Why Is This Drug Still Legal?!

Simple, yet absolutely mind-boggling: Why is accutane still prescribed? As of the latest and most relevant information i can obtain, The FDA has received reports of 66 suicides and 1,373 psychiatric adverse events other than suicide related to Accutane.(1)This information is sadly from the year 2000. This is also only the number of events that have been reported directly to the FDA. The actual number of either or could be astounding as is the amount of cases that go un-reported to the F

How Was Your Accutane Experience?

Come vote! Also comment. Accutane is one of the most controversial drugs on the market, well in US now Claravis amnesteem etc.. Anyways, it seems that through reading many forums, that many people go on to develop autoimmune like disorders or serious body malfunctions after Accutane. Not to mention the "normal" side effects like dry skin that persist well beyond the last treatment date. I'm trying to gather a poll to see just how "coincidental" all these things after accutane are. It doesnt matt

Don't Stress!

I can't stress this enough.. If you've experienced side effects from accutane do not stress. I believe it makes them worse and there's a chance you might not be able to get out of a funk as is common with so many post tane users. I. E depression. It's a lot easier said than done, but you have to avoid it. I went through a breakup and therefore went through extreme emotional stress. I'm turn this caused me to experience telogen effluvium on top of my already thinned hair from accutane

Skincare Vs. Quality Of Life

Are you serious?! Have you read the side affects associated with Accutane... DON'T DO IT. There is so many things effed up about what this drug can do to you. Why take the chance? So you can have clear skin? There are many other options. Especially if you don't have SEVERE ACNE. And really look at yourself to determine if you have severe acne. I know that most, having acne, are already extremely self conscious about themselves and think it is the worst acne ever. Google severe cystic acne

What If I Never Took Accutane

I would do ANYTHING to have never taken accutane. At about 20 I feel like I've wrecked my life. My skins thin and fragile and wrinkling. My shoulders shot (tendinitis). My hair thinned bad. It's embarrassing. It destroyed the quality of my life. I don't know if I wanna wait to see wha lies ahead sometimes. I just constantly think of going back in time and having never taken it. Literally runs through my mind every single day...

Water Fast?

Lately I've been reading of all the great benefits (possibilities) of water fasting. I would like to do it to detoxify my body and hopefully "cure" itself. Has anyone tried this and what were your results? Also any opinions or advice welcome

Accutane And Depression

This is a touchy subject, because i know that there are many of you out there that have depression directly related to accutane. I think my feeling of constant "shitty-ness" and worthlessness comes from indirect side effects of accutane. I also feel that accutane, whatever it does do to the mind and body, makes it harder to come out of a chronic stress/ depression situation. Later last year i went through a very stressful moment in my life where i went days without eating and i had to be moving

Accutane Hairloss

Ahh the joy and happiness that this drug has brought to my life is endless (Laying on the sarcasm as thick as butter used for a fat mans dinner roll). Where to begin.. First of all, i used to have a thick, thick head of hair that i would treat like a girl. I put the concoction of mayonnaise and eggs and such in there a couple times to make it soft and shimmery, (make fun of me, whatever haha) i would only shampoo it every other day to maintain oils, and being a guy it was obviously

Accutane Mechanism Of Action

Although I believe that people are getting closer, I dont think that anyone really knows exactly what accutane does to the body and how it does it. There is so much information out there. How do you know what to believe, if anything? Here are some links to possible mechanisms of action related to accutane and how it works, i guess you can determine for yourself what you believe to be possible/true etc..

Accutane For Scarring?

When i went to back to my dermatologist to ask why I had been prescribed accutane in the first place, he told me for scarring. I said " I thought it was supposed to be a last resort treatment?" he replied " Haha, not at all." Through everything Ive ever known and learned, I have never once heard of accutane being prescribed for mild acne and scarring. If anything i know that accutane slows the healing process and therefore can lead to more scarring during and after the treatment, but can possib

Life After Accutane

I was 17 years old, playing sports, working out, eating right. I was of optimum health and I was loving life. I had a thick, thick head of bushy hair that ironically enough i wished was thinner. I now realize that i just didnt know how to care for it, and i wished it was easier to tame. At the time i had a girlfriend who had taken accutane and had pretty good results, after the dryness etc( she ended up having a relapse).. She had cystic acne that wouldnt respond to other treatments. That said,
