Hello friends! Happy to meet you all with an interesting post.Despite struggling with acne (particularly the cystic kind – ewww!) for, well, easily half my life, I’ve never used a prescription acne medication. I’m thankful for that, because I’d hate to find myself embroiled in a class-action accutane lawsuit! Particularly concerning is the possibility of severe side effects while pregnant, taken from the website:“If Accutane was used while pregnant, miscarriage, birth defects, premature births, and deaths in babies”.
Umm, don’t go there, okay ladies? Even if you aren’t bearing children, there are the other side effects (some well-known, some less common) – depression, liver damage, hearing loss, vision impairment etc. Maybe having bad skin isn’t so bad after all? Maybe a visit to the naturopathic to ask about natural ways to balance hormones would be a safer option?
Whew. If you do find yourself in this unfortunate position, you can visit the website linked above and see if they might be able to help.Share this post to all your friends.
