Should I Use Accutane

Recommended Posts

Hello Guys,

Currently using Tazorac and my skin is clearing really slowly, but new acne comes up.

I'm thinking about going on Accutane, but first I have some questions regarding it.

I'm 15 years old and is it dangerous for me to use Accutane and is it ok ?

I have read the side effects, but I would like to know if it's ok to use it at so early age.

I'm twenty and feel as if I have tried everything... I have gone through TONS of ups and downs. I feel like it just keeps coming back...and have thought of using ACCUTANE as well and am considering it now....so, IDK. I'm making the decision this month so would like some views on it as well?

I can't decide either if I should use Accutane at that young age.

I heard that Accutane can stop your growth at an age younger than 18.

But Accutane still has some serious side effects that might effect your body.

Acne is like a shield, we need to fight it as a human body being in the world.

Stunted growth is a rare side effect, so I wouldn't worry *too* much about that. If you can stand going through the next few years with some acne, then I wouldn't go for Accutane. If, however, you want to clear up now and/or avoid future red marks/scarring, then Accutane might be a good choice. Good luck. =]

Make sure you have exhausted EVERYTHING else first. Even then, I would only use it for the most severe cases but I regret taking accutane so damn much. It's left me with far more problems than acne.

It's really hard to decide if I should use Accutane or not.

I'm currently on Tazorac and it's clearing pretty good, but takes lots of time.

I have been on Tazorac for about 5 months and it cleared my acne almost completely.

I still see some new breakouts, but the most thing I can see are the red marks left over.

So, now I'm thinking about Accutane, because I heard that many people got success with it.
