The thread about oily skin made me think about my six month use of Accutane. As soon as I hit puberty, I got major acne. It only got worse and worse, too. When I turned 16, my mom made me (I almost refused because I was so ashamed of how much acne I had) go to a dermatologist. Anyway, he prescribed Accutane right away. The results were truly amazing. The acne completely disappeared, I didn't have any scars, and 15 years later, the acne has never resurfaced. I've heard horror stories from people who used this medicine. Has anyone here been prescribed Accutane?
