AMNESTEEM: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

For Acne “I used Claravis for my first course and everything went well. The side effects that I remember were extremely chapped/dry lips, dry skin, dry hair (which I didn’t have to wash for a week), joint pain, headaches. I repeated the treatment because some acne was reappearing but nothing compared to the begining so I took a much lower dose. The second course was with Amnesteem (because it was the one available at Walgreens in that moment) and everything was going well until my liver enzymes were elevating each month and I had to stop the medicine. When I recovered, I went back to Claravis and liver enzymes got normalized. My doctor said that he experienced the same side effect with other patients.”

For Acne “I am a 40 year old male who has been subject to moderate acne my entire life starting at age 13. It has never been debilitating but it has caused certain self esteem issues (rather it has exacerbated self esteem issues). In an effort to make this as concise as possible, 99% of all that is on the internet will all the “bad stuff” written about this drugs are NOT true. Although my experience is one case, my case is a solid and reliable example of the true effects of Amnesteem / Accutane. The biggest issue with this drug are the insurance companies and the constant monthly battles to get them to cover it. Remember folks, having insurance is not the same this as having access to proper care and insurance coverage. BEST DRUG EVER!”

For Acne “April 1st, 2016 I finally decided to declare war against acne & visit a dermatologist to formulate an attack plan. I’ve had periods within my life where my skin would clear up with over the counter treatments but as an Bi-racial/African American woman I found that All skin types did not refer to “my skin type”. I found that my skin loved the Winter and Fall while the rest of me loved Spring and Summer. Within a short 2 weeks I’ve seen drastic changes in my skin from the luster to the minimum break outs that I would normally see this time of year. I have noticed moderate dry peeling patches that a little moisturizer hasn’t eliminated & more wind burned type chapped lips but would definitely recommend Amnesteem to my fellow mature women!”

For Acne “I am 49 years old & my skin NEVER broke out during puberty. When I was in my mid 30’s, it hit me slowly and then real bad about 3 years ago. At first, antibiotics & Spirnolactone worked fine, then last year my body stopped responding to that treatment.That is when I started on Amnesteem. Aside from the initial pain in the neck of filing with the Federal Government to ensure I wouldn’t get pregnant, I was excited to try it.The first month, my skin got really oily & broke out more, but my doctor said that happens. I am on my 5th month of treatment now, and my skin is almost clear.My only complaint is joint pain – I feel like I am 30 years older than I really am & I eat Tylenol like candy, yet I am told that will also subside.”

For Acne “I’ve been on this medication for a week and I know what your thinking skip this review but DON’T!!!! I’ve always had bad acne and while I’ve already seen it improve my acne (I turn 25 next month) the side effects are NOT worth it. It’s made me experience suicidal ideation off and on since beginning it, it’s made me paranoid about a lot of things and people, I’ve been so nauseous constantly that I’ve already lost three pounds, my appetite is so suppressed that I can’t even force myself to eat three times a day. I’ve been having intense anger outburst which is not like me AT ALL. This is me after six days on 40mg. I love that it’s clearing my face but I can not justify a medication that makes me want to kill myself. This has been a terrible!”

For Acne “Young teens, I’m telling you, there is hope. I used to have such bad acne all over my face. I was so insecure and always so sad and it was beginning to make me depressed. I didn’t even wanna look in the mirror. So I got on amnesteem. I had heard all the “bad things” about what it could do to you, but I didn’t care I did it anyways. It was the best choice I had ever made. My skin is so clear I never really get acne anymore maybe one or two every month or so. It’s so so so worth it.”
