Accutane more than twice?

Posted by maria on September 04, 1998 at 01:20:48:

I went on Accutane twice and im still not happy with my skin. Istill break out oftern everywhere from my face down to my legs. True, there was a great improvement, but if i break out, the dark pigmentation can stay for more than a year and little by little it adds up. I went to my doctor and wanted to go on accutane again but he said no, that twice is enough. I tried everything tetracycline, retin-a, cleocin... but nothing works. Now he's making me go on all this stuff again even after i told him that it doesnt help. I'm extremely unhappy with my dermotologist because since it is an hmo and i don't pay, he doesn't really seem to care about my condition. I was so upset about my scars and he just stated that "you learn to live with it, wear a big t-shirt at the beach" Can i go on Accutane again or am i just doomed with acne forever?

Dear Maria,

Your note tells me that you have NOT "tried everything". If you want to know what you have not tried, go to the archives for this bb & read everything you can find about acne, accutane & accutane side-effects.

THEN, if you still have questions, write again.
