Life after Accutane



Why Is This Drug Still Legal?!

Posted by What1f, 30 January 2014 · 207 views

Simple, yet absolutely mind-boggling: Why is accutane still prescribed?   
   
As of the latest and most relevant information i can obtain, The FDA has received reports of 66 suicides and  
1,373 psychiatric adverse events other than suicide related to Accutane.(1)This information is sadly from the year 2000. This is also only the number of...

Posted by What1f, 14 September 2013 · 214 views

Come vote! Also comment. Accutane is one of the most controversial drugs on the market, well in US now Claravis amnesteem etc.. Anyways, it seems that through reading many forums, that many people go on to develop autoimmune like disorders or serious body malfunctions after Accutane. Not to mention the "normal" side effects like dry skin that persist well...

I can't stress this enough.. If you've experienced side effects from accutane do not stress. I believe it makes them worse and there's a chance you might not be able to get out of a funk as is common with so many post tane users. I. E depression. It's a lot easier said than done, but you have to avoid it. I went through a breakup and therefore went throug...

What If I Never Took Accutane

Posted by What1f, 18 March 2013 · 447 views

I would do ANYTHING to have never taken accutane. At about 20 I feel like I've wrecked my life. My skins thin and fragile and wrinkling. My shoulders shot (tendinitis). My hair thinned bad. It's embarrassing. It destroyed the quality of my life. I don't know if I wanna wait to see wha lies ahead sometimes. I just constantly think of going back in time and...

Lately I've been reading of all the great benefits (possibilities) of water fasting. I would like to do it to detoxify my body and hopefully "cure" itself. Has anyone tried this and what were your results? Also any opinions or advice welcome


Accutane And Depression

Posted by What1f, 04 March 2013 · 1,416 views

This is a touchy subject, because i know that there are many of you out there that have depression directly related to accutane. I think my feeling of constant "shitty-ness" and worthlessness comes from indirect side effects of accutane. I also feel that accutane, whatever it does do to the mind and body, makes it harder to come out of a chronic stress/ d...

Although I believe that people are getting closer, I dont think that anyone really knows exactly what accutane does to the body and how it does it. There is so much information out there. How do you know what to believe, if anything? Here are some links to possible mechanisms of action related to accutane and how it works, i guess you can determine for yo...


Accutane For Scarring?

Posted by What1f, 04 March 2013 · 461 views

When i went to back to my dermatologist to ask why I had been prescribed accutane in the first place, he told me for scarring. I said " I thought it was supposed to be a last resort treatment?" he replied " Haha, not at all."  Through everything Ive ever known and learned, I have never once heard of accutane being prescribed for mild acne and scarrin...
