I have been on accutane previously for four months, it worked great. Now three years later I again am getting cysts. I am now twenty-eight and would like to have children in about two years, is it safe for me to go back on Accutane. Also, my insurance will not cover the drug what can I do? Is there a generic?

I'll quote what I wrote to Sarah yesterday regarding the same subject... "There is tons and tons of stuff on Accutane posted in the BB Archives section. Dr. Stoll volunteers 6 hours of his time a day to anwering people's questions so you could save him the trouble of typing the same stuff again by checking there. Just look under acne. It will also give you other alternatives with NO side affects that help your overall body, too! :) This acne is caused by stress, and it would be much better for you to start the skilled relaxation program and respond to the signals your body is sending you through your skin outbreaks. Trust me on this one! I'm 25 and had acne which is going away (actually it's GONE right now!) since I started this SR (skilled relaxation) 2 months ago. And I feel 100% better, too!" This SR will also help prepare your body for childbirth, too, I'm sure! Dr. Stoll will probably also post a message to you tomorrow, but here's a start. Best of luck to you! :)

Hi, Kay.

If you have read any of the information on this BB about acne, you know now what I have been talking about for years:
"Resolving a chronic problem like acne will never be by something you TAKE but something you DO."

Accutane does nothing about WHY you had acne. Why would anyone be surprised when it recurrs?
