I think like 90% of the people who go on accutane have good results. but the side effects are equivolent to the devil. the first few months, Most peoples acne becomes worse than it ever was before. Dry skin, lips are also very common. It is one hellish trip, but I thought it was worth it, so I am on it again.

It did a good job for me in preventing new acne from forming both when I was taking it and a couple months after I finished the treatment. It did little for my red marks, which is mainly what I have. However, a couple months after I finished the treatment I started forming new acne but did little to stop or prevent it, ergo, a year later I'm now fighting it with this regimen.

Be sure to get lots of moisturizer and chap stick. Your skin and your lips will dry out very bad and pretty quickly. Don't wait until they are drying out to apply the moisturizers, start applying them now. My nose also dried out which resulted in a bloody nose for the first 3 weeks or so. Good luck with the treatment and hopefully it does all you want it to.
