04 Oct 2022 Accutane has improved my skin drastically and I have had minimal side effects. The only downside of accutane is having to consistently take it every day and having extremely dry lips.

07 Aug 2012 I've already experiences a sharp decline in the amount of acne on my face. The only downsides are that it has caused my skin to become somewhat dry and reddened at times, but my doctor said that this is normal and will subside after I finish the treatment. The dermatologist is also very cautious about the more serious possible side effects and takes a blood sample every so often. I would recommend using accutane if everything else has not worked for you.

29 Mar 2011 Overall I am satisfied with Accutane. It produced amazing results for my skin. But I would only recommend it for cases of extremely severe acne.
