roaccutane - miracle cure?!!Please tell me what youve heard

Hey have u guys heard of roaccutane? its completely cleared my skin which was depressingly bad. I was made aware of all the side effects but only really experienced one which was dry lips. However, the press have shown so much negative coverage, why is this?? The treatment is hugely expensive so most wait to get it supplied free on the NHS, is the government losing money on what seems to work so well for so many?? Please Help! thanks Rick

I think lally191 is just combining the drug company name with the drug's brand name. Accutane is the drug and the company which manufactures it is Roche. Isotretinoin is the generic name.

Accutane, roaccutane and roaccutan are all the same thing. The drug is just sold under slightly different names in different countries (accutane in US, roaccutane in UK etc..)
