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 had acne on my face, chest and back since I was 12, and after two years of antibiotics and topicals I was looking at Accutane as a last resort. After 6 months on a 30mg dose of Roaccutane, my skin was perfect. I got the occasional pimple from my period but for the next three years I had all... READ MORE

I plan to keep you all updated on my Journey with Accutane. I went to the Dermatologist yesterday morning and told my doctor about how my acne hadn't gotten any better with the products I had previously been prescribed. She described my acne as mild to moderate but thinks that Accutane will help... READ MORE

I have acne since I can remember, in high school, my face is always covered by acnes, and including my back and chest, and legs. After high school, I discover a facial wash that cured my acnes. So when in college, my face was very white and clear for the most part. I also became a pretty girl in... READ MORE

If you are considering taking accutane, I fully recommend it. I was 16 years old when I started it and my face was broken out all over the place. I tried dermatologist medications I took pills and tried over the counter washes and ointments. Nothing worked. I would not leave the house without... READ MORE

I have suffered from acne since age 13, it actually got better after trying tetracycline. However it still got back, I have bumps on my neck, oily skin, old acne scars and dark spots on face. Enough is enough and i am looking for a permanent solution. I had to stop accutane for 1 week, because i... READ MORE

Acne runs in my family. However, my acne only started when I was 20 years old. I started getting cystic acne on my jaw line, by my ears and it eventually spread to my cheeks. Acne has severely affected my self esteem to the point where I sometimes avoid going in public. When I'm out and... READ MORE

My name is Je'Lynn and I'm 19 years old. I've had acne ever since I was in middle school. It's always been unpleasant but i figured it would go away towards the end of high school like my older sister's did. It never went away and actual got completely worse my freshman year of college. I was so... READ MORE

I had literally given up and decided that I would go ahead and do Accutane (although I didn't want to) because no doctor or products (I tried them ALL) had helped the adult acne I was experiencing for more than 10 years. The worst part was that I had it on my chest, back and shoulders as well. I... READ MORE

This is my first review of Accutane even though I've been on it since March 1st. So I'm sorry for the essay of a review. A little bit about myself, I've had mild - bad cystic acne since I was about 14, but it didn't begin to get worse until I was about 15. Like a lot of people that has acne, it... READ MORE

I'm a 21 year old transgender male who is finally beginning accutane treatment. I've suffered from acne since I was around 13 years old. It was more severe my first run in with puberty. I've tried many different types of topical treatments and oral antibiotics throughout the years. The type of... 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'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'm so shocked to find out that Accutane has been discontinued. What a wonderful drug. I took it when I was 26, and now I'm 50. I had always had acne, since about 13. It was an embarrassment during high school. I didn't date, and people made fun of me. It got better during college and returned... READ MORE

I have struggled with acne (everything from cystic acne to blackheads and pitted whiteheads) since I was 11. I was embarrassed my whole life and avoided all sorts of activities and events because of my embarrassment and low self esteem. I started about three months ago on 60mg for six months. I...

I am a 32 year old female and have had acne for almost ten years now. Since starting my teaching job, between the stress hormonal changes, and having a child acne has ruled my face. It has come and gone and I have tried many different acne methods both medical and natural. I finally had enough... READ MORE

I am a 41 year old mother that has had many battles with acne. My acne had gotten so bad that my pimples were painful. I, unfortunately, would pick at them and pop them just to have some relief. But that was not the right thing to do. I would get open sores on my face and they would take... READ MORE

I'm more than halfway into my 6 month treatment and more than anything (dry skin, mild temporary eczema on my hands, nosebleeds, impetigo on my lip from the dry lips, dry eyes) my dry lips have been the worst of it. I found myself putting on lip balm every 15 minutes or so just to keep my lips... READ MORE

4/15/2015 Today is the first day I'm starting the generic brand of Accutane (Zentane). For some unknown reason Accutane is on back order. Meaning they aren't producing enough for the demand or the company is calling it back because of issues with the drug OR it could be a completely different... READ MORE
