Sorry for my English as I’m from Turkey. I took Accutane for sometime & got debilitating symptoms. I was so hopeless until I took suggestions from a researcher.
I was so suicidal for 6 months. But i am improving rapidly now for 3 days. His suggestions fastly improved my ed and libido. Depression decreased. I am hopeful now.
I will update my progress further.

Could you please specify your regimen experiences? Which researcher helped you? Glad you’re feeling better




List some of these things this researcher is doing for you, good to hear your improving!

Hi @yedek1 1st, Welcome to this community. I am sorry to hear all you have been going through. There are a lot of us going through similar symptoms. I’m sure we all are glad you are feeling better. Sometimes it can be like a rollercoaster, so keep fighting the good fight. You are not alone.

Sounds trollish. Why would you post you’re recovering/a researcher helped you but not state what protocols/procedures you’ve done to help? Nice m8.


Welcome to our forum, AccutaneZombie!

May I ask to post your member story as well and to participate in our survey if you have been suffering from persistent side effects for at least three months since quitting. We really need more data from Post-Accutane patients,

Thank you and enjoy your stay here!

He said he’s not a native english speaker so he may have been tired from answering the introductory questions and all that. Give him some space.
