I remember having acne since I was 11/12 years. I took it for the first time when I was 17, second time when 21, and this is mi third time at 26. I have to mention that my acne really improved and that the results are completely amazing. My skin is even better than the one from the people who had never suffered acne. The only thing that makes me sad, is that this result does not last forever, even if my acne is not as bad as when i took accutane (roaccutane in my country) the first time, greasiness returns to my face and so the luminosity I adquire with the drug.
The first time I took it, I had a TERRIBLE outbrake. I took oratane instead of roaccutane. My dosage was like 40 mg a day for 6 months. I had conjunctivitis and I had to suspend it for a weeks. Every day my nose was bleeding. My father and my family told me to stop taking it because my acne was getting worse, but I ignored them and finished the 6 months treatment. It was a wise decision. The results were amazing.
Acne returned years later, of course a milder version. This time I went with a different dermatologist that thinks lower and larger is better. Took it for the second time with a low dosage, about 30 mg. Again my face was nice, maybe not as the first time (because i had a little greasy face), but completely clear, Sideeffects were minimal.
At 25, mild acne returned. Nothing to do with swollen buds I had the first time. With the same derma of the second cycle, this third cycle was with a really low dosage. a pair of months with 30, then 20, then 10 mg. This time the side effects were minimal. Only dry lips without breakout. No oily face.
The only thing I'm not happy with, is that I take my last pill today, and don't want to lose this beautiful results. I would take it forever if I could, but well.. this is a drug that which unfortunately can not be used in that way.
I have to clarify that I don't have hormonal...

Although my acne is very far from the one I suffered in adolescence, it's recidivist. I care a lot my diet and avoid milk, since it has been discovered that it influences the severity of acne. I hope not to see acne in my face again.
I hope my review will be helpful
Since my last pill, I can say that I am free from...

I have asked many doctors several times if it was not likely that I had a hormonal problem. All of them tell me it's not too probable because i'm very skinny, and don't have obvious masculine features, In fact my question seems funny or exaggerated. That's why my dermatologist told me to do pelvic ultrasound, to rid of doubts, it seems that everything is normal, except that one of my ovaries is bigger than the other, one has a volume of 10.5 cc, in the limit of "normal", but what "normal" is supossed to be is less than 10cc. Both ovaries have less than 8 follicles, so not limits exceded. However, I'll know if everything is fine with me until I show the estudies to the specialist.
