I had struggled with bad acne on my face back and chest since I was 12. I would layer on the concealer and tried all the magical washes and oral prescriptions. NOTHING phased my hideous skin. I was so ridiculously depressed. I went to extreams and starting self mutilating my body because I... READ MORE

Im a 15 year old girl. Girls are always worried about their apperance. I started getting acne in 6th grade. It was so bad. I caked on makeup, but it just made it look worse. I would cry myself to sleep cause I looked so different from the other girls. I went to the dermatologist, and she gave me... READ MORE

I read prior to using it that it caused depression, but I thought "oh I am a happy person, I don't have to worry about that.. plus, nothing is worse that acne!" I went on it and it did clear my skin up... however, it made me super depressed. I didn't want to go out, looked in... READ MORE

If you have been searching for solutions for a multiple-year period, then please look no further. Accutane is your man. I started out with a lot of acne on my cheeks--medium sized cysts that would leave marks for up to 7 months after they were gone. I tried minocycline and doxycycline but... READ MORE

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

After hemming and hawing for the better part of 6 months, I finally got my prescription for Amnesteem today. My skin was not great through high school, I tried everything-- antibiotics worked for me every time. I made it through college all the way to age 25 with breakouts but nothing major.... READ MORE

I am starting accutane in 3 days and I feel alone and scared. After trying (and failing) to express my fears to family and friends (none of which have dealt with severe acne), I decided maybe this would be a good place to go to talk about my journey. I have been suffering from moderate-severe... READ MORE

Hello, So this is my first post about my Accutane/Roaccutane journey. I'm a 22-year-old female from the UK and I thought I would share my journey. I have to admit I'm nervous yet excited. It's been a long time coming and I cannot wait to begin and hopefully see results. I've suffered from... READ MORE

Hello everyone! Long story short, I am a 25-year-old male that has suffered from mild to moderate Acne, possible severe at times. Like most of you, just plain old sick of pimples, redness and lack of confidence. Story - I have been on Accutane since August 1st, 2014 until now (November 12th,... READ MORE

I had very oily skin and scalp. I used Accutane for almost a year and it helped dry up the oil and completely cleared up my skin. Today, I have never get blemishes. Pros: It's been years since I was on it and I didn't have any side effects. The results were permanent. The cons:... READ MORE

Be ready for some wicked side effects. This stuff is very powerful and does a number to your body. I recommend taking it seriously and being cautious with your body while taking it. Muscles and joints are very weak and I threw my back out several times (and i don't have back problems).... 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...
