While Accutane does work as promised, the side effects are what you need to evaluate when deciding if it is the right prescription for you. I decided to use Accutane as a "last resort" because I found no creams, ointments, or pills to help over many years.
The Accutane cleared my acne but I experienced high levels of body aches and pains. Not only did the medicine dry out my face, it reduced the lubrication in my joints and I had to deal with the effects in my knees, hips, and back. After 2 years my acne has returned, and I am still dealing with the full body consequences. This is why I recommend evaluating whether this the right decision for YOU in the long run.

Although no longer at the Clinic, Dr. J was a valuable provider for the time I spent working on my acne with him.
