Want to start accutane

Recommended Posts

So I had moderate acne until the derm put me on minocycline and differin. Now my acne is just mild/moderate, and I want to get rid of it all. I don't want to take minocycline because I heard of bad side effects like autoimmune disease. Plus, when I take this med I get dizzy and I lose focus on everything. He's had me on this for a few months but It's not helping anymore than what it's already done. I asked him about accutane, and if I could take it and he said my acne has slightly gotten better from my meds and he wants to keep me on them for another 3 months, and accutane should only be used for cases when your unresponsive to antibiotics. I rescheduled another appointment with him because I forgot to tell him about the side effects I've been getting from minocycline, and that I just want to take accutane to get rid of most of it forever. Anyone know what I can do because I just want it all to end.
