Doctor's View on Accutane For Treating Severe Acne: The Pros & Cons and What Patients Need to Know

BEST ACNE TREATMENTS By Sadie Gillam

Accutane (generic name Isotretinoin) is the most powerful oral medication in western medicine that has been used mostly for treating severe cystic acne . It was first introduced into the US market in 1982 to help those who could not find relief for their acne condition in any other way.

For a time it was considered a miracle drug, offering acne sufferers who had tried practically every other treatment, long lasting blemish free skin, and for some patients a complete reduction of their acne condition.

Unfortunately, blemish free clear skin may also be accompanied with a list of possible side-effects including life threatening birth defects, severe depression and suicidal thoughts to name a few.

After millions of dollars in damages were awarded to former Accutane users it was withdrawn from the US market in 2009. It is now only available under a special program called iPLEDGE - the patient must be registered in the program and sign documents stating that they understand the dangers of taking this medication.

Here are two perspectives on Accutane. Firstly, a former acne sufferer talks of her experience of taking this medication during her teens and the effect it had on her, followed by Dr. Neal's (www.accneparactice .com) professional opinion on the pros and cons of Accutane.
