What are the chances

Recommended Posts

1. What are chances that it won't do anything at all? Just won't work at all, period.

2. Chances it will come back after you're done with the course.

3. Chances you'll have to stop taking it due to complications.

No exact numbers needed, just opinions are fine!

1) Very, very low (<5 percent)

2) About 10-20 percent. Highly dependant on dosage relative to body weight.

3) Low, but this is subjective. A major side effect to one person is just a minor nuisance to another.

1) Very low, it is very unlikely it won't work throughout the course. So far I haven't heard of anyone who is resistant to accutane.

2) Probably 60/40. 60% it won't come back and 40% it will. I'm taking it from the pamphlet itself, but I heard that the milder the acne, the less likely it will come back. And also if you do 2nd or 3rd courses, the percentage of it coming back will be lesser.

3)This depends on your family's medical history and your current situation. If you are a healthy individual, it is very unlikely that you will have complications. I will say pretty low also.
