So I'm new to this but basically I am due to start roaccutane tomorrow for 4 months. My sister completed her course of roaccutane about two years ago and is completely fine and hasn't relapsed. However, after watching a lot of youtube videos and reading posts on here I still have absolutely no idea if roaccutane is for me or not, I can cope with the dryness but the potential long term side effects of this drug really really make me reconsider if its worth it or not.
A bit about me and my acne:
Well I'm 18 and have suffered from acne since I was about 15. My acne at the moment is actually the best its been since I first began getting acne but I have so many scars from where it was previously very bad. I've tried all the topicals out there, I've been on the pill for a year but nothings worked. I haven't tried antibiotics only because as soon as you stop it, the acne comes back and I don't want to be on antibiotics long term.
Has anyone done roaccutane and can give me an honest opinion on what its like? Also does anyone know what the long term side effects of this drug are?
