  1. I need to vent... I am an intelligent and good looking 20 year old male. I took Accutane for 5 months and stopped because I began developing erectile dysfunction. I hoped that it would go away with time and maybe the drug just needed some time to get out of my system, but now it has been over a year. During this time, I have been forced to avoid sexual relationships almost completely. When the one girl I did try to get intimate with (x-gf from high school) found out, she broke up with me an
  2. Yea. I went off of it for 2 weeks during the treatment and everything came back to normal so my doctor said to finish up the course because she thought it would come back at the end.
  3. I went off Accutane mid September. It was very successful and cleared basically all my acne. However since being off, I found myself in the very small minority that became unable to have an erection. This has been a major self-esteem killer for me.

I will definitely be putting in a call to my derm tomorrom. I just wished I could just stay on it long enough for all theses black heads to push themselves out....but I guess I shouldn't expect everything to go 100% as planned.
  6. I was just about to post about this. Helpppp. I had mild to moderate facial acne and moderate to severe back acne going into things with very oily skin. I am just about a month into things and my skin has never looked better. Pretty nonexistent IB. However I had many side effects: pretty bad sore back, tiredness, slight redness of skin. Recently though I have been worried about this exact side effect. At first I thought maybe it was just me having a rough day, but now I am confident that
