[QUOTE=Accutane Dude]Accutane is 100% only a temporary cure. People that think accutane cured there acne for good are mistaken. What really happened is Accutane cured the current acne they had, then when they went off by the time the accutane was out of there system they had outgrown acne! Thats my theory at least.

If your one of those people that will not grow out of acne (like myself), accutane only will cure you while you are on it and for a certain period of time afterwards.

I was really hoping i had grown out of acne since I am almost 21 years old but it appears I may have to go back to the dark side. I didn't even consider it till even tonight when i realized that my current methods just aren't cutting it.

It's depressing to think about but I think i need another cycle :( I got a derm appointment in january so I guess we'll see[/QUOTE]
I agree with you too. I know a third course is in my near future. The only thing I really have a problem with is convincing the derm to do it yet again. If they would just give it to me when I wanted with no hassle then I wouldnt care so much. I too am close to 21 years of age and still have persistant acne, im sure it will be back to its old cystic self in a matter of weeks.

Gotta just push the derm bigtime. say whatever you gotta say to get on despite if it's true or not.

examples are (now remember this may or may not be true).

- I am constantly depressed and never can leave the house with acne,

- I neglect my friends and fmaily with acne

- I was so hapyp when i was on accutane and clear

- I understand the risks involved but it's worth it to not be depressed all the time and I had no bad side effects in the past and am willing to take that risk.

Among many other things, just keep pushing them, sometimes they don't understand how hard it is to have acne. Let them know any side effects are a small price to pay to be happy in your glory years.
