What do you think people should know before taking prescriptions like Accutane?
"Try everything you possibly can before resorting to such an extreme medication. And I mean that — it's serious! If you do choose something like Accutane to treat your skin, make sure you follow all of the rules and that you are willing to risk all of the potential side effects — because they CAN and DO happen. Follow the rules, they may seem extreme but its only for six months out of your entire life. After that, you can go about living however you want! I see so many Accutane accounts on instagram that joke around about drinking alcohol, and though you may be 18 and think you're invincible, drinking on Accutane can affect the way your liver functions for the rest of your life."
