Depression on Aacutane
My 17 year old son has cystic acne. He has tried everything and it has not help. His doctor wants to put him on Aacutane. I have explaine to the doctor that there is a family histroy of depression. My husband and my older son suffer from this and has been on medication for a number of years. One of my husband siblilings have also tried to commit suicide.My son just wants to doing anything to clear up his face. I am so torn with this drug and the side effects it has. Mean while my son has become so embrassed about his face he does not socialize as much. I am so torn I understand my son however I am so afraid of the side effects given the history of our family. Please tell me what you think.
