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'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

I'm a 26 yr old African American female and I have suffered with acne most or all of my life. Over the years of trying to get treatment, during the initial consultation, the first location the dermatologist or aesthetician looks is at my face. But unfortunately, its not my face that's the...

I had horrible acne all throughout middle school and high school and it continuously got worse. I tried creams and oral medication but nothing worked. I had severe acne on my back and chest and moderate acne on my face and neck. It made me very self conscious and before leaving for college I... READ MORE

I started on Accutane because I had a lot of little bumps that never really turned into spots, all over my face which left my face with terrible bumpy skin. I also had a moderate level of pimples, but i'd say something like average to a teenager ( I am 22 though). My pimples usually arrived... READ MORE

I'm just going to say that accutane should only be used for people that suffer with severe acne. I had mild acne and since my dad recommened it, I decided to go on it and now my acne is no more but my skin is uneven and I have alot of acne scars. Especially under certain lighting. I would not...
