Will I Be Perscribed Accutane?

Recommended Posts

I'm new here and I need a little bit of advice. I am 17 and I have had moderate acne for at least seven (yes, seven) years. I am seeing a dermatologist for the second time ever in about a month. I was wondering if anyone could tell me what they think the dermatologist might perscribe me. I'm really hoping for Accutane. Below is a list of things I have tried that, for the most part, have not worked.

Oral Prescriptions:

Doxycycline 
Tetracycline 
Birth Control Pills (Alysena)

Topical Prescriptions:

Benzoyl Peroxide 
Salicylic Acid
Tactuo
Clindoxyl (Tried three separate times)
Stevia-A (Tried three separate times) 
Benzaclin 
Differin

Holistic Approaches: 

Lemon Juice
Salt
Baking Soda
Bananas
The "caveman regimen" (no products, only water)
Tea tree oil
Rubbing alcohol
Cod Liver Oil
No makeup

Face Washes/Products without Perscription:

Neutrogena (Multiple Types in excess of 4)
Proactive (Tried two separate times)
Oxy (Two Types: Acne Prone; Sensitive)
Bioré (Charcoal)
Avon 
Clean and Clear (Multiple Types in Excess of 4)
Clearasil (Multiple Types in Excess of 4)
Glycolic Peels
Specto Gel 

Health Changes:

No dairy
Exercise 
Lots of water
Tea
Eating healthier
Meditating and stress relief strategies

It's very likely considering how persistent your acne has been for such a long time and the fact that it hasn't responded to several other topical or antibiotic treatments. Just bring it up with your doc and see what he says.
