Overall, taking Accutane (Claravis) was a journey. I will start by saying I am not a dramatic person, and I will try to be as objective as possible while being descriptive.

I had moderate acne as my doctor said, and for the first month the put me on the drug Myorsian which is another name brand of accutane, of 40 mg once daily, it did work, and cleared up ALL my cysts. Claravis is the same thing as myorsian, just a lot cheaper. Also when my derm prescribed me claravis, he bumped me up to 80 mg a day, this really is extreme, my face BURNS when I get out of the shower ... Show Full Comment
