Roacutaine saved my life! I was severely bullied when at school for having horrendous acne. I got depressed because of this and at the age of 15 i became home bound for 6 months BEFORE taking the medication. Nothing seemed to work to get rid of my acne. Roacutaine saved my life by making me more confident and I stopped harming myself when the bullying stopped. After having treatment for 3 months I took my first steps out of the front door of my home. For any boys or girls suffering from acne and have been offered this medication I would seriously think about taking the medication as long as your family are supportive of this. Although there are side effects many people do not suffer from any.
