Accutane is a prescription oral medication used to treat severe acne. The drug is a form of vitamin A, which reduces the amount of oil released by the skin. While Accutane has delivered amazing results for some, it's also been linked to an increased risk of depression and may cause severe, life-threatening birth defects. The manufacturer no longer produces Accutane, though generic versions of the drug still exist. Outside the U.S. it is marketed as Roaccutane.

Accutane Journey!

I did Accutane in high school, didn't have bad acne. I did it because I didn't want to ever have to deal with it!

Hi guys, I've been suffering from acne for approx. 10 years. I was put on Epiduo in 2009 to no avail - to be honest I wasn't happy with my treatment - maybe it was my attitude at the time as I believe diet is a factor.

Accutane

I've been on accutane for 9 days now, and feel that documenting my progress will be helpful.

I also feel minor joint... READ MORE
