Accutane Alternatives

Recommended Posts

I'm considering starting accutane, but the possible side effects are very scary. I have cystic acne on my chin and jawline and forehead. It is somewhat hormonal, but not completely. Is there something else I can try before I resort to accutane?

Well obviously...there are so many remedies out there that you can try. Just look through the forum.

If you want some for of perscription medication though, you can try something like tetracycline. I tried it before I went on accutane and did basically nothing (but it might work for you). Accutane is worth the risk if your acne really bothers you.

However, I'm not too too happen with my skin right now (1.5 months post accutane). I'm still sensitive to the sun, and my skin is very shiny. So I still look just as bad as I did with acne tbh...

Point is, don't expect to be looking like a movie star if it gets rid of your acne.
