Know before you go: it's been linked to an increased risk of depression and can cause severe, life-threatening birth defects. Roche Pharmaceuticals officially stopped producing Accutane in 2009, though generic versions still exist. LEARN 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

I am on my second week of Accutane. I have already started to notice a difference in the amount of pimples that I'd usually wake up to.

I just thought that I would post a warning about some permanent side effects I've contracted from accutane. I have this constant "visual snow" that is extremely annoying.
