Accutane / Isotretinoin

I just wanted to warn anyone out there with mild acne, who is considering taking accutane. DO NOT TAKE THIS MEDICATION. I along with numerous people online, have experienced persistent sexual dysfunction from 6 months of this drug. I took this medication ten years ago, and I am still suffering from the debilitating side effect. I just wanted to warn people, as I was never warned and this side effect is still not given to potential patients.

  • I'm sorry to hear you are still suffering, thank you for letting us know x

  • Thanks you! Yh im not going to take it but im goin to see my dermotologist next month because i think the oxytetracycline and raw honey is making a difference

  • I'm so sorry that happened to you. Iv taken it 2x in my 20's for 6 months to 9months with only dry lips/cracked, and dry nose and although that was not fun I now at 44 only have periods of breakouts but not severe and no side effects from 20 years ago. So I guess it's like any medication the effects are individual to each person. But for me and others it has been a god send.

    But again I'm truly sorry for what has happened to you and I'm not trying to discount or minimize your experience at all. Ty for sharing..
