I am trying to convince my son who is suffering from acne to take his prescribed 40 mg Accutane. Yesterday we were talking and he cried about his acne. His fears of hair loss and dry skin are stopping him from taking it. Has anyone had any "really bad" experiences with this? If there is hair loss, does the hair grow back? I'd like to join this forum with his progress if I can convince him to take it. It's sitting in my kitchen cupboard. Help! We both need some peace of mind. Thank you :)
