Diplomat: go bother someone else.
"Half-life of Accutane is 10-20 hours, don't blame accutane for what's happening in your life 5 years later!"
Yes that's the half-life in blood plasma. Not in tissue. Everybody who knows anything about fat-soluble toxins knows that they can stay in the body indefinitely in fatty tissues. Read up on DDT if you're that dumb.
"2. I'm 18 and have used two courses of accutane, and am on a third course, and have NO problems "
Well, then you're very lucky. Let us know in 5 years if you're still feel fine.
"Crohn's disease is 99% of the time genetic"
Uhm..NOPE. I have Crohn's disease thanks to accutane. And it is NOT genetic. Best research says there is at most a 10% co-factor into a predisposition to get Crohn. That is, there is a 10% chance a genetic factor might be involved into getting Crohn more easily than other people.
To say all diseases are genetic is too ludicrous to comment on.
"4. No lawyer without a 100% garantee of a win would sue multiple doctors with MDs. Sorry, it's been tried. "
Yep, and the lawyers WON. There are currently 100s of lawsuits pending on accutane, including class action lawsuits.
You OBVIOUSLY are completely clueless, so don't bother other people with dumb remarks. Thank you for your time.
Accutane is chemotherapy..it's only to be given to people who are to die otherwise. That instead it has been given to millions of (underage) people for a mild skin condition is outright criminal conduct.
"Isotretinoin (Accutane) is a drug closely related to the chemical structure of Vitamin A"
True, but their function, expression and pharmacodynamics and -kinetics are totally different. The resemblance is only in chemical structure.
"Companies that produce these drugs don't look out for everyone's best interest."
To put it more precisely: they sell you stuff they know can kill you, and have factored the litigation costs by survivors into the selling price. Big pharma is the closest to pure evil you will get in a multinational.
"I've always been suspicious that the advanced wrinkling was due to the accutane use since it closes oil glands"
It actually kills the oil producing cells.
"But if vitamin A is poison, I suggest you stop eating."
Nope it is not. In case you've never had any education about chemicals: just the addition or substitution of one small group of atoms in a molecule can kill you outright. Hell, even the actual structure of the molecule (cis/trans anyone?) can make the difference between food and poison.
"im 17 and i feel like a 40 years old guy."
Wow, that's horrible. Make sure you tell everyone from your same age-group not ever to take accutane. You'll help saving them from what you are suffering by educating them.
"Not likely to be caused by accutane since it is a powerful anti cancer drug- ewtremly efficient against skin cancer etc. You can research that. "
Wrong. Accutane can give you IBD conditions, like Crohn's disease for me for example, that considerably increase the chances to get intestinal cancers. My risk has increased over 10-fold since I got Crohn.
Yes, accutane is an anti-cancer agent, but the side effects are so severe they can lead to cancer just by themselves.
And this is not just accutane. A lot of the chemotherapy agents can give you cancer in other parts of your body. That's why they are so incredibly dangerous and are only to be used on people who DIE otherwise. Not for a skin condition to teenagers. Get it?
"Do your research before taking this drug."
LOL...no sane person would take this drug if he had researched it.
"I have been taking Roaccutane for the last month.Any advice?"
Yes. STOP. Immediately. You are killing essential body parts right now. They don't grow back.
