I have had problems with acne since my middle school and it was getting worst until 2 years ago ( I am 22 years old now). Because I have been living in Sydney, I had the chance to use 'proactive' for a year (it's a big no, not a long term acne solution). I decided to stop after 1 year and my... READ MORE

I suffered from acne since I was 12. I remember starting to get pimples and my mom just bought me some Oxy Pads from the drug store and they worked for junior high. Then in high school they stopped working and I switched to the Clinique 3 step acne products, which were very effective. However,... READ MORE

I have had acne since I was 12 years old. It continued to get worse and worse the older I got. When I was 17 I was sick of dealing with it. I had tried multiple different face washes and cleansers. I finally decided it was time to make a trip to the dermatologist. They gave me two types of... READ MORE

After trying over 8 prescription medications for my acne (both creams and oral pills), I finally decided to try accutane. Despite all the negative aspects about Accutane that I read online, I am so happy I have it a try. After the first month, my blackheads were gone and my bigger pimples werent... READ MORE

Hello, I am 26 and have mild but very persistent acne. My doctor decided to put me on a 5 month course of 20. I take one tablet daily and have been doing this for three weeks. My skin has just got worse and worse from week one and I am starting to panic and loose faith. My skin is now the... READ MORE

Accutane was the last resort for me to clear my acne. Truthfully my acne wasn't awful. I suffered from facial acne for years and occasionally had acne on my back. However, I was at the point that I couldn't remember the last time my face was clear and I was also developing the potential for... READ MORE

I am 31 yes old and I honestly can't remember what I look like with clear skin! My acne became worse after the birth of my daughter 11 years ago! I have spent $1000's of dollars in dermatologists and treatments, nothing seemed to truly work! I have tried everything, antibiotics, anti fungals,... READ MORE

I am for months into Claravis (Accutane) at 60mg daily. I had mild cystic acne, with cysts that lasted for months and were sore and painful. I'd get them around my mouth and between my eyes. It hurt even to talk sometimes. I was so embarrassed. In for months my blackheads are long gone, my cysts... READ MORE

I'm 17 years old & I have been on accutane for almost 5 months. I was really scared to start because as I read all the posts about it, it sounded really scary. I had been going to the dermatologist since about 6th grade & different antibiotics & creams would work for a small amount of time, but... READ MORE

Was on it 20 years ago and was one of the best things that I ever did. Did cause much initial peeling but put a halt to many years of acne and has kept me relatively clear for the past 26 years. Afterwards, the acne that I did get was mild and sporadic and cleared super fast. Definitely worth it... READ MORE

Doctor told me it was a miracle drug and was extremely excited to put me on it. I didnt have cystic acne in the first place. It was very mild teenage acne. They mainly expressed the teratogenic side effects and seeing as I was not planning on getting pregnant, I didnt worry too much about that.... READ MORE

I've had acne since I was a teenager, I'm now 37 years old. I've tried every medication out there. Minocyline worked great for about 5 years but as with any antibiotic I grew resistant and the side effects caught up to me. So there I was breaking out again with giant cyst like acne all over my...
