Accutane was my "cure." I was on it from March 2004 - September 2004 and haven't had a breakout since. I didn't experience any problems except dry lips, nose, and eyes. I really do feel like a lot of the people that accutane worked for probably aren't coming back to the boards because they've found something that works for them so why bother posting? :) I was reluctant to try accutane at first and then derm after bad derm, I wanted to take accutane so I'd hopefully never have to go to a derm again. If you're not sure if it's right for you, I'd definitely talk with your doctor about it and that way they can give you more information. Many derms want to make sure you've tried a number of things before prescribing accutane. When I first went to my most recent derm, my skin (of course) was fairly clear. This always happens to me so I made sure I took pictures of my skin when it was at its worst so that he could see just what I had been going through. Based on those pictures, accutane was the obvious choice.
