Accutane Question

Hello everyone.

I just have a question that's been bothering me for a few days now: My sister has severe acne and she's been on Accutane five times. Yes, five. And it just never seemed to work for her. Well, I was curious if accutane will fail to work for me as well. I'm almost 18 and I've had severe acne for a few years now and my dermotologist is trying to put me on accutane. I'm all for it, but I'm concerned that this drug will do nothing for me. Since it didn't help my sister at all, is there a great chance I'll experience the same thing? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Re: Accutane Question

people respond to treatments in different ways even though your sis hasnt responded to this does not mean you wont im on accutane now day 14 for the 1st time if you have severe acne as well i would go on accutane and try it but as you will no there are serious side effects
