    Accutane As A Last Resort (Long Post)

    I decided to go through with it! Here is my story about my treatment! http://www.acne.org/messageboard/topic/360696-my-isotretinoin-accutane-story/
  2. Warning: This is a long post. I wrote this post to talk about my skin journey and to show others that it does get better! It is a long post, and is very detailed in order to help people get an understanding of this treatment route and the effects of it!
