OK what is wrong hear?.... major side effects, FDA alert, “ reports of suicide or suicide attempts”, birth defects, including mental retardation and physical malformations.

But Doctors will still Prescribe this drug.. and recommend not to tan?

Hey jennymae!

Boomer sooner! I am so excited when I see a fellow sooner on a board, especially female. I just found this board last night.

Have you ever tried Clear Advantage from Arbonne? I know a lot of people who have had success with it. Some who have even had to go on Accutane before, which is a horrible drug, but are cleared up now. Since I am new to the board & this is only my second post I don't want to seem like I am spamming or anything. But if you would be interested in hearing more just shoot me a PM.

48 days until Sooner football!!

Try to find a skincare specialist who deals with acne. I treat people everyday with acne with great results. There are enzyme peels, glycolic peels and use of galvanic current really helps. If you are able find a esthetician in your area and go see him/her. They will teach you how to care for your skin, take a look at your DIET and give you a full consultation. You may want to look for a happy acne light usually costs $200. You sit under it for 20 Min each day. Utilizes Blue Light kills acne, and a red light for inflammation. If you can tell me where you live I maybe able to recommend someone in your area. ALSO remember you CANNOT tan with accutane this perscription should be used only when nothing else helps it is a very serious drug and I don't recommend it. If your a girl talk to your doctor about using birth control(yasmine) seen many good results using it.
Good luck, I know it is emotionally hard dealing with acne.

im wondering about rectal bleeding, it does mean there is something wrong with your organs does? its possible because since accutane drys out all the mucous membranes that its just because everything is dry and it cracks and ends up bleeding because this is my 2nd time on it and i had this side affect the 1st time and when i went off it the bleeding stopped completely now its back cause im on it again

Re: Accutane--- Wonder Drug???
I was on Accutane too and it works great. I got nosebleeds every so often as well as died lips,skin,and even eyes. The thing I hated most was that I had to stop tanning while on it:(
