Hello! I'm sorry my response took... So long. Geeze.
Apparently, MANY people who take Accutane, especially females, end up needing multiple treatments (usually 2). If you think the benefits outweigh the risks, go ahead and go for it!
My skin has been pretty chilled out except for around my period. The week of my period and about four days following it likes to break out. I've started taking 10,000 IU of vitamin A a day about three weeks ago and I noticed that when I break out it's smaller, less red, comes to a head quickly, and my skin isn't nearly as oily. I would much rather do this than go on Accutane again, simply because I'm still feeling some of the effects of Accutane. Going on Accutane was TOTALLY worth it though. It cleared my skin, boosted my confidence, and it even was a learning experience for me.
I'm in school for biology education. I'm thinking about going to medical school. I'd love to be a dermatologist.
