Accutane Review - my Experience

I was 16 and unfortunetly suffered from severe acne. Not on my back or any other body part - only on my face- and i say only with some hesitation, it was enough. My family used to tell me to 'accept it' that 'it is normal', though i didn't feel at all comfortable- i was probably the person in my class with the worst skin. It caused me a lot of pain, problems with my self confidence and relationship building. Finally, i decided on my own to go to a dermatologist who prescribed accurane. Yes, in the beginning it was somewhat painful. Dry lips, skin and even my bones in my hands i could feel were painful..... Was it worth it? YES!! After about 6 monthes, i discovered that i could have clear skin. I could now look in the mirror and say ' hey- i look good!'

So now at 32, I see my nephew who is 15 is starting to have severe acne as well. I ordered some accutane for him online at the same place i get my RETINA (a cream I now use to maintain my clear complexion). I ordered him the tabs from online - much less expensive then going to meet the dr, get a prescription and pay retail. Anyways, he's very thankful. He's on his 2.5 monthes now and the results are already showing. I recommend it to all who suffer in silence

I'm really glad to hear what a difference Accutane made for you, and it was very compassionate of you to help your nephew. However, I know it is a pretty serious medication that can have many side effects, so the thought of not being watched over by a physician while on the drug seems risky to me.

Yes yes of course i brought him to the dr- im just saying its cheaper online, and when i was a kid, no one was there to help me understand, give me choices, and let me know that i didnt have to go through this alone. Of course - its always better to first obtain advice from a doctor- but once that is done- why pay more than you have to?

My rating goes to the dr who basically saved my skin , but especially to accutane which put a stop to my severe acne
