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 to not heal properly. I would get a cut or bug bite and it would last for weeks turning into a sore. I had cuts around the corner of my mouth and sores from acne just not healing. I also did not like having to get my blood drawn every month as required by my doctor to insure I was not pregnant. Did not see any improvement in my acne on the short time I was on it.
