A friend of mine with almost the same proplied went on "Roaccutan" and had GREAT results... should i visit my doctor and ask for a perscription or are there something else I should try?

AJ, Roaccutane® is a very effective drug for the treatment of severe acne. It is very potent and has a fair amount of side effects. The best would be to discuss it with your doctor as I can’t determine how severe your acne is from this side of the screen. Good luck.
