  1. I don't know anything about that either, but I hope that it does And thank you sir, you're the reason I made it, you know, to let people know that there is hope, and maybe give them some relief. As I said, when I was trying to get accutane I couldn't find one like this, and it would have meant a lot. Best of luck with your skin, and I hope it clears.
  2. I feel really bad that acne has had such a bad effect on your family. All I can say is enjoy it now that it's not there and if it comes back deal with it. You've already solved the problem once, so there's no reason that won't work again. That's advice that I couldn't take myself though. After my acne cleared I was absolutely sick with worry that it would return. There are those milestones, six months, a year ect, ect that you watch out for as it may return. I effectively crashed and burned ment

  4. Hi:) If you're under age there's nothing we can do. What I would advise, or recommand, is that you lay out your case to your mother in a calm and resonable way. Pretend you are a business person and you are trying to get somebody to invest. I'm sure your mother feels she is looking out for your safty because of the bad reputation that accutane has. She is probably only doing it because she loves you. Weather she gives in or not, I'm sure she will appreciate being spoken to in a resonable level
  5. I'm glad you think it is good news. That was the point of the thread. There are a lot of side effects but it depends, I only got dry eye and dry lips. I broke out in heat rash if I stayed in the sun too long for about two years after
  6. Younger? I'm nearly 25 years old and have had acne for over 15 years. How old are you? I presumed you were a teenager If you didn't know what age I am then that clearly indicates that you didn't read anything I said. It strongly indicates that you came here with your own agenda. That agenda was to rain on everybody's parade. You just wanted to be negative. I've already stated that the whole reason I started this thread was because when I began my treatment, I couldn't find anything that said,
  7. bubbles55 I'm sorry that it did not work for you, but keep yo chin up gurrrrrrrrl! Keep trying, don't give up. However, I do think that it is a little mean spirited of you to tell me that my acne will come back. First of all, I don't believe that it will. Second of all, it doesn't matter if it does. Being acne free for this long has allowed me to deal with the mental effects that having acne for so long, had on me. If my acne came back today, it wouldn't bother me. Plus, I'd just go t
  8. crashoran I know the feeling. Hang in their bud. You're not alone. Maybe head to a theapist and get a jump start on that side of things. Be careful of the self talk, the negative messages you are giving yourself. You are not an ugly person, you just have acne. And listen, even if it doesn't work the first time, or your acne comes back, just go on it again. It will eventually work. Someday you will be able to look at yourself in the mirror, you will be acne free, there will be an enormous
  9. elkhoundgold Sorry it took so long to get back to you. I didn't realise that the thread had been activated. It won't kill you. If you are make the side effects known before you go on it then you know what to watch out for. My side effects were pretty mild. However, they put me on half the dose for twice the lenght of time because I have fairly severe depression. I would presume that they woud do the same for you. Now, I live in Ireland. Over here, they bring you in once a month and do all sor
  10. Hey all, I've left this longer than I wanted to. I remember back when I was first going on accutane I was looking for something like I am about to do. However, I want to keep it brief, because I don't want to revisit any of the extreme emotions. I went on accutane once. It worked completely. I had cystic acne which covered my neck and back. It destroyed my mind far more than it destroyed my body. I was twenty six when it was prescribed. I had to beg the doctor to get me a dermatology app
