STARTING ACCUTANE

Recommended Posts

I've had acne for about 7 - 8 months, and i have tried absolutley everything out there to clear it! So, I really want to start accutane soon, and my doctor said he would perscribe it to me if the minocycline pills he perscribed me last time didn't work (they didn't :wall: ) So i guess i'm just curious what you think of it, if there's anything i should know before i take it, and what any questions are that i should ask my doctor when i go there next week. thanks in advance (:

Your derm should tell you everything. It is only for long-term severe cases.

You can't have tried anything effectively if you only have had acne for 7-8 months... It takes a few years before you can decide what works.

Good luck to you!

Just do as much research as possible and make a list for your derm so u don't forget.

Honestly, I've only been on the med for two full months, but so far the side effects are hyped up far beyond anything I've experienced.

It is a hard road, tho. Please be prepared to keep breaking out after you begin. This drug takes time to work.
