Well, I am very sorry to hear you got type 1 and I hope you are coping with it well. I knew what I could get(still might) after taking accutane....it can be MS, IBS, Crohn's you name it... I guess I can still lose all my hair etc.... But, I made an informed decision to take accutane. Even if I do get another problem I would not regret taking it. You might wonder why and I can tell you- I did not want to live with what I had on my face, head and back. I considered and attempted suicide because I have been spat on the streets by adults and abused verbally by teenagers for the most of my life.... We are not talking acne that is moderate we are talking acne that is severe and never healing(maybe, partially due to diabetes). So, I thought if I can have even 6 months of clear skin in the whole of my life I would still take it....just to know for 6 months what it feels to have clear skin. I do not care if it comes back but I do enjoy every day from the time my acne cleared and I am happy now. Whatever the price I have to pay, I am ready for it, my life was never easy and I risked it, and it is still a risk, but I live the most wonderful days of my life at the moment. I knew what it can do to me and I still took it. There would be no surprises and disappointment because I believe I can win. I know what it is to be in coma several times so I have nothing to lose...and maybe a world to gain. For my it was worth it.
What evidence is that?? I have evidence to prove it was a safe cure for my horrible acne. I am type 1 diabetic and risked it and it was worth it at the end! You will be biased and wrong to tell people it is poison. If you do not let the other side speak on this thread then truth will never find its way here....it will be all biased lies.
everyone on accutane is aware of what they are taking. we are essentially poisoning ourselves on purpose to cure our acne. the common side effects are short term, and last a little over the length of the course. the much rarer, more serious side effects, or just that... much rarer.
we are all taking risks taking this drug in the hope of giving ourselves a better quality of life. nobody takes the decision lightly, and scaremongering and uneducated fact slinging is insulting to everyone who is going through, or has gone through their treatment. nobody takes the decision to go accutane lightly, and for most, there is no other choice.
people can copy and paste facts from uncited websites and think they are discovering something that 30 years of proffessional research into the drug cannot find if they want, but keep it to yourselves until your speculative theories are factual.
You have no right to tell anybody that they need more substantial evidence to support the fact that accutane is dangerous and shouldn't be prescribed. All my evidence is from experience. All the others that I have managed to talk to have shared nothing positive about accutane. If you don't agree with this thread then you don't have to post. Please don't troll this thread when it was created out of good intentions to help people.
Lucky for you! Since you already had type 1 diabetes there wasn't much to risk in that aspect! Accutane caused my Type 1 and No it is not Normal to develop suddenly at 35....
Anyways, It's the same old thing...Thoose who are new to Accutane or had a good experince will praise, thoose damaged will not, then there is thoose who praise it and get damaged and have a change of heart....Then there are thoose that say take the adivice of your derm, but if you get f**cked up then you should of listened to your own body blah blah blah...etc..... Point is it's dangerous drug Roche states that themselves and it is missued by derms all the time. It Russian Roulette!
