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 ›

My acne started around the time I began middle school and kept getting worse over time. Nothing I used worked, and believe me, I've tried all of the drug store products. Accutane is the only thing that has ever worked. I've been using it for seven months now, and I can honestly say that I love... READ MORE

Since hitting puberty at the age of 11 years old, I have had acne all over my face. I didn't have big, nodular pimples, but instead a million little bumps every where.

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.

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 starting on my second month of Claravis, a generic of Accutane, at 40mg twice per day (80mg). During my first month, my dermatologist started me off at 40mg once per day to help my body get used to the side effects and gradually build up to a higher dosage. For the first few weeks, I...

Hi there. I am a 21 year old young woman who is considering Accutane. I've read about many of the awful side effects which make me very hesitant to commit to the medicine. I would consider my acne to be moderate. I get bumps under my skin on my cheeks/forehead and lots of blackheads around my... READ MORE
