Accutane For Acne/rosacea

Hey there,

Ive been on Roaccutane since August 2012.

My derm wants me on 20mgs for 12 months.

I just dont think i can do it.

Ive had bad asthma.. Ended up in hospital {drama}

Mood swings. Weight gain {I know just what i need}

Erectile Disfunction {Great}

Extreme joint pain after gym, which has made me shy away from working out.

Really bad insomnia!!!

My derm is like "U need to be on it for 12 months to get a good result" which i think is BS.

Perhaps with Acne/ Rosacea he is right.

Anyone in the same boat.

Im in my 40's and had Acne/Vulgaris in my teens and was on Roaccutane 20 years ago with total remission for 20 years.

Any tips?
