Started Accutane when I was 17 years old for acne (cysts, whiteheads, blackheads). Was on the drug for only 3-4 months because it caused me pain in joints/lower back, felt sluggish and sick at times. I wanted it to work so much for me since it worked "miracles" for friends, but it caused my skin... READ MORE

Well today is my first day on the treatment and my dermatologist has me on 1 20mg a day, with the aim to build up to two a day. The reason for starting on a lesser treatment is to try to make the expected initial breakout not too extreme. I've read about all the possible side effects of this... READ MORE

I'll start by saying I love my doctor. I've been on claravis 30mg for one month now, went for a follow up and refill but Costco did not have my meds available at the time I needed them. With that being said, I went to heb near where I live because they had the dosage I needed, however I feel as... READ MORE

Since Accutane is banned in the US, I was prescribed its generic Claravis, half dose, of 20mg. My derm suggested half dose since my acne was mild but persistent. (I've had breakouts for 15 years and finally decided to do something about it when it got worse in my 30's, I wish I hadnt waited). I... READ MORE

Like others I feel like I have tried everything to clear up my acne. I am a 29 year old female and have had acne since early teenage years onward. I didn't actually see my first derm until early 20's. So yea I have also tried several combos of meds but keep building a resistance. I go in tumor... READ MORE

This is my second cycle of accutane my acne came completely back after I stopped taking it. It has honestly had very negative effects on me and it has made me very depressed I know three people who have a similar experience. So I'd like I warn everyone if you have had depression be careful with... READ MORE

I had been to every dermatologist in town, had my hormones checked, and spent tons of money on treatments with estheticians - nothing worked. Finally they decided to try Accutane, and being young, desperate and uninformed I took it. It REALLY dried me out - skin, lips, hair, eyes - and I wasn't... READ MORE

I was in high school and we all know how cruel other students can be. I used to be a 'crater face'. My skin is now beautifully clear. I just wish I'd known of if earlier - I wasted 5 years fighting my doctors for a referral to a real dermatologist - for 5 years my acne went from bad to worse, I... READ MORE

I was put on Accutane when it had only been on the market for 5 years, so it was relatively new. This was in 1993 at the age of 19. After battling years of severe cystic acne (acne started in 4th grade for me and by 15 it was on my face, chest and back), so I finally sought out professional help... READ MORE

I have always have severe nodular acne (level 4). It started early I can't remember exactly when. I have never felt good about my skin. I have tried EVERYTHING. I have been to 2 different dermatologists (because of a move) both have very different approaches to acne. With either of them nothing... READ MORE

So I guess this isn't a complete experience guide since I've only been on it for 15 days so far, but I AM seeing results. I started out with cystic acne on the sides of my face and pimples on my forehead prior to treatment. I've been dealing with acne since the beginning of teen-hood, but when I... READ MORE

I am Hailey, I just turned 16 and I was on accutaine for 7 months. I don't have any before pictures because I refused to get in pictures, or at least close up shots. I started getting acne when I was about 10 and my doctor tried everything from antibiotics to topical creams. My acne would get... READ MORE

Basically after showing my dermatologist my list of different cleansers and other topical creams I've used he offered me to do a course of accutane. I had moderate acne and since topical treams and antibiotics didn't seem to be doing too much to it he gave me the choice to get on isotretinoin.... READ MORE

I took accutane in my 20's after trying very thing else for my moderate non-cystic acne with great results. I shared Accutane with my brother in law that had severe cystic acne and scarring and he also had great results- neither one of us had to repeat although bro in law has taken antibiotics...

The summer before my freshmen year I had severe acne(cystic) on my face and back mostly, some on my chest.. Before school started I got laser treatments done i guess to kill those huge knots and my dermo also helped me get all the junk out of the cysts.. But it wasn't until my junior year of... READ MORE

Thank you for sharing your comments. I've taken doxycycline and minocycline with no success in clearing up my acne. I've been taking Accutane 40mg for 2 months now. I've had some horrible breakouts on my face and neck during my second month of treatment! I would get about 3 or 4 cysts at a time!... READ MORE
