Sure: Don't expect them to do you any good. The real scientific work on all three has been horribly disappointing. I'm glad you're on Accutane after having been scarred by acne and wish you had been treated in a more timely way. Stay the course with your treatment. If you are interested in vitamins, herbs and so forth, get with an evidence-based holistic-friendly physician in your community.

all 3 are a waste of money. DR Friedlander is right. Do it yourself herbs and vitamins, snake oil, are a sucker game.
