Accutane - a success story

I read a bunch of posts on this BB about Accutane, and didn't find too many positive stories about Accutane. I decide to share my success story w Accutane. I am just finishing up my second round of Accutane (took my last one today). My first round was when I was 19, and it worked for a couple years (until I started a high stress job). Acne came back at age 24. I tried everything the doctor suggested, but nothing worked. I finally decided I was 26, and would do anything to get rid of the freakin acne. I went on Accutane again, and it had an amazing effect. My face has cleared up, totally (which didn't happen the first time)
With Accutane, you do have to watch what your doing. Keep a healthy diet, and treat your body right (meaning drink water, get your sleep, etc). I was lucky and had only minor side effects (dry lips/skin).
Accutane isn't for everyone, I agree. But remember, most the time you'll only hear negative comments about something. People with bad experiences will always be more vocal. Take an objective look at Accutane before you decide.

Thanks, Eric. Hi, Jack.

However, you are missing the point here. The worst side effect of accutane is when it works without any noticeable bad effects. All that means is that you have successfully put black tape over the warning lights of your dashboard.
