  • Carry lip balm and moisturizer with you everywhere. Skin dryness is the worst side effect. Also be careful what you eat until you know how it will impact your cholesterol.

  • Drinking a lot of water and using lotion/chapstick routinely (even when you think you're ok without it) will result in far less skin dryness. Staying active helped me with other side effects, like headaches and joint aches, as well.

  • Took the new one Absorica because it is absorbed better and you don't have to take it with food. Fantastic results!! Get Aquaphor for your lips and hands.

  • The visits to the dermatologist for blood work each month were annoying but overall I thought this was incredible treatment. I specifically took Zenatane because the manufacturer is known for their high-quality and consistency.

  • Depression, anxiety so bad I had to go on disability, weakness, joint issues, IBS, the list goes on and on ten years later. To add insult to injury, I actually developed severe acne in areas that were previously clear AFTER going off.

  • Accutane, is SO worth it! It takes a confident person to make it through months of dried skin, however, if you're already struggling with appearance, you have nothing to lose! Thank you Accutane for my face back!!!

  • I take a low dose, 60 mg weekly. My dermatologist recommend 400 iu of Vitamin E ( 4 a day) for dry skin and eyes. Also for dry lips the use of Aquaphor. Drinking water, eight 8oz a day .has helped keep my body hydrated. Worth it!!
