  1. NiftyStranger added a post in a topic Accutane   

    Don't do it! I took one five month course of Accutane and wish I had never taken it! It cleared me up for a couple of years, but my acne came back. Luckily my derm refused to prescribe a second dose, saying if it didn't work the first time it won't work the second time. I took Accutane 17 years ago - and my skin is much more sensitive and fragile than before I took it. I've also had some health-related problems that I suspect were induced by Accutane. My solution to find clear skin has been through diet and exercise.

    Accutane impairs healing and makes skin more prone to scarring. My skin never scarred prior to Accutane, but I have shallow scars left after Accutane - and my skin scars easily now.
