Intro -



Hi everyone, I have decided to log my experience on Accutane not only for myself but for others considering taking it in the future. I have read many things about Accutane (both good and bad) but have decided to give it a try because nothing, and i mean nothing has worked for me in the past. I have tried anything from gels to creams to antibiotics and nothing has made a difference. At this point I am 24 and tired of dealing with the constant embarrassment of pimples, I want it gone for good and this is the last resort so here it goes! :)

A brief background about myself:

I am a 24 year old female. Wouldn't necessarily say I have horrible acne, but I constantly get new pimples no matter what I use to prevent or limit new breakouts. I have suffered cystic acne for as long as I can remember and have used everything a doctor can recommend as well as any acne skin care line out on the market. Finally I went to the derm and he recommended Accutane. He put me on 80 mg once a day which he recommended based on my height and weight. At first I was skeptical but I am willing to do anything at this point to clear up my skin. Really hoping this is the final answer!
