Quick question about accutane

Hi, I'm Canadian, and Ive never tried pills (or cream from a doctor) for acne.

Just a few questions..

1) Is accutane available in Canada?

2) Can my family doctor prescribe it to me?

3) Will the drug plan cover it? My family has a GREAT drug plan, ive never seen nothing not paid for.

4) Is there anything better?

5) What exactly does it do?

I also see people saying accutane is only for really serious cases.. My acne is not that bad, just a few spots then bad on my left part of chin, problem is it never goes away, I will clear an area, then somewhere else goes bad.

Thanks alot!

I now see theres a specific forum for accutane, im sorry! Ill keep this here untill a mod wants to move it, sorry again!

Keep in mind it's not something to consider lightly; though, most people do not regret taking it.

Just be sure you're informed before you decide to take such a step!
