Was concerned about mild acne as I was in my early 20s. Was prescribed Accutane by a rogue dermatologist who was out to make a quick buck. The Accutane didn't clear my skin up but it did destroy its ability to heal. over 10 years later my face is a complete mess, I look disfigured with scars. I knew more or less straight away what happened. After the course of Accutane any spots appeared indented after healing. This has continued and hasnt stopped. It led to a bout of depressed and thoughts of suicide. Luckily I hung in there. This woman was only interested in money.

Welcome to the community, thank you for sharing our experience with Accutane. I am sorry to hear that you had such terrible side effects. If you don't mind me asking, what kind of scars are left, do you mean from the acne?
