Suffered With Cystic Acne Until Accutane Saved My Life
Procedure specific satisfaction rating
I have suffered from horrible cystic acne since I was a young teenage girl. My skin was so bad I used to cry looking at myself in the mirror. I’m now 26 years old and finished my course of Accutane a year ago. My cystic acne left tons of hyper pigmentation and scars on my forehead and cheeks. I took a 6 month course of Accutane, staring with 80 mgs and gradually went up to 120 mgs. The brand of medication I took was Claravis. It cost me $10 to fill at my local pharmacy.
Accutane is the big guns when it comes to acne. I was hopeless when I went on it as a last resort. I’ve heard of other people complaining about how dry Acccutane made their skin but I welcomed the dryness. Seeing my cystic go away over the course of my treatment brought nothing but joy to me. In my eyes, Accutane is a live safer and without it, I’m not sure how long I could have handled dealing with cystic acne. Please do yourself a favor and get on it if you have cystic acne. I’m now left with scars that I probably would not have had if I went on Accutane earlier.
