hey,

yes, accutane rocks. it seriously gave me my life back. i had moderate PERSISTANT acne and it got rid of it for over 5 years with accutane. in fact, i'm almost POSITIVE my face would still be completely clear if i didn't just go through pregnancy and childbirth. my hormones are so out of whack and that is the reason my face is breaking out again. but, accutane is the only thing that has ever worked for me and i've tried it all: retin a, retin a micro, minocycline, minocycline with spironolactone, tetracycline and differin gel and i think i'm even forgetting one or two. i have a derm appointment tomorrow and hope that he gives me a prescription for a second course of accutane.

it does have (DRY) side effects, but i love it. and every single side effect that i encountered was WELL worth it to me.

For me is great. It cleared my cystic acne, but its only been six months. I get zero breakouts.

However my course was tough, horrible breakouts, but I would do it again if I had to.
