I had acne from about age 13 to 23. I tried home remedies, over the counter acne products, and the whole run of prescriptions for acne from creams to antibiotics. I took Accutane for 6 months and a year later still had some breakouts. Took again 3 months and rarely have pimples now. The only... READ MORE

I have gone through many acne treatments, creams, antibiotics, facial regimens, prescription cleansers, ointments, organic solutions you name it. Although most of the motivation to start accutane was my mother forcing me to try it, so I did. I took it for eight months and let me tell you, I had... READ MORE

I read all the reviews on here and will be honest, I was scared. But I had a very upfront and honest conversation with my doctor and since you see them every month felt comfortable about giving accutane a try. Only side effect was chapped lips. And 1 year later, I am 100% acne free. Give it a shot!! READ MORE

I'm currently 24, and had been suffering from acne breakouts since as long as I can remember. I had also had the oiliest skin....ever. My makeup rubbed off on everything I touched, I always looked gross, and fresh out of a shower, except I wasn't clean. I was always self conscious of this, and... READ MORE

I've been on a low does of 20mg per day for about two months now and I can't believe the results! I had an awful first month of initial breakouts that was the worse acne I have ever had. I was getting frustrated and then towards the end of month 2 my skin texture changed and it was smooth! I... READ MORE

I started getting cystic acne at the age of 12, and it totally ruined my life. None of my friends had anything similar, and so I was always the one who was stared at in public. That same year i went to the doctor and he gave me about 4 doses of different antibiotics, and lots of topical... READ MORE

I had terrible skin before I started accutane. It was to the point that my entire face, there was not a spot without a zit on it.The pros about it is that it cleared up my skin and now I have less oil on my face. The cons about it is that it really dried my skin, lips and nose out leading to... READ MORE

As a child I've always had stubborn acne covering my cheeks, forehead, and chin. My acne would leave horrible embarrassing red-marks and I would always hide. There were no treatments that would relieve my breaks out. I would use many brands of benzoyl peroxide but my condition continued to... READ MORE

I started on Claravis about 3 months ago. I had side effects such as being dizzy, body aches, being tired all the time and feeling sick often. Last visit my doctor switched me to Amnesteem.

I am a 22 year old female that has been struggling with moderate acne for as long as I can remember.

Hi everyone, i am on 30 mg of accutane twice a day. i started this treatment 3 and a half months ago and it was completely worth the side effects which were dry face and lips. However this things can be fixed using a cetaphil cream for your face and aquaphor for your lips. This medication was... READ MORE

I have been on Accutane for just over a month now. People continually warned me about their experiences and scary stories that they heard but this past month has been amazing! I noticed a difference in a day! I had moderate acne and nothing seemed to clear it up. My doctor had put me on... READ MORE

First of all if your doctor mentions accutane, take it! If you think your acne is really bad and other medications just dont work and the acne comes back after you get off them, ask your doctor about accutane! yes you have to get your blood drawn and go see the doctor every month for six months,...

Accutane is my miracle drug. I was a little intimidated at first, reading all the mixed reviews about the drug and it's many possible side effects. I am 27 years old and tried every other possible option you can imagine. You name it, I have tried it. My skin was not that bad to start, but always... 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
