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 ›

So after struggling with moderate to severe acne since I was 13, my doctor finally decided to put me on accutane. I have tried everything. EVERYTHING. Nothing has ever worked. My self esteem is basically non-existent. I refuse to leave the house without makeup on (I haven't gone out without... READ MORE

I had literally given up and decided that I would go ahead and do Accutane (although I didn't want to) because no doctor or products (I tried them ALL) had helped the adult acne I was experiencing for more than 10 years. The worst part was that I had it on my chest, back and shoulders as well. I... READ MORE

I had extremely clear skin until going off to college and then the cystic acne started- anywhere from 1-10 around my chin area at any given time. My self esteem plummeted, didn't want to go to class, avoided people and functions, grades suffered. It was a complete 180 degree downward turn since... READ MORE

I am just staring Zenatane 40mgs, once per day. I have persistent acne that scars, and every topical and antibiotic I have been on has not helped. I have been dealing with acne since I was 15. I have been seeing a dermatologist and he recommended I start accutane. He said I would be a great... READ MORE

I've been dealing with acne issues since my college days. It's most recently gotten worse than ever before. I have been on every treatment out there. I had begun blue light therapy with the help of a handheld and had about a week of clearing and my acne is back with a vengeance. I'm very tired... READ MORE

I suffered from acne since I was 11 and when I got into the throes of puberty at 14 my acne became cystic. My face was constantly swollen and painful. My chest, neck, and back were also covered in acne. When I was 15 a boy in one of my classes took a picture of my back (without my consent) and... READ MORE

I battled cystic acne for about 15 yrs. Worked with a dermatologist 2 yrs before trying isotretinoin . I tried everything under the sun nothing seemed to help. I took a leap of faith and happy I did so. It was rough I completed a five month course. Two methods of birth control was needed a... READ MORE

My struggle with acne started in my early 20's then became much worse as I got older. I have tried restricting my diet, taking different vitamins and supplements, as well as antibiotics and topical treatment. Each worked a little bit but not for long. I was hesitant to go on Accutane because of... READ MORE

I have began taking 10mg Accutane capsules and my skin is breaking out horribly. I wake up to new zits, whiteheads or small pimples that turn into massive zits the very next day. My doctor says he is giving me a low dose because he doesn't want me to "flare up" but I would rather get it over... READ MORE

I have struggled with Acne for 5 years now. Nothing has been working for me. I have tried everything from systemic antibiotics to topical ointments, etc. I've tried getting treated by estheticians, facials, microdermabraision, chemical peels, diet changes, etc. I saw my dermatologist today, I...

I have had acne for a few years, mild in nature, then suddenly in 2015 it got severe. Doctors said I had cystic/nodular acne. I tried most if not all the different OTC remedies, and had prescription antibiotics but my face just got worst. My forehead, upper lips and cheeks were a mess. I asked... READ MORE

So I took accutane for the first time about 2 years ago on my own (got it out of the states) and I had amazing results. Unfortunately they didn't last for too long because I didn't take a high enough dosage, so now I'm on round 2! So far it really sucks but I'm trying to be strong. I'm currently... READ MORE

So after numerous visits to the derm (and countless antibiotics and topical to go along with it) I switched derms and was immediately put on accutane. She diagnosed me with comedonal acne that doesn't respond to anything else. I had a partial hysterectomy years ago so I was able to start... READ MORE

Just recently started my accutane dose! I'm an 18 year old female and I've been fighting with some pretty bad acne since middle school! I've only been on accutane for a full week 40mg a day but the dryness is real!! I've noticed a few more breakouts than I normally get but I suppose that's... READ MORE

I've struggled with acne for a while. By a while I mean almost ten years. I'm sure many of you reading this are on a similar journey. When I was about 15 I developed severe cystic acne, the kind that makeup does not hide. I was on numerous different types of medications: topicals, antibiotics,... READ MORE

Hi Everyone, My name is Charlie, I'm 28 years old and have been struggling with acne since I was 14.

Acne......has ruined most of my adolescent life and much of my teens and adult life as well. I have had acne as long as I can remember.....grade 5 being as far back as I can recall. I was taunted and teased because of it, sometimes even followed home from school and beat up. Now it's me who... READ MORE

I have had acne since I was a teenager. I am now 31 and still continue to suffer from acne, but mainly I am irritated with the oil and the old scars. I do my makeup in the morning around 7 and by 12 all of the makeup has slid off my face due to excessive oil production, I am blotting the oil... READ MORE

Ive been suffering from acne ever since I was 11, but around 2 years ago it worsened to a point in which I wouldn't even consider leaving the house without layers of foundation. Taking Accutane was my last option, since i was hesitant about the side effects and how it could affect my body but I... READ MORE
