Are the side effects of Accutane worth it
You need to decide what's best for you. I have prescribed low dose Accutane to people for 30 years and I will continue to do so because it is safe and effective. The side effects are much lower on a low dose, but if you simply are terrified of it, then no, the medication may not be right for you. Accutane is a cure for acne, but you may be more inclined to take something else that merely manages your acne. Consult with your doctor about your options.
