In February, I saw a dermatologist and he was more than ready to prescribe Accutane. However, this dermatologist only seemed concerned with getting my co-payment, so I never went back for the prescription. My question is: is there anything I can use that isn't Accutane? I don't believe Accutane would be worth all the side-effect? Is there anyone else in my situation and found something that works?

Accutane is usually prescribed only after EVERYTHING else. If you have severe cystic acne, then I would jump right to accutane too, but if you don't there are many medications you can try first.

Have you tried Antibiotics?

have you tried Differin, Retin-A, or Tazorac?

Have you tried Benzaclin, Duac, Cleocin, any other topical prescrition creams?

well my friend takes accutane and she used to have really really bad acne. now she has perfect skin without any sign of having acne before. she still has to take it though so maybe you should go for it. it definitely worked for my friend! good luck!

Im on accutane 40 mg a day , so far so good. My acne is mild , but my Doctor put me on it cause I started to get bad scars and my acne wouldnt respond to anything .

If you have tried almost everything out there and u still have acne or r scarring u should go for it. Yeah ... Accutane has many side effects , but it is the most effective therapy used to treat acne. smile.gif
