  1. I have thought about it but I just feel like it didn't cure me the first time so taking it again may just give me a temporary remission again. Just don't know if it is worth the risks twice and it not be a cure.
  2. The birth control pills do mask your natural hormones, in a way... but when I said that your hormones won't "settle," I meant that your natural hormones won't get "fixed" just because you're on birth control... so if your acne was caused by your body's sex hormones, you won't remain clear when you discontinue the pill.

I was clear for about a year then I started to get minimal acne here and there. My acne has gotten worse since October 2008 though it is not severe. I was considering taking accutane again but more scared that I will get side effects since I have IBS that is acting up lately. I have the kind that toggles between constipation and diarr
  9. Hi all... This is my dilemma. I have adult acne that is not severe but persistent. I have used countless prescription topicals and antibiotics. I have already taken accutane at 80mg for 6 months back in 2006. Accutane worked wonders and I was clear for about a year then I began having minor acne here and there. In October of 2008 it has worsened though it is not severe it is bothersome and affecting my self confidence. My doctor suggested that I do a second round of accutane since that is
