Re: Accutane

Accutane is a very powerful drug. I was on it in my early 20's. I was on it for 5 months. Doctors have to monitor your blood once a week because it can cause organ failure. You will notice that your skin is drying out. It will be flaky and you will have to use Moisturel all the time. Did they tell you that at least 30% users will get acne again. I did. They wanted to put my daughter on it and I absolutely refuse to let her. There are other ways to control the skin without putting major organs in jeopardy.
