hey health boards,
i have been reading many upon many posts about what a savior accutane is. although accutane may clear up your skin very quickly, there are many side effects that you probably know about but just seem to disregard. accutane can cause deformities in children, affect the females ability to have children, cause liver disease, heart disease, mood swings even possess one to attempt suicide (which was the case with a 15 year old girl the other day) and personality changes which can lead to alot of problems down the road.
although clearing up your skin is vital and important. (i should know because i am an acne patient myself) it also helps to be conscious about the other vital parts of your body. Your face doesnt help to purify blood, your liver does, so i wouldn't think that it would be wise to destroy that because you want a "quick fix" on your face.
try to take it easy for a while and do some facials, salicylic acid peels, take an antibiotic and some topical medication, these wont affect your bodily functions dramatically.
please take my advice, because (as one who works with a dermatologist)... i see too many people who regret taking accutane when they get older because of what it has done to them.
thanks for reading.
just trying to save a few lives. :)
