I don't think it's wise. First of all, you won't be taking any blood tests, which is mainly to check whether your blood levels (cholesterol, glucose, etc etc) are OK. Accutane is a drug that can cause serious harm to your organs if your blood levels are not of the required levels.

Don't do it without a doctor's guidance.

If you start bleeding out the rectum, i suggest you get on the next flight to a Country that deem Accutane legal!

u can go to a doctor there and get blood tests done for "tricyclerides" and u must keep a low fat diet...because Accutane is hard on the liver.

i recommend taking 20mg a day for 2 weeks and then 40mg a day everyday...because u dont have a doctor to guide u i think going any higher would be dangerous. i dont recommend u to do this, but i think u are going to do it anyway and have made up your mind so try to be careful and get blood tests done and u will experieince dry lips and excema which is normal but if u experience depression, bad headaches, rectal bleeding...then do not take it anymore.. do not take any extra vitamin A with this drug or drink excess alcohol either..be very careful and listen to your body.. i understand u are desperate for clear skin..try to research on the internet and most courses are for around 5 months. good luck..

yes i am taking accutane now. i lived in Japan for a long time.. I dont think they can help u too much as they dont sell accutane and Japanese are very "touchy" about this type of thing. so u have to be more secret about it and get blood tests taken for your own personal health. maybe research this drug over the internet more..in www.google.com It's very expensive and sometime easy or hard drug to take..depending on the person. 40mg a day for 5 months is the usual. some ppl take more, some ppl start off small and then later go up to a higher dose. whatever your body can handle or how serious your skin condition is. Accutane works best for those who have cystic acne. If your acne is only mild, there are other options apart from accutane. Here is 1 place in Tokyo that deals with acne conditions that I went 1 time.. I took a birth control pill that helped acne..for females only.. they have other treatments too.. www.tokyo-skin-clinic.com

The TOKYO SKIN CLINIC in Tokyo has accutane. The doctors are from Europe and they sell it there. It is probably expensive. But it is there.

www.tokyo-skin-clinic.com ----- you can write them mail about it. In japanese or english.

Is it not available in Japan because of genetic differences?

The legality has nothing to do with "genetic differences." It is simply a matter of a drug being labeled dangerous.

Birth control pills were only recently legalized in Japan after nearly forty years of safe use elsewhere. Japanese lawmakers are almost exclusively men. The general consenus was not that people believed birth control pills were actually harmful; rather, Japanese lawmakers (read: men) feared it would lead to promiscuity in women.

Interestingly, viagra was made legal almost as soon as it was patented.
