  1. I was referred to a dermatologist by my GP to see about the possiblity of accutane. My GP asked me what I wanted to do about my acne - I just said 'I want to get rid of it'. So I was on this 6 month waiting list to see a derm, and when I finally got an appointment, as mentioned in my first post, this - ironically - was at the time when I had cleared up a lot and was with my girlfriend etc. The derm basically said there was no way he'd consider putting me on accutane the way it was looking.

  2. It depends how bad your acne is. If your getting big cysts then you need to go on accutane. It has worked for me almost 100 per. It may take a couple of weeks to see full results but I would highly recommend it. It has worked better than ALL prescription medications i have used. Give it a try.
