Considering Accutane...

Recommended Posts

Thought about taking accutane for stubborn moderate to severe acne mostly in my T zone. Im a male teenager who is active in sports. I was wondering what I should expect... Will it be worth it? Are the chances of long term side effects high???

I'm currently on my 3rd month of accutane and it is totally worth it. I would say I'm about 90 percent clear but I did have a pretty bad initial breakout other than that you should expect some dryness of the skin and chapped lips. Some people complain about joint pain which you might want to watch out for since your active in sports but I've been lifting weights since I started accutane and I have no jointpain at all, it's just depends on the person. I don't think the chances are very high for long term side effects I wouldn't worry about it.
