Finally!!! I am finishing my 5 month course of accutane. Have had acne my entire life since a teen. Have thought off and on about going on Accutane for about 10 years. Finally decided to last fall and started the painstakingly slow process of finding a good derm, re-doing all the other prescription stuff for a few months then the LONG Accutane course. Well it's now at the end and I couldn't be happier. :dance: Acne cleared, pores not even noticeable. My scarring is not even as noticeable, I'd say reduced by half. I know the accutane did not reduce my scars, but without all the other issues they seem less noticeable. I actually leave my house without makeup now. Have never done that in my life. Good luck to everyone who is just trying to decide or who has just started. Although not a pleasant experience, it's worth it all!

Just curious, around what month did you see consistent improvement??

I'd say consistent improvement around month 3. I still get an occasional spot here and there or even 2, but they go away quickly and are small, don't even count as acne in my book..................the reductin in pore size and all the old red marks being gone make the occasional pimple not evne noticeable. I am older and have significant scarring so I'll never be perfectly smooth, but I'm fine with that. I really am very, very happy with the results.
