No, but my sores went away with penicillin.
as to the original poster - i am assuming you have tried a lot of other therapies or have severe nodular acne in which case this will probably be the best thing to get rid of the acne. if you keep up with the blood work, don't get anyone pregnant or if you are a woman don't get pregnant shouldn't have any problem, if there are side effects, the medication can be stopped. If anyone prescribes you anything else including antibiotics, make sure to tell them you take accutane as many things interact with this.
