Hey Tina, Hey Missy,
Well I have a different story, I was on accutane at age 16 for 10 years. It had good results at first but my body slowly built up a tolerance to it and the doses had to be increased. I to had all the usuall tests and xrays to see if it was doing any damage. I also was regularly taken off of accutane to "detox" my system. After ten years I did develop bone spurs in my hips and now my knees. Your doctor knows what he is doing by taking you off drug occasionally. By the way Tina, I am using tazorac at the moment and hate the routine applications and the greasy mess but it is all I am willing to use anymore. I have been putting it on my knee and have been experiencing increased pain in that knee which is leading me to believe that tazorac does have side effects despite whatever they say. By the way I have ehk like missy.
