What you doctor may not have told you is that Oratane is the same as Accutane. Accutane is a very strong medication with side effects that are often worse than the condition it is treating. My boss took it, and it permanently thinned his hair and his skin looks like the Sahara desert and he is only in his 40s. He looks older than his dad.
