. I had a bunch of little tiny zits all over and tried literally everything and finally my dermatologist suggested accutane. I was so hesitant because I've only heard bad things. 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 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'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

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

It saved my life, even though it does make your skin worse before it gets better, it is so worth it in the end. I'm so thankful that there is something out there like roaccatane, I can't thank it enough. my life is so much better, I'm happy now :) I know how heartbreaking it is and now there is... 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

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...

Well I lost my first post so I'll be short and sweet. Week 1 , 80 mg starting dose Side effects - minor small bumps on neck and around edge of face. Currently no active cysts , last active was going away before I started and is almost gone. Past experience includes pros with history of hair... READ MORE

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

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

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

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 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

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
