  • 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.

    Gender: Man
    Taken for: Acne (severe)
    Duration taken: A year or so
  • 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.
    Taken for: Acne (severe)
    Duration taken: A few months
  • 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.

    Duration taken: A few months
  • The benefits of Accutane can last for life, and so can the side effects.

  • caused horrible hair loss, mood changes, dry nasal passages that persist years later

  • 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!!

    Taken for: Acne cystic
    Duration taken: Two years or more
  • 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.
    Duration taken: A few months
  • I had to do two rounds of this, as a female you have a greater chance of needing to do more than one round. Drink a lot of water! Chapstick medicated! Aveeno night relief, refresh liquigel, and humidifier!
