Does it work? Or are the people who have succesfully used accutane just not coming back to the messageboards? What's going on here?[/QUOTE]

I'm getting my last RX for Accutane this Friday. If all goes as planned, in a month from Friday I should never have to come to this board again.

Since being on Accutane I've had exactly 4 zits-and all in the first 6 weeks. Before this I had SEVERE acne for nearly 16 years.
In the beginning I had some side effects that made it unbearable. I suffered through and now I think I made the right decision sticking with Accutane.

I personally know of 2 others who have used Accutane.
One has been off for 4 years and not 1 zit, the other has been off for about 8 months and gets about a pimple a month.
They both look great.

I think the affects are different for each person. Some people swear by Retin A or Pro Active, but both made messes out of my face.

The derm or RX could make a difference as well.
I'm on a significantly higher mg, and longer duration than Everyone else I talk to(80-120 mgs a day for 6 months). I have no clue if this could be a reason for the acne to return or not, but it is something to consider.
