      That accutane is scary ****************! You have to take it for 6 months to a year and during this time it makes your complexion 100 times worse. It forces all bactieria to the surface of your skin. If you have mild acne and take accutane it will be severe for the time you are taking it, PLUS it dries the **************** out of your skin. You will look like a giant walking crusty scab. When you stop taking it your skin will clear right up for a few months and then acne will eventually return, possibly worse than it was in the first place.

      I wouldn't recommend going this route unless you have a very very bad acne problem to begin with that is so bad that you have nothing to lose. If it's just moderately bad, don't do it. Accutane should be seen as a last resort hail-mary-shot kind of treatment.

        Well, I took it for 12 weeks, skin got WAY worse for the first 3 weeks, after that it cleared up completely. My skin was very photosensitive though (But I wore sunblock in bright sunlight) and it was very dry too (but moisturizer took care of that).
        Never had any skin problems again. Best thing I ever did.

          Did you have to sign a release to get the accutane, indicating that you understood the more serious adverse effects of it, including birth defects (for females) and psychological problems?

Don't get me wrong, the Beatles are still at the top of most of my lists and favorites. But people seem to intentionally overlook the fact that a lot of their songs just aren't very good (I know, this goes for Dylan and everyone else, too). But John Lennon really gets me. Paul McCartney AND George Harrison were both better than Lennon, and yet Lennon still gets seemingly all the credit. I know his death has a lot to do with it, as does his persona, but both of those things relate just about nothing to his actual music.

            No, nothing like that. It was 12 years ago though.

              i had pretty bad acne for many years. i tried lots of prescription stuff, and finally accutane with no effect.

              then i actually tried that proactiv stuff they advertise on TV thinking "what have i got to lose?" and along with a major diet change, it totally worked! (in all honesty the diet change probably did more to STOP any mew acne from develpoming, but the proactiv cleared up the old stuff well. )
              i basically cut out:
              -chocolate
              -all dairy
              -caffeine
              -and severely limited the sugar and fat i was eating.

                  Do an internet search on mega doses of Pantothenic Acid (vitamin B-5) and acne...it is safe since it is water-soluble, and has been proven effective against acne since it helps the body process oils and fats in the diet that would otherwise cause pore blockage and infection. Check out some of the research, but depending on weight you have to take about 10 grams (not MG) per day, divided over the three major meals. I've been on it for a year now, and has helped me a great deal, no side effects...most vitamin stores carry it, and you can find some good deals on the internet...good luck.

                      My doctor recommended tetracycline, but I've never taken any oral antibiotics and I'm a bit worried about side effects; are there any?


                      Your doctor recommended a drug but didn't talk about side effects? Are you sure you didn't go to a vet? Did you hear any dogs barking in another room?

                      And seriously, dude, ****************ing google it: http://www.drugs.com/tetracycline.html

                            Iknorite? I remember I went in for a physical back in 2003 and the nurse bled me without washing her hands first!

                              I did the whole tetracycline thing back in high school, but my mom waited to long to send me to the derm, so I was already pretty scarred up. TOPICAL prescription antibiotics are a great way to go, you're killing the bacteria on your skin without effecting your whole system.

                                Try Accutane, as long as you don't have a vagina, you should be OK.
