I didn't really care to read the last couple of pages but are you actually blaming Accutane for gum receding now? Also, trying to get Accutane banned is probably not the best action route. Good luck though buddy lol
I've determined this thread has turned into an all encompassing smorgasborg of hypochondriasis with accutane as the sole scapegoat for all of life's problems.
Normally, I wouldn't have a problem with people doing what they do, but when people start preaching how accutane is the devil and should be banned... Well I have a huge problem with that. After 9 years taking accutane, I can safely say that most of these "problems" are not in any way related to a drug they took for four months. These guys and gals should really seek some counseling. Breast lactations to treat post-accutane "problems"?!!? Come on now....
I completely agree. While I understand some have suffered real side effects due to the drug, we do experience the same over exaggerating people. Many who preach about how bad Accutane was, come back a year later and say they are completely fine. I took Accutane for at least 7 months (full dosage) and that was over a year ago. Accutane has helped me in many ways as well as others and therefore stating that Accutane should be banned is bogus. Some of you spend way to much on this website and google searching for a reason why everything is falling apart because of this drug.
Accutane was your choice.
Trust me kids if you were affected any of the same DIRECT effects of accutane you would have the same opinion.
Which you haven been.
You were one of the lucky ones.
But if a drug ruins a small amout of people's lives but makes more people feel good is it worth it?
It's worth it to you right? Cuz you took it and you're fine. You. YOU.
There are other people in the world.
People who are swayed, people who are guided, recommended and suggested.
People who dont know everything. People who are young and conditioned to believe what a doctor says.
So you should maybe stop being so self centered for a second and try and put yourself in someone elses shoes.
