Caused Severe Depression and Suicidal Thoughts - Lancaster, CA

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 the mirror and still saw my old skin, cried constantly. It was just not good. And after 2 years of being clear, my acne came back anyway. I would not suggest Accutane to anyone. When my acne came back I did monthly microderms and chemical peels while on Menocycline for a couple months. That has cleared me up since : ) Prior to all that, I had tried everything and nothing ever worked. Microderms are the way to go. Much more natural approach than Accutane.

Keep in mind it might take 2 to 4 treatments of Accutane for the acne to go away permenantly. My sister was on it twice before it worked and I'm on my second dose. I noticed hardly much change during the first term, but this time I see a huge change! I'm only on my 3rd month and my acne is almost completely gone. I'm still going to go the whole 5mons because I want to make sure it doesn't come back. Also, for those who it came back, keep in mind you should still see your dermatologist monthly and keep a rigid skin care daily regimen using Retin-A and Benzol Perioxide cleansers and creams. Diet is a big part of acne top, eat less oily foods and sugar and cram your diet veggies and fruits. I mean a ridiculous amount of veggies. I'm sorry that some had a bad experience. I feel for you, I guess it's not forever one. However, I highly recommend this!! It worked for me 100%
