While it clearewd up my son's acne beautifully, he had a full blown seizure while on this medication. He had never had a seizure before and has not had once since we have taken him off the medication. It was definitely not worth it to us.

My 14 year old son has became very irritable and aggressive. He has only been taking the RX for 2 months. It is not worth it to us.
