6 Weeks Done

Posted by SavedByGrace1, 18 July 2012 · 197 views

Well, I had a follow up appointment with my derm. He gave me Tazorac cream for at night and Klaron lotion for the morning. This is all maintence. I am also considering getting the Olay spin cleansing brush to just keep my skin extra clean to allow for even better absorbtion of the products. So far so good. I have had 2 pimples since stopping. They went away...

Well, I went to the derm yesterday at the end of my 5th month, and though he told me to do a 6th month, I mentioned my hair shedding and he told me that I could stop.

I didn't realize this was such a scary side effect, I didn't have any shedding the first time I took it...I would really like some tips on whether or not this side effect resolves...

3 Months Down, 3 More To Go

Posted by SavedByGrace1, 02 April 2012 · 155 views

I went to the Derm last week, which would be my half way point. Told him I was getting especially sore and achy, and so he agreed to lower my dosage this month to 60mg/day instead of my usual 80mg/day.
I feel better already, but I have to say, he does plan to up it again for my final month in June. I really am praying so hard this works this time. I...

The Accutane Is Eating My Eyes

Posted by SavedByGrace1, 15 March 2012 · 180 views

For real, my eyes are so dry....and red. I fear beginning the use of drops because I have heard it said that you can become dependant on eyedrops and I certainly don't want that...I sitll have 3 months to go!

Mid-Month 3

Posted by SavedByGrace1, 12 March 2012 · 135 views

Hello All, just wanted to give a quick update...my skin looks amazing.

I am on a much higher dosage...as I was finally able to calculate my recommended dosage and apparently mine is way off. I'm 120 lbs and on 80mg a day for 6 months....and I asked the Dr. if he was sure, and he said absolutely.

Hopefully this will do the trick.

My skin is just fine,...

So I was reading somewhere that if I take Fish Oil and Biotin supplements while on Tane' that will help with hair loss.

To be honest, the first time I was on it, I don't remember hair loss, I wasn't active on these boards, and I wasn't even aware that was a side effect. Therefore, I don't think I had that issue last time, and I likely...

One Week

Well it's been one week and I just have chapped lips. I am drinking tons of water as well.

I still don't know what to do about the visible veins. Noone on here seems to have an issue, with the exception of an old board that I came across, but those members are not active on the boards anymore.

I did call my Doctor and the nurse put me on hold to...

It Starts

Posted by SavedByGrace1, 09 January 2012 · 146 views

My lips are only slightly chapped....but I'm obsessed with chapstick in the first place, so it's no big deal.

I was in the fitting room yesteday and I noticed that alllllll of my veins are very blue and prominent. They are not sticking out, but they are visible. Is this a side effect? I don't remember/wouldn't know last time, because I was...

Starting Tonight

Posted by SavedByGrace1, 04 January 2012 · 187 views

Well, I am picking up my first month of pills tonight. I am slightly nervous, but mostly excited. I am nervous because last time, I had this in the summer, so the dryness wasn't too awful...and now its deathly cold outside and I'm thinking it's going to be unbearable. In any case, I have to do it.

I bought calcium to take, because I don't drink milk, and...
