I had acne from about age 13 to 23. I tried home remedies, over the counter acne products, and the whole run of prescriptions for acne from creams to antibiotics. I took Accutane for 6 months and a year later still had some breakouts. Took again 3 months and rarely have pimples now. The only side effects I had were dry, flaking skin, very sensitive to sun and scarring. No depression/suicidal thoughts, tummy problems. I feel like I have born-again skin. It is nothing like it was before. It is normal/combination now and the scars are hard to see. I would do it again in a second and I tell many many people about my experience with Accutane.
