I've had moderate acne for quite a few years now (probably around 4 years now) and i'm getting really tired of it. I've been to two dermatologists and both of them instantly prescribed me roaccutane. Not even any questions about how I feel about it or anything..
I am currently battling a lot of anxiety and some depression (some due to acne, some due to other things) and I've read the side-effects about suicide thoughts among other things with this medication.. and I am really scared about it.. but on the other hand, just the thought of not having a shiny forehead full of oil and red cheeks full of acne is so nice right now.
My other concern with roaccutane is the side-effects with dry skin. My skin is already very dry and i can't seem to find a moisturizer that fits my skin (tried find one with many threads on this forum).. which means my skin will be even more dry. I dont know if my skin will be able to recover from that, and even if roaccutane works, I would have yet another problem..
What do you guys think? Do I take the risks?
