: : What you say is totally correct - Accutane does help many people, and their depression is relieved by a clear skin. Taking this away from you is not what is intended. Imagine your child/sibling/parent was a happy person except for the acne, they took roacutane, skin clears but they are not that happy any more, then they kill themselves???? How would you feel? If you were aware that this was a potential problem, would you not monitor them, in fact if they were aware of the problem, they might seek medical advice/help.
: What is required is a full warning and monitoring program to accompany the taking of roaccutane.
: These are my views anyway
They are your views and MY views. While I do feel very sorry for this family and their loss, I am also very pro-accutane. Taking the drug away is not the answer.
