I have been taking Claravis now for a month (30 mg twice daily) and the results thus far have been satisfactory. My skin went from severely broken out on my cheeks and chin to mostly clear. It has caused my chin to flake and my lips to chap, but it's worth it considering the alternative and that the treatment will only continue for another five months.

Claravis (Accutane) is the only thing that has ever worked for my skin, and it works so fast. After just two weeks, my skin was completely clear and in the three months I've been on it, I have had maybe three breakouts. It's fantastic. I play rugby so the muscle sorness and joint pain is exaggerated, and dryness around my mouth and lips. Just lotion and moisturize often. I've started u ... Show Full Comment

This medication has worked tremendously. I've only been on it for two weeks, and I barely have to wear make-up anymore.My face is so clear. There are slight side affects. The only thing that really bugs me is super dry lips. My scalp is also dry and gives me dandruff, but at least my hair is not oily after 1 day. So far, it is working very well.

Comment:
I have black heads, white heads, and some cysts on my cheeks. I have been on Claravis 40mg a day for 2 weeks and m acne has gotten worse. Is this normal and should I just tough it out? I am also having terrible back and wrist pains, sensitvity to light, extreme dryness, and rashing on my forearms. So far I am very unsatisfied. Does it get better? Please help!
