Re: worried about accutane
Hello. I consider accutane a wonderful drug. I grew up with fairly awful cystic acne, and didn't discover the medication until my late 20's. The initial phase (first month) did cause my skin to break out horribly, but the ultimate results were incredible. My skin was flawless for the first time in my life....it lasted about a year...It is important to know that accutane results are not necessarily permanent, and it is a pretty powerful drug (don't even think about getting pregnant!).However, I never experienced the serious side effects sometimes listed in Accutane discussions (suicidal depression, vision difficulties, etc.), and the initial breakout was well worth the results..
