Yea, you mentioned the experience with said dose, and that is what I am doing. To be quite honest most people don't know the risks. People just hear about IB's, dry lips, and possible thinning of hair. That is the LEAST of your worries. I use to hate to hear the horror stories as well because it was my life saver in many ways. It wasn't until I started feeing the way I do did I look around for the " horror stories". If I had read them beforehand, I probably never would of taken it. When it comes to Accutane and most prescription medicine, ignorance is bliss; please don't be that naive, do your research before you commit.
Fair enough, but please don't assume ignorance of people just because they are taking the medication. I can assure you that I, as well as many others, have done countless hours of research on Accutane, specifically on ultra low-dosing, and have read the warnings and opposition. Often, it is safe to assume that if someone is even taking the time to post on an acne related website in regard to Accutane, they have probably done research elsewhere as well.
Simply put, there are far more people who have taken, and are currently taking, ultra low-dose Accutane with no side effects than otherwise. For many, this is enough to justify taking the medication.
If the medicine can provide someone with happiness and improve their quality of life, that benefit often outweighs the possible risks.
