  1. I have the same problem except I do not have acne problems - just the occssional break-out! I hate that I can't go more than an hour after washing and my complextion starts to shine. I'm 33 and have been searching for a cure since highschool! Unfortunately, there isn't one. Accutane will eliminate the oil and leave your skin absolutely radiant.

I'm 36 and have taken A four different times since I was 20. Each time I took the 40mg (twice a day and every other day doses) and never experienced any negative side effects (no depression, nothing). My skin was like a baby's bottom - perfect.
