I couldn't leave the house without makeup, and sometimes I couldn't leave the house at all. I finally decided to go on Accutane... READ MORE

Today I started taking my first accutane capsule! :) I was put on 20mg every second day by my skin doctor for the 1st 2 weeks. And if I tolerate it well, I'm going to take 20mg every day. I'm a 15 year old female and has moderately severe acne. Tomorrow is Monday, and I'm pretty nervous because... READ MORE

This was the best decision I ever made! Last summer I didn't leave my house due to how bad my acne was. I started Accutane at the end of August and it worked immediately. I can't describe how good it felt to finally wake up to the feeling of clear skin! I had no bad side effects except for dry lips! READ MORE
