Pro's: Cleared face after 2 weeks with a minor initial breakout. Made my skin look like $1 million dollars. I could shave while walking down the street because no spots get through. I looked like the person I wanted to be. After using Accutane I had no reason to wash my face, it looked so... READ MORE

I am 15. I started getting acne in 5th grade and it got more and more severe. I became afraid of getting scarring and my acne was getting very bad. All i can say about this product is that it never effected me negatively besides drying me out, but it worked wonderfully. i was soooo afraid of... READ MORE

I struggled with severe acne for about 3 years. Itried everything under the sun, until I finally gave in and started the Accutane treatment. My ONLY regret is not starting this treatment sooner! I was treated for roughly 5-6 months. I did not see results right away, infact, my skin got... READ MORE

I had cystic acne all over my back and face that never went away. Ever since I was 13 I had it. I tried EVERYTHING, Tetracycline, Doxicyline, Benzacaine cream, and tons of other stuff. Nothing ever worked. So I did this as a last resort, my own dermatologist said he wouldn't prescribe it to... READ MORE

I never had much of an acne problem. But after several sessions of laser hair on my face I started to get lots of papular-pustular acne. I tried all the different topicals and antibiotics for acne. It also started on areas outside my face so maybe it was just my age (mid... READ MORE

I would highly recommend this acne treatment. I had tried everything, every type of topical cream and antibiotic possible. I chose to take Accutane because I had extremely bad acne. Acne had taken over my life where I felt bad about going out in public and definitely did not ever want to have a... READ MORE

When I was about 17, I was fed up. I had tried everything for my acne. My zits were beginning to get their own zits! I had tried everything over the counter and some of it seemed to make my skin get worse! Sea Breeze, Oxy Pads, Clearasil, ProActive...None of it worked. So, I went to the... READ MORE

I had Roacutane on my mind for years as several of my friends used it and I was so jealous of the results. I also knew about all the potential side effects so I always had question marks. I am 26 years old and had mild to moderate acne since the age of 16. Prior Roacutane I have tried everything... READ MORE

Started on Accutane because of extremely oily skin, and some very large and painful cystic acne due to hormonal changes. I stopped 2 weeks later. Couldn't handle the side effects. Now 2 months later my skin is still dry (I moisturies twice a day with Effaclar H), but what bothers me is that my... READ MORE

I had very oily skin with those deep hard painful cysts that would last for months, mostly around my mouth and chin but I would get them everywhere. I had them for years (from 14 to 23). I didn't want to go out and I often missed work. I had tried clindoxyl, antibiotics, doxycycline, and... READ MORE

I was hesitant to try this because of the side effects I read about. I am in my 5th month and so far so good, minimal side effects, dry skin and lips but nothing that lotion can't help so far. The lips have been the worst, but for the first time in 15 yrs I am completely clear! I do regret not... READ MORE

I just started taking Absorica, 30 mg per day, yesterday and I am hoping for the best outcome possible! My doctor recommend this treatment for me because the past topical creams, antibiotics, and steroids have not worked for my stubborn oily skin. Today marks the end of day two and so far I have...

I am a 25 year old female suffering from acne. I have tried a number of products to control my skin with no luck. Recently I asked my dermatologist about accutane and she agreed.

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 went to the doctor to get my monthly prescription for accutane on yesterday. He prescribed me a lip ointment bc my lips are severely dry in conjunction with using carmex . I haven't had any breakouts since I have been on accutane. I was on a 10% fading cream for the dark spots, but he has... 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
