    i suffered from terrible acne on my face and accutane was the only thing that worked for me. i did it for 6 months and it was the best decision of my life.  the side effects are manageable-- i wouldn't let that stop you from going on it!

    Sorry to hear about your problem.

    I understand you so well.

    I am not able to decide what to do myself. Have been reading so much and following so many forums searching for answers and still i am kind of lost and don't really know which option to trust.

    I want to give accutane a try but I am afraid of side effects as well.

    I was searching for some more info about it and its side effects and here what I found

    I have a dry skin so I think this might make it even worse. But you can give it a try. Let me know how it worked for you.
