My 16 year old daughter has just stopped using this drug after only a couple of months. It clearly had a strong psychological effect on her bordering on the psychotic. Certainly it is a drug to be very closely monitored especially by the adults responsible for those adolescents using the drug!

I read the article. That's such a sad story.:(

I personally didn't notice any behavioral changes while I was on accutane. Then again, I took it as an adult in my mid 20's.

I wonder if adolescents are more susceptible to those kind of mental side effects.

Weak pathetic people preventing this drug from people that really need it, making it almost impossible to obtain (for me, and others). More easy to get cocaine then accutane.

Im 19 and have had no ill effects psychologically...It depends on the person and their age I guess.

honestly...if someone does anything wrong these days, its everything but their own fault...YEA its accutane who made someone go fuckking crazy, not the person themselves, how bout you stfu along with your typical group of people who are against being responsible for your own actions...seriously, find the nearest cliff and just jump.

ive been on roaccutane for 3 weeks now and can feel it putting a massive stress on my body i feel tense from the moment i wake up, i cant box this season because my joints ache for days after training plus my eyes sting, face itches and my hair is thin and dry and it is all stressing me out.. but i know it is only for a few months and in the long run i will be much happier so im just dealing with it but if i was younger and in different circumstances i could easily see how this drug could send me crazy.

I think my dermatologist told me that it's something like 1 in 200 people notice mental side effects or depression from accutane...

I've tried both original brand and generic accutane. I prefer generic accutane - There is no difference in effectiveness as far as I can tell between the brand and generic versions. The real difference is price, no comparison. And this suppliers seem honest and reliable. On the site http://g-isotretinoin.info I've just placed my 3rd order.
Thanks for that address. http://g-isotretinoin.info has my pills within a week at my door. They perfectly work! I have found them very good value for money. My special discount coupon 1VQY12ZPi3

I started Accutane when I was 17. My skin looked really bad. I had pimples on my face approaching the size of dimes. The acne went over my shoulders, down the front of my chest and down to the bottom of my back. I tried all the creams and fancy products and nothing worked. My doctor finally put me on a round of Accutane from http://g-acne-treatment.info . The first dose I was on for a couple of months didn't do much, so the doctor doubled it. Within six months, my acne was almost all gone and I stopped treatment. Within 18 months I had zero acne and zero scarring - my skin was utterly flawless and still is. I am now basically cured of acne - less than half a dozen pimples in ten years. Miracle.

I fought with acne throughout my teenage years and tried everything to get rid of it (proactiv, neutrogena, retin-a, clean and clear, you name it). I experienced quite an initial breakout soon after I started accutane but was expecting it and told myself my skin would get better. Iím now in the last week of my treatment and my skin is flawless. I havenít had a single zit in 3 months, and scars from my previous breakouts are fading. If your in doubt that accutane can solve your acne frustrations, donít be. Survive the first two months or so of accutane and you will be rewarded with the complexion youíve always wanted.

There is a history of violence and d death with this drug. Since the drug is now involved with compromising the court decision then the drug needs to be removed from the public market place for the safety of the society.

Before I went on accutane from http://fastacnetreat.info I had tried EVERYTHING... constant Cremes, Benzyol Proxide, 3 different antibiotics, retin A Creme... you name it I used it. None of these things really worked for me; it would only suppress my acne. BTW.. I should inform everyone on here that I never had awful acne, I had moderately severe acne that I was sick of dealing with. I finally decided to go on accutain and I will admit I was really scared. Thr first two months were rough not going to lie; after those two months my face started looking better and better. Now I have NO acne on my face just a couple on my back... it really is AMAZING. Don't let anyone stop you from taking this medication... it works and no one should suffer with acne!!! I have one more month so lets hope I get 100% clear!! I'm at about 88%

I have ordered Accutane prescription drugs (without a prescription) online from http://fastacnetreat.info about two years ago, and was pleased with the speed and quality of service.
I'm thinking of doing the same thing with my medication. The meds is expensive, but there is a generic version available overseas.
I love the idea of taking responsibility for my own health (or lack of health) and skipping the bureaucracy... to say nothing of having to drive to the doctor, wait in line, yet again, to get a prescription refilled.

Wow this thread has become a spam factory for people saying they sell accutane. These sellers will rip you off. Take payment and send you nothing.

Dont buy from here

I started on Accutane from MOREPILL .COM on 2nd March and I'm now coming up to finishing my treatment with only 3 weeks left. I genuinely can't express enough how effective Accutane is. My acne was moderate and rather than lesions, etc. I had lots of small spots all over my chin and forehead and beginning to reach out to my cheeks. I went on Duac then oxytetracycline and enthromycin, none of them worked for me! I saw results from Accutane in the first month! My skin did get dry and my lips chapped and flaked badly but if you keep applying E45 and Burts Bees it will keep the flakiness at bay! Honestly I am thankful to Accutane for my new found confidence and I now happily leave the house with no make-up!
