#3398254 Starting Roaccutane Soon - But What If I Have Been Doing Skin Care Wrong All...

Posted by Peck on 02 December 2013 - 06:01 AM

If you've had acne for 23 years I imagine you want nothing more than to get rid of it. You have a shot with Roaccutane, I would urge you to give it a go. Taking Roaccutane is a bit of a blind decision insofar as the effects can sometimes be a little unpredictable. Having second thoughts is understandable, everybody does. But it is your best shot. And if you find reasons not to take it now, how can you be sure that the same won't happen again in the future? A bit of courage goes a long way :)

Best of luck :)

#3376831 Which Dosage Is More Effective?

In theory, in terms of acne clearance, there should be no difference whatsoever.

However, the longer less-intensive treatment is a safer option if the issue of side-effects is a worry to you. I'm not a doctor (unsurprisingly) but there is no objectively 'better' option of the two. Which one you do would depend on a variety of factors such as your weight, acne severity and personal willingness to endure the worst of the 'likely' side-effects (i.e. intense dryness, aches, facial redness etc).
