Experience

Be prepared if you’re prone to bad skin this most likely will bring it out. I had to take another round of Roacutane to fix the damage. I was later told I shouldn’t have been put on it due to my history of acne. My sex drive also became almost non-existant.

Experience after taking

I went back on the pill and felt much happier and more myself. After the Roacutane the spots have stayed at bay.
