"I don't know how many times I'll have to repeat this but, 70-75% OF ACCUTANE USERS DO NOT NEED ANOTHER COURSE, EVER. I'm 100% sure about this statistic. I am one of them. Accutane has saved my life - it was the best decision I have ever made. I'm only here for the moderate scarring I have."
"I'm sorry this drug didn't work for you guys but you ARE in the minority. Cured people wouldn't be visiting an acne forum, you know what I mean? Unless for scarring or whatever."

This statement is actually incorrect and misleading. Yes 70% of people do not need another course of accutane again. I have been on accutane twice and it cant even clear me up 100% while I am on it. BUT what they mean by this statistic is that 70% of people who take accutane do not need another course because when their acne does come back its not SEVERE enough to warrent the use of accutane again. That does not mean the person does not have an acne condition after treatment, they still may have mild or even moderate acne come back after treatment, just not severe enough to use accutane again. It is not a miracle cure, but it does work very well and for SOME it will clear them permanently. My acne actually was not bad enough to take accutane (so they say) but I insisted, so they let me. That does not mean I did not have a bad acne condition. It works great for some and not so good for many others. But that statistic does not tell the whole story on accutane. Goodluck to all users and I do recommend accutane, just don't expect a miracle.
