I was going to get Accutane today...but chickened out..help.

Recommended Posts

Ok...My derm has given me around 6 different antiobiotics since July. I am currently on a very strong one. I use Tazorac every other day and Exzit(haha clever...assholes)the next. He said he was going to put me on accutane today, just read over the packet. Well...I got pretty scared(even the doctor said it was scary, but it wasnt high of a chance and I will look good afterwards). And said no, im not ready. What Im wondering is, are the chances of these horrible side effects high? I really am afraid of these, and will it mess with genes and have bad future effects on me? Please answer my questions with both sides, unlike that one guy who says nothing but negative things. Thanks.

I'm 33 man now and took accutane about 8 years ago and everything is fine. My 7 year old is the smartest kid in the class! Don't worry. The blood tests will uncover any dangerous reactions you may have to the drug and you will be taken off it. Personally the only side effects I had were the usual dry lips and nose, oh and I forgot clear skin years afterwards!
