Accutane as a teenager?

Recommended Posts

Hi, i am concerned as i have heard stories that accutane should not be used by people still in growth. I am 17 now, and even though my derm has prescribed accutane for my moderate acne, i was told by a regular doctor that it should NOT be taken by teenagers and people who are still no fully developed. Reading the medications precautions, i haven't found anything on the issue of age, so can someone plz help with some advice??

Thank you.
