    Accutane has cured No One?!

    Hello everybody!
    I'm on my 3d month of Roaccutane and my skin is pretty clean now but ive just sorrowfully realized that acne is my whole life problem, Roaccutane will not cure me as it didn't cure anybody.
    I went through this message board and read plenty of stories like "..i had finished my accutane course 4 month ago and my skin is still clean!". But more often i saw messages saying "..my acne has come back in 4 month after i finished my course of accutane". And I have not seen anybody saying "it's been 1 year since im off accutane and zits no more bothering me". It means for some people it doesn't work, for some people cure of accutane works for 4-6 months, but acne do come back. So what to do? Shall I stop damage myself and quit my Roaccutane cure as no one was ever Accutane cured for acne?

    I know a lot of people who took 2 courses of Accutane and they never had the acne return.

    The mistake any one makes in pursuit of treatment for acne is believing there's any such thing as a cure. There is hope for control, but NEVER for a cure. The control of acne outbreaks is a lifestyle and a commitment. Once control is obtained, the acne sufferer can never allow a false sense of security to creep into our conviction that this is a lifelong effort to get control and KEEP control over acne.

    I can name 4 personal friends who took accutane and never saw acne again.

    This board is full of the unfortunate individials who were either not cured by accutane or suffered from one of its rare side effects. And rightly so as they are looking for an outlet for their frustration. Think about it...if your acne is gone, why would you continue posting here?? Those people are cured and have other things to worry about.

    I'm sorry HELP, I have to disagree with you COMPLETLEY! You should not tell someone, "Accutane will cure you". There is no cure for acne, that's a fact. Some people have wonderful results with Accutane, some don't. It's a very individual thing. I personally was not cured by Accutane and I took it twice. I think that these boards offer great support to people looking for help. Why are you here if you are preaching to someone like that????

    Re: Accutane has cured No One?!

    Mark00 i totally aggree with ur post. If accutane had cured my acne for good, i dont think i would come back to this board.

    Accutane is not a permenant solution for everybody and some may need a 2nd or 3rd course to kill the acne.

    I was on it 2 years ago and my acne came back gradually after 7 months, but the weird thing was my acne was not half as bad as it was before. i use to have moderate (borderline severe) acne but now its mild thanks to accutane. im starting my 2nd course next week. Ill just have to wait a whole year and see how things go.....

    It's pretty hard to stay optimistic with half the stuff you people say. Don't you think it kind of stresses the people out who are on the drug and have to read posts like, "Dont take Accutane" or "Accutane isn't a cure." Accutane is the last resort for some people and you people saying something like that doesn't help at all. Yes, Accutane does have potential side effects but it doesn't happen to everyone. Every drug has risks.So I have to agree with Help.

    mark00, thanks a lot for your message! I absolutely agree with your great post. Everyone is tired here of all these pessimistic messages - no cure for acne, accutane is poison

    your extremely right, -if your acne is gone, why would you continue posting here?? Those people are cured and have other things to worry about. I am sure I'll be one of them and I wish everyone here to join us asap

    Forget to say another important thing. It's 100% proven fact that the belief in successful cure is 50% cure and another 50% is your effort and treatment! So let's believe!

    I think there's one thing that can be said summed up, Russian Pepper, and that's the fact that each and everyone of us on this board, and on this planet, has different skin. It's not like Accutane's the magical cure that will cure everyone of their acne, but it's not like it doesn't do anything. It'll work for some people, it won't for others. And if you're lucky, which I really hope you are, it'll work for you too.

    Good luck.

    Ali

    Re: Accutane has cured No One?!

    ===================================
    Naturally the likelihood of recurrence is inversely related to the age and directly related to the severity of a given patient. Among the patient population that I see, I am guessing that about
    10 to 20% require a second course and that about 15 to 25% of those require a
    third course. I don't think I remember treating anyone a fourth time.

    ===================================

    All the other study (at least a dozen on hundreds of patients) I've seen on medline seem to confirm those data.
    ACCUTANE is THE CURE.

    I will start my Accutane course on september (becouse I'm having a nose job at the beginning of july)

    bye

    Kc,

    Accutane didn't "cure" me either (in the traditional sense); however, if you read some of my "older" posts you will understand my inclination of that statement.
