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'm a 42 year old mom who developed what I have learned to be hormonal acne. I never had a problem with acne growing up. However, around age 35, I started getting acne. Once I figured out that it wasn't going away, I thought I must be allergic to something. I tried changing skin care products,... READ MORE

These photos had me at one of my lowest points of my life and I'm currently almost four months in and already have seen drastic changes even with still being on treatment.

I was seen by my dermatologist at the end of March and he prescribed accutane for my acne. However, being a female, I was required to have to negative pregnancy tests before I could start, which set me back about a month-extremely frustrating! But I understand why it had to be done. Anyway, I... READ MORE

I always had clear skin until about 33 my skin starting flaring up. Nothing a little benzaclin could not fix! NOT! My face exploded! I must have been in denial because I waited & suffer too long before going to the doc. I guess I thought it would just go away. Instead it just kept coming... READ MORE

I've always had minor acne and breakouts since about 6th grade but over the counter benzoil peroxide topical face washes have always kept it under control. Then, in the September of 2015 (my sophomore year of college) I tried a new product (Seacret) that a friend recommended to me. I used it for... READ MORE

So I was on accutane for 6 months, my face was really bad when I started in October, I got some really big pimples in the beginning and saw some acne all the way through month 5, the last month it basically all cleared up.

I'll make this review as short as possible. All through middle school and high school I was never conscious of my skin. I've never had acne until I turned 20, call it hormonal. I am 22 years old now. I tried over the counter washes, nothing worked. Then I started reading about Accutane... READ MORE
