Accutane - Fake ?

Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm on accutane for 4 months and 15 days. I have a very big problem: (.... So I feel that accutane does not work, in particular I think it's fake! In the first two months being treated with Accutane - from Italy. If it had more side effects. After the second month I bought the drug from Bulgaria. Since I am not my skin it is dry and lips. it does not work! But I can not buy it from another country. What do you think? is there such a counterfeit drug, or you just have to wait ??? 4 months is a long time, but no results! (40 mg per day / 65 kg)

Here are pictures of Accutane in Italy, and of Accutane in Bulgaria.post-163100-0-77830000-1336039386_thumb.post-163100-0-04977900-1336039359_thumb.post-163100-0-67690600-1336039018_thumb.

If the unbranded Italian one was working then I'm not sure why you are showing us the box.

As for the Bulgarian Roche one, if it is a copy then its a very good copy. The box looks identical to mine (apart from the language), and the foil containing the pills also looks identical. It even has braille on the cover of the box. Did it come with an instruction leaflet?

I say that there are package leaflets, but what role it plays in whether a fake drug. Do not know anymore what to do

Others have bought online from other countries and been fine, but online there is the risk however of buying mere sugar pills so no active ingredient. Take a photo of the front of the foil which holds the pills, and I will see if it matches mine. If it is a forgery then it is an exceptionally good one, as it really does look identical to my Roche boxes.

Edit: Just noticed its missing the pregnancy warning and the two small black lines are in a different place. Whos to say thats not normal in Bulgaria though.

Maybe it's because you have the lower dosage one... 20mg... that's quite low to be honest

I have 40mg and the first month it gave me the most CHAPPED lips and skin ever! Super dry. But for some reason, I stopped having dry skin... I'm not sure if it stopped working or because I bought a good moisturizer (cetaphil). My friend went from 40mg to 80mg!

There are others who are treated with this medicine from Bulgaria and had no problem. I do not know why I stopped this drug works, it's poison and it removes acne. I am 4 months, my acne is not severe, but not removed and this is
