My primary physician told me that there were some studies showing birth defects even after stopping accutane. I have had two 6 month round of it (at 20-lasting 5 years, at 25-lasting 4 years). I am now 31 and have been trying everything for two years with no eliminating results. Accutane worked perfectly for me with no side effects but I have not had children and I might some day. Can you site any of the studies of the long term effects please?
