Accutane Last Resort? Or Take Now?

Recommended Posts

My acne started when i was about 14 and was very bad. I took Accutane a few years later and it worked. But 10+ years on and I’m getting moderate outbreaks and have done now for last year or two, but worse in last month.

I was going to start taking Accutane again after a meeting with my derm. He gave me two options: a different antibiotic (i used one for 3 month it worked but not working now) or Accutane.

I’m wondering about taking a strong dosed vitamin A (but within safe measures) along with the antibiotic instead of going for Accutane.

My acne isn’t leaving any scars but is leaving post inflammatory marks (red marks).

One strange thing is that I stopped taking vitamin D supplements a few weeks ago, this is when things started to get worse. I wonder if Vitamin D could be at the core of my acne outbreaks. I’ve done a test and waiting result, considering getting a stronger dose is shows im lacking.
