Accutane is a prescription oral medication used to treat severe acne. A form of Vitamin A, the drug reduces the amount of oil released by the skin. Know before you go: it's been linked to an increased risk of depression and can cause severe, life-threatening birth defects. Roche Pharmaceuticals officially stopped producing Accutane in 2009, though generic versions still exist. LEARN MORE ›

I thought it would be a good idea to keep a journal of events that occur while taking this drug. I keep googling if what I experience is the same as others, so maybe this will help others.

I never had acne as a teenager; however, at 20 yrs old I started getting really bad acne. I was having really bad breakouts. I never went to the dermatologist because I thought I couldn't afford it. At a while I decided to set an appointment and go with it. My first month dose my acne got worse,... READ MORE

I have been reading nonstop reviews for the past couple months about isotretinoin (Accutane), so I wanted to give back so that someone similar to me might benefit from my posts. I am a 35 year old female who has a long history with zits. In middle school and high school I used Retin-A 0.25%, and... READ MORE

I was reluctant to try accutane for a few years due to the side effects but my acne has got so severe that it has been affecting my life for some time now; I feel terrible in my own skin, I feel as though I am always hiding my face and hoping that people will not look at me. I do not see my... READ MORE

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! When I was 19-20, I had a HORRIBLE reaction to a contraceptive pill and broke out with painful cystic acne. My breakouts have gotten a lot better. I was prescribed Doxycycline, then... READ MORE
