Are you sure your ready for Accutane? There are a lot of side effects in both short and long runs.

I've once asked a dermatologist whether or not i should start Accutane (Before Acne.org)

He told me to go get my body organs tested to see if its healthy or not. So i didn't feel like doing all this. Eventually i searched for better ways to get clear and found this site.

But hey, if you already tried Everything than go for it. Just make sure you think about it.

Accutane is generally a safe drug to use. With proper guidance and routine check-ups, you will not be harmed in any way. Accutane is the only 100% cure for acne. Good luck, Ciudad.

If its bad enough im sure your derm will let you go for it, if not you could always try another derm.. but i say go for it, i would be willing to sacrifice some things in order to have perfect skin by taking a pill

I'm actually thinking about asking my derm about accutane too. I am currently trying some things right now so I will see how they work, but if not im goin to the derm :)

I talked to my doctor about it one time, and he said my acne wasn't that bad for taking a risk with the side effects accutane could possibly cause.

It's my understanding that your acne is less-severe than mine, and even I don't think I need Accutane. :)

And besides, Accutane doesn't actually keep a person clear forever, especially when the problem is sebaceous acne. Blackheads usually come back once the cycle is finished. And Accutane doesn't effect the actual oil production, but rather damages the pore so that sebum cannot be secreted.
