After years of suffering, I finally went on accutane from August 2013-January 2014. I can't say it was the nicest of experiences with the side effects but it was completely worth it in the end. My skin was perfect from January up until a few weeks ago when it's got really bad again, really fast.
I have an appointment to see a Doctor in a week and a half to hopefully refer me to a dermatologist so I can get a second course. Do people find that a second course tends to really get rid of it for good? Also, for people who did take a second course, did you find side effects not to be as bad? The thing I'm really worried about is the initial breakout - I had a minor-moderate one last time around and I'm scared it'll be happen again.
It's extremely depressing to be a 23 year old guy who is still battling acne, particularly after I had a run of 10 months of being completely clear!
