Post How effective is accutane?

I have heard a lof of things about accutane, but how effective is it really? Will my hair fall out? Can I moisturize? Can I use make-up? Any weight gain or loss? Will my acne go away forever? Is there a possibility the doctor will not want to prescribe accutane?

Yes, you can moisturize and use makeup. In my experience, it did not affect my weight in any way. My acne did not go away forever, it returned 6 months later. A major negative for me was that it affected my vision. To be honest, I wish I had never taken it. A doctor should be cautious and prescribe it to severe acne cases only.
