I am a 14 year old boy who has been suffering from acne since the age of 11.

At first, it was a few pimples here and there. Now, it's full blown cystic acne. My doctor finally prescribed me Isotretinoin. Therefore, I am on Day 2 of Accutane. I plan on completing my course, but I am worried about what will happen to me after I finish it. I hear about many long-term effects that men have to deal with (ED, Low Libido, Etc) and I want to know if there is a way around it.

Anyone else been off accutane for we while? And know what might happen to me and how to fix it?

I don't want to get rid of my problem (acne) and then have new ones happen (depression, ED, etc)

Accutane side effects are a roll of the die.  You may get it, you may not, it just depends on how your body responds.  14 is really young to be taking it so i assume your acne is severe.  If you contnue with treatment, eat right, exercise and treat your body like a temple.
