Has anyone taken it before? Im planning on taking it but my parents read the whole ipledge program booklet and they think that after taking it ill think about killing myself. They know im sane but yet they get all scared about the side effects that never happen. If anyone has taken this before could you tell me that nothing happened in terms of emotional stability.

i took it when i was sixteen. for the year i was on it, it sucked major balls. my skin would peel all over my body and no matter how much chap stick you use, your lips will be always cracked and bleeding. i actually did get pretty depressed while i was on it, i dont know if it was the drug or just growin up as a teen, but i was usually not happy. now that ive been done with a for a few years i can look back and see how great it worked, but until you're done with it its gonna suck.

I'm on it now. I've had some moments of "depression," but I think that it's coincidence (basically best friends becoming enemies and then friends again, etc.), and not the Accutane. My skin is dry, but it's mainly the lips that are the problem. Lotion takes care of the face, and chapstick does a decent enough job for my lips. Just remember to take the chapstick with you, because you need to apply it a LOT.

And the side effects about suicide and stuff are nothing to be concerned about. I don't remember the statistics my dermatologist gave me, but it was something EXTREMELY insignificant. If you're at all rational and intelligent, you won't have to worry about anything. I know two people who've taken Accutane with zero problems (except for dryness), and one of them knows about five others who took it, and THEY had no problems either (except for dryness).

I'm starting my third month on it today basically, and everyone's noticed a massive improvement. So go for it!!! Just remember to stock up on lotion and chapstick. And avoid alcohol and Vitamin A.

i only had to do 3 monthly blood checks. if your acne is truly a serious problem, as mine was(all over my body) then you should do it because there is nothing stronger over the counter or prescription. however, if you are just sick of getting pimples like most teenagers are prone get, its a waste of money because there are other products out there that are made to deal with that.

Yes. For the first month, I had to do two blood checks (one every two weeks), to make sure that Accutane wasn't making my cholesterol and other stuff freak out. Now it's just once a month, and I have to go to the dermatologist so s/he can look at my acne and whatnot. It's just annoying. Not any real problem, except (until recently) that my dermatologist was in Richmond, VA, and I live in Blacksburg, so I had to drive 400 miles back and forth just so she could look at my face and be, "Ok, you look fine!"

Whats Accutane??

Acne-treatment. It's a pill that you take for six months.
