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

I'm sure if a doctor really had a good handle on how to use Accutane in combination and timing with other treatments that it might prove worthy, but I was on it a year and a half and my face is ruined with scars. I believe I should have been administered chemical peels through my break outs. ... READ MORE

I have struggled with acne since I was 15. It's horrible. I can't wear summer clothes or a bathing suit for fear of exposing it. I feel like I'm always in hiding and I just want to be normal. I see other women with nice skin and it makes me feel hopeless knowing I will never have that. I'm tired... READ MORE

I am a female suffering from persistent acne for 17 years. I am now 36 years old. It is moderate and at rare times mild but it is chronic. Even if a week or 2 pass without any new pimples, I would be still struggling to cover the red post acne marks. By the time these fade or about to fade, I... READ MORE

I began Claris (Accutane) in mid Jan. 2015 for mild cystic acne. I am 150 pounds and the derm wanted me to take 40 mg for one month and then 70 mg for the next 5. The first month I was very tired and had joint pain. The second month, at 70 mg, I was still very tired, moody, and had terrible back... READ MORE

I'm 21 and I have acne ever since I was 10. It was pretty bad for me and I got to a point that I was starting to have it even on my back and chest. I've tried everything from lotions, creams to soaps and minocin, IT DIDNT WORKED, NOTHING WORKED and I was still there wasting thousands of dollars... READ MORE

First Update: I've been struggling with acne for about 5 years now, ever since I finished high school. (I'll upload pics later on). I've tried it all, much like the rest of you - Proactive, anti-biotics, creams, scrubs, and everything in between. Sometimes the acne would recede a little, but... READ MORE

I have battled acne my whole life but it wasn't until I was 40 that I started getting deep painful cyst acne. My dermatologist also believes I have some rosacea also so he prescribed me accutane. I take 40mg on odd days and 80mg on even days. I have taken my 12 pill and I have broken out... READ MORE

I've been experiencing severe acne for about 6 months. My GP prescribed me some creams and pills, but after a month with no results I was referred to Davin Lim. Davin has given me Accutane, and although other treatments were ineffective, this is apparently sure to work. I have very dry skin,... READ MORE

I'm a 26 year old female and I've had pretty severe acne since I was in middle school. I've tried everything. Antibiotics, pills, face washes, acne facials, pore extractions, diets, & topical gels. To name just a few. Accutane has always been in the back of my mind but I've always been wary of... READ MORE
