ACCUTANE- Ive been on 4 courses, Am I the ONLY one that has taken it so many times!!?

I was thinking about a 5th course. I know that its obviously not a permanent cure, but it buys you time so that you can have a happy life, while you try to find a real cure that will last. I go on 6 month course, and I stay clear for a year after Im off. By then, my acne always returns JUST as BAD as it was before!! IS anyone like me here? Anyone been on accutane more times that me? Is it safe to take another course since my tests always come out fine? Thanks

Hi prettybow! I would think about some other cures for your acne. It's obvious that accutane isn't going to work for you (except temporarily) if 4 times didn't do the trick. Have you had your hormones checked? Also, have you read all the diet related threads on this board? I've about given up on that route with my dd but you might be open to that. I find that subject fascinating and frustrating at the same time. When I had my acne and if I had this forum, I would have tried diet changes no matter how extreme. Good luck to you.
