I think I might’ve used it. It was causing dryness of the skin for me so I had to stop it immediately.

I took it a very long time ago.

back when I was a teen and had friends with bad acne. it seemed their dermatologists would try just about everything first and none of it worked, then they would get on Accutane as a last resort and their acne would miraculously clear up.

is that stuff still prescribed? I heard they don’t use it anymore.

Yes. It was a horrible experience! Dry eyeballs, chapped lips, vision problems, joint pain… It’s pretty hardcore. I had photosensitivity for years afterward.
