Recommended Posts

ok simple question..

how effective is accutane at treating acne that is mostly black heads and white heads??

i guess my main question would be - how effective is it at geting to work with acne vulgaris?

thats wot i got, alot of white heads that leave disgusting ugly big red marks.. and acne bacteria under the skin also makin it red

acne vulgaris in other words

and my docs prescribed me accutane - 20mg a day since NOTHING else has worked

How heavy are you? 20 mg a day is a fairly small dose for the acne that you describe. Given the right dosage, Accutane will clear those blackheads & whiteheads up within the course of treatment.

man accutane is mostly for curing big red cysts..

it does help with white heads, and black heads. But mostly for cysts, in fact you will prolly notice more white heads, and black heads appear over the course of the treatment until your body adjusts to it.
