Yeah Accutane can have like those severe side effects like depression as you said, I read the warnings on the package, but really I took the risk, and my family would have noticed if I fell into some sort of deep depression. I had to get my blood tested every month to see if my liver was fine and it was throughout the nine months I was on it, and you couldn't drink when you were on it, so that made it even less fun.
Yeah acne was really bad for me, they were really big and red and it hurt to touch it, so I willingly took anything to help with my acne. I've heard Accutane not working for some people, and like Accutane is the strongest acne drug out there. :l
