    It sounds like you are already familiar with the principle that Accutane makes it worse before it makes you better. That's what my dermatologist explained to me, and he also said that I would absolutely need this drug to get better. I decided not to and my acne was almost completely gone after a year or so and is completely gone now. It turns out it wasn't necessary after all.

    No matter what, as you get older, acne will disappear. If you take Accutane, your dermatologist will no doubt credit the drug, but it's not necessary to take. Among the known symptoms are liver damage so I would just stay away from it. Wash your face, eat healthy food, and it will be gone sooner than later. Just make sure not to pick your face because scars are something you'll have to live with forever.

    It does work but most people agree that it's not worth the horrible side effects.
