Location: Darlington, UK
Time Taken: 35 days

Reason: Severe Acne Date: 8 April 2012
Side Effects
Pretty much everything described in the leaflet. Headaches, very dry lips, skin breaking apart requiring Betnovate, dry ears, nose-bleeds and inability to clear mucus, very dry and sore eyes.

Additional Thoughts
1 month so far so maybe body not adjusted but all symptoms at once is proving to be very taxing and am tempted to stop treatment. Maybe acne is better than 5-7 months of this constant eye pain with very un-aatractive skin drying issues - inside ears is the worst

Side Effects
crusty nose, lips cracking & bleeding, inconsistent periods, diziness, really sore throat when I swallow, nervous twitch in both eyes, real bad sunburn very quick & easy :(

Additional Thoughts
It does work though! If you stick to it and can cope with the side effects the results are amazing

Side Effects
-Extreme skin drying and cracking -Very dry lips -Slight depression -Sensitive voice

Additional Thoughts
This drug work miracles on my skin. Although the symptoms for me were quite sever, I cleared up quite well. After you are done using the medication, however, I would recommend a gentle soap to wash your face with as harsher face cleansers such as salicylic acid or benzyl peroxide can irritate the skin.
