Epuris (Accutane) Week 12

Posted by katabbs in Defeating the Monster, 30 January 2015 · 5 views
epuris, accutane, 40 mg

So I've just started my twelfth week with Epuris. I'm currently on a 40 mg dosage. Just wanted to update my symptom list since they're getting a bit more interesting. 
 
In the past few weeks I've been getting these severe migraines . They're not too frequent, but when I do get them, they're super intense. I've gotten about three of them within...

Week 6.1

still, breaking, out, initial and 3 more...

This week was better actually, by no means clear but better. And as I said in my last post it seems to be almost gone and then another breakout. It seems endless. I just washed my face and it always looks worse after I shower or wash it. So I'm down about that. It normally looks less irritated in the morning. Still continuing the process there are a lot o...

Accutane-Week 3

Posted by l9germaine in l9germaine's Blog, 28 January 2015 · 16 views

I am trying to be patient. I admit, after taking that first pill I expected to wake up the next morning to beautiful skin; wishful thinking.
 
I'm 30.I cannot even begin to explain how much acne has consumed the past 3 years of my life. I understand that its been longer for others, a lot longer, and that I honestly don't even have it THAT bad, its co...

Day 27

Posted by hotspace in My Regimen Experience, 28 January 2015 · 24 views

Wow I can't believe it's already been almost a month on The Regimen!
 
Okay, so since last time I've still been using 1 pump of Cetaphil twice a day as my moisturizer. For a few days it was great (and it hasn't broken me out) but today especially my skin has been extremely dry and stubborn again. Before I could put a pump on and nothing would happen...

retin a, tretinoin, vitamin a and 7 more...

- lighter and more even skin tone ( but still shitty)
- with good lighting i kind of glow...

Day One- First Impression

Posted by Dearemily95 in Yes to Tomatoes 30-day Review, 26 January 2015 · 27 views

Today has begun the 30-day Yes to Tomatoes Review, and as I began using the product this morning, I have to say that I'm quite nervous. Let's begin with the review and rating:
 
Yes to Tomatoes Daily Clarifying Cleanser -

The first thing that struck me about this product was the smell. I...

Week One

Posted by P*Schulte in P*Schulte's Blog, 26 January 2015 · 20 views

Just got my Acne.org products! Surprised by the amazing quality and amount of product! The benzoyl peroxide is very soothing surprisingly, not as drying as "on the spot" by neutrogena. Very exited :)

Week 5 (Day 37)

Posted by leelowe1 in To Acne with no love, 26 January 2015 · 40 views

My face can literally change day to day and hour to hour.  Acne is such a strange beast!  After a having a better than average pre-period and period week, I am once again breaking out in larger bumps (think red, inflamed, under the skin and bound to leave red marks).  My right upper cheek has 1 and in the near future possibly 2 hard bumps w...

Accutane Blog Update

Posted by tfios22 in Accutane Blog, 25 January 2015 · 42 views

I think I would rather just post one big informative blog at the end of my accutane treatment than one every day. i feel more organized this way. I am keeping a journal to document everything so I don't forget anything. I'm sorry for everyone who has been viewing this blog since the first entry. http:////dn4iqhjvtt3...geboard//pub...

Update

Posted by Whitney88 in Whitney88's Blog, 25 January 2015 · 31 views

Update It has been about 9 weeks since starting Ziana and about 3 weeks since starting Acanya. Skin is pretty much neutral.  I believe My dark spots are still slowly reducing. Breakouts are pretty much slim to none. I may hv a white head when I wake up but it's gone that day. Honestly, I have probably had about 2 white heads in the last 2 or 3 weeks. I have...

Day Dunno - Accutane Or Clearogen/skincare Routine So after seeking a second opinion from my trusted GP he advised not to go on Accutane next week. I explained to him that all the listed side effects I currently experience so imagine what it would do to me... I get flaking skin (which has calmed down since coming off epiduo), dry lips, joint pain and not to mention a stressful job. I Know I know Im scared...

Day 31

Posted by BehindTheCamera in I Want To Break Free, 24 January 2015 · 40 views

It's been a month since I've started The Regimen and so far it hasn't been worth the money. 
 
Some of my acne has decreased in intensity, but in its place is very dry-looking skin that won't hydrate no matter how much moisturizer or how little BP I use. 
 
Still, I carry on.

Day 20

Posted by krissypants30 in My Accutane Blog, 14 January 2015 · 92 views

So my lips are chapped even more and my skin is drying a bit more as well. I am getting mild lower back pain and in my legs too. Can't really carry anything without having my arms feeling fatigued but that's the whole process of the pill kicking in. I don't have any serious side effects *knock on wood*. A little spacey and feeling "empty" at times but not...

I went to the dermatologist yesterday, after dealing with acne for the past year. I've been put on Aczone, Aldactone, Ziana, and Solodyn. I am using Obagi face wash and toner and 'eminence clear skin probiotic moisturizer'. I know my acne is hormonal and I have a gynecologist appt. today to see about switching birth control. I'm currently on Lomedia 24FE....

weight gain, continuing accutane

1st month: 60mg/day
2nd month: 80mg/day
 
My lips have gotten much better that it doesn't irritate and burn when it's not moisturized. Probably because i haven't taken Accutane in like 3 weeks. So yesterday i continued...
 
The flakiness in my skin has also subsided, perhaps also because i only wash my face at night with face wash and not in the...

Day After

Posted by oshiawase in Oshiawase's Blog, 12 January 2015 · 78 views

I took my first two pills of Accutane last night. I observed that my body felt "heavy" while i was sleeping. It was like I was "tired" or "exhausted" and my head also feels light. Then again I cannot totally attribute this to Accutane since I slept quite late last night and I have downed cups of coffee. My face is still oily when I woke up and I haven't e...
