In Topic: My Accutane Journey

well I have tried everything nothing worked out so the only thing left is Accutane but ya my side effects are not that bad actually . I am only in 3 months. so hopefully that will be it . Thanks smile.png

 

You mentioned your acne only mild-moderate, i only have a few spots with very oily skin and some fading red marks on my cheeks. Do you think it is worth taking accutane? My derm mentioned that he would put me on it but i had some reservations about the side effects and if my acne was bad enough to take it. 

You should definitely try other means before this such as

 

retinoids/BP/topical antibiotics

 

diet changes

 

 

Accutane can have permanent side effects and it is not a guarantee

I have had acne for 5 years and tried quite a few things e.g. Proactive, BP, salycilic acid, AHA, before going to a derm and was on 5 months of Minomycin + Eyracne + Differin which has not helped to much so the next step was accutane which the derm suggested as a first option when i first went to him. 

 

I think the benefits will out weigh the risks of taking accutane. I am not sure but i am hopeful that since i am quite healthy that the side effects will be mild but i do not know if the side effects discriminate against people of different levels of health.
