It's working well on my acne but I seem to have vaginal problems more frequently. I am 42 yrs old, been on it for about 5 months now my problems didn't start til the 4th month. I have lost about 30 pounds on it also, I was real sick at first with vomiting during the day after I'd take it, I... READ MORE

I am currently 16 years old. When I was 15 I had really bad acne, my self esteem was low and I hated going out purely because of how many spots I had on my face. During the process everything was fine, the only thing I hated about the check ups was that I had to have a few blood tests throughout... READ MORE

I started getting acne in grade 9 and finally decided to start accutane when I was 22. I was on accutane for 6 months. My acne was between moderate and severe. I usually get very large pimples that stay infected and noticeable for anywhere between a week and 2 weeks. Accutane made me feel... READ MORE

As a young adult, I continued to experience moderate problems with acne on my face. I tried topical creams and cleansers, but those products either dried my skin out and made it worse, or didn't work at all! After consulting with my dermatologist, I agreed to start taking Accutane. I endured... READ MORE

It has been one year since I stopped my treatment and my skin is still oil and zit free! It was a tough road though. I had suffered from mild depression in the past but I never have felt truley suicidal before. About 4 months in to my treatment I started to feel severly agro. I have two children... READ MORE

I want to write this review because I think a lot of people who are contemplating going on Accutane will not because of all the negative reviews. That was me. I was so scared of everything that I read, that I almost didn't go on it. You will find that most people who had negative experiences are... READ MORE

I tried it last summer for my severe acne I mean it was horrible I had tried everything From proactive to murad and nothing seemed to work . Finally my parents decided that I should go see a derm. He prescribed Accutane and I was on it for about 6-7 months I think the side effects (Bloody noses,... READ MORE

I took Accutane when I was 19 for four months. Initially my acne got worse, especially on my face, and the dryness caused as a side effect made me look like a mess! Towards the end of the treatment I was concerned that there was not much of an improvement, but my dermatologist said the best... READ MORE

I used isotretion for over two years. The last year I only used it for the first week of the month. I should have noticed something ealier.. And, I kick myself every day for not getting off of this horrible drug. Suddenly I was really fragile for winter and the "darkness" (I live in Northern... READ MORE

I got the generic brand, and literally later the day of taking my first pill i started seeing and feeling a difference, for only 10 dollars...i was worried about the side affects because of bad stories all over the internet but i figured it couldnt be any worse that what ive taken before lol...

Prior to accutane, I had been on almost every acne medicine on the market (Adapalene (Differin), Clindamycin, Retin-A, benzoyl peroxide, oral minocycline...) and nothing had worked. I would stay on one of these medications for at least 6 months before giving up and switching to a new one. These... READ MORE

Ive been suffering with moderate CONSISTANT and sometimes cystic acne for 11 years. Started 20 mg of accutane 2 weeks ago (finally) and already see a huge difference. No more oily face or hair!!!!! Now I can wash my hair every 4th day instead of everyday its so exciting and saves so much time...... READ MORE

I finished up with my course of roaccutane about five years ago. While my skin did improve, it did not clear up, and within a year my skin was exactly as it was before starting roaccutane. I was lucky in that I didn't have any major side effects, but I did have dry eyes, very dry skin (as... READ MORE

When I was a senior in high school I broke out with a moderate to severe case of acne on my face and back. My dermatologist suggest I use a prescription drug called Accutane. I was so relieved to have a solution I did not even question the possible side effects or do any research on the drug. It... READ MORE

Please please consider it! I had severe acne during high school and was deeply self conscious about it, i would cover my face in make up which did nothing whatsoever. Then I tried accutane and it worked so well! Even though it does take a while to see some changes, it really does work. I... READ MORE

I used Accutane when I was 14 and again when I was 16. I never used more than the recommended dosage, but at 30, I still have side effects from acne. Starting in my early 20's, I had severe stomach aches and was tested for everything under the sun. The doctors at the best medical school in the... READ MORE

As I enter my last day of accutane treatment I realize it has truly been a journey. This time last year I was dealing with one of the worst bumps I had ever had. I had terrible cystic acne on my face and would never know when the next bump was going to come. This lasted through college and... READ MORE

I am 13 and ive had very bad acne since i was 11. it was so bad i wouldnt even want to go to school and it made me have a super low self esteem. i went to the dermatologist and he gave me all kinds of pills and creams and washes but nothing really worked. so it came to the point where he thought...

At age 44 after battling acne for close to 35 yrs and trying every rx, home ready, witch dr any snake oil that I could find I am FINALLY giving in and starting Accutane. After the lengthy prep process to begin I will be picking up my rx from the pharmacy tomorrow. While I know there are many... READ MORE

While Accutane is not for everyone, I would certainly recommend trying it. I put it off for a couple years because I read about the bad side effects online and felt that my acne was not severe enough to warrrant trying it. My doctor said they have found great results for people with moderate to... READ MORE
